  • Update on HDX Ready SoC

    Linux on ARMCitrix is working with SoC partners to develop the HDX Ready SoC solution which the OEMs use to build the innovative devices with great user experience for HDX technologies. We delivered the first phase of this solution in our 'Receiver for Linux 12.2 for ARM' where Citrix optimized the whole 2D Graphics (server side graphics) performance and shared the SDK with partners to accelerate it on their hardware or DSP components.

  • Your New ARM SoC Linux Support Check-List - ELCE 2012

    Linux on ARMSince Linus Torvalds raised warnings about the state of the ARM architecture support in the Linux kernel, a huge amount of effort and reorganization has happened in the way Linux supports ARM SoCs. From the addition of the device tree to the pinctrl subsystem, from the new clock framework to the new rules in code organization and design, the changes have been significant over the last one and half year in theARM Linux kernel world.

  • ARM server hype ramps faster than ARM server chips

    Linux on ARMIf I didn't have to man El Reg's systems desk for a paycheck and had a little venture capital to blow, I might start a company called Leg Systems, headquartered on the Isle of Man– not because of its tax haven status (which is eroding), but because my company would sell ARM-based systems and say that we wouldn't charge an arm and a leg for them.
