  • Tiny SBC runs Linux on Xilinx ARM+FPGA SoC

    Linux on ARMAvnet has unveiled a smaller, lower cost follow-on to its community backed ARM+FPGA based ZedBoard. The $199 Linux-ready MicroZed board is built with a Xilinx Zynq-7010 SoC, and can be used as either a single-board computer (SBC) or as a computer-on-module (COM) feeding 100 programmable GPIO signals into a carrier board.

  • OMAP5432 Review: Texas Instruments' Dual Core ARM A15

    Linux on ARMMost of the ARM cores available today in little single board computers are either A8 or A9 cortex. The ARM A15 CPU cores should be around 40 percent more powerful than an A9 core running at the same clock speed. The A15 CPU can be found in some consumer oriented machines such as the Nexus 10. Most devices with A15 cores are dual core configurations as of mid 2013.

  • Mesa/Gallium3D Gets Its First ARM SoC GPU Driver

    Linux on ARMThe first working ARM System-on-Chip (SoC) GPU graphics driver built for Gallium3D has been merged into mainline Mesa! The driver that was merged into mainline Mesa is the Gallium3D Freedreno for Qualcomm Snapdragon/Adreno graphics hardware. This Freedreno Gallium3D driver initially supports the A220, which is the GPU that Qualcomm uses with its Snapdragon S3 SoC.

  • Virtual prototyping methodology to boot Linux on the ARM Cortex A15

    Linux on ARMSoC development teams worldwide have begun a steady move to a virtual prototype methodology for better accuracy and to accelerate the design process of all kinds of applications. For those of you who aren't familiar with using a virtual prototype, let's start with a definition, then take a look at how an engineer recently used virtual prototyping to boot Linux on the ARM® Cortex™-A15.

  • Linux 3.9 Kernel Improves ARM Hardware Support

    Linux on ARMhe Linux 3.9 kernel will be another exciting update not only for common x86 users but the ARM hardware support continues to advance too. The 3.9 ARM SoC pull was sent in on Thursday by Arnd Bergmann. Among the noteworthy updates this time around include:
