In a matter of only two months, Variscite has announced the launch of an additional enhancement for the DART-6UL System on Module (SoM) product line based on the NXP Cortex-A7 i.MX6 UltraLite family.

The newly-introduced DART-6UL-5G variants are enhanced with certified Wi-Fi/BT module with 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n and dual band 2.4/5 GHz support. Those variants provide improved performance and effective bit-rate over its Wi-Fi, an ideal solution for products requiring high data transfer rates over the wireless network.

The DART-6UL-5G variants will run alongside two popular early variants: Initial i.MX 6UL variants, recently enhanced with 696MHz processor speed grade, and low-power i.MX 6ULL variants. All variants can be satisfied within a very attractive price range - starting from only 24 USD.

The DART-6UL-5G is pin-to-pin compatible with other DART-6UL variants. Sharing the exact same features-set and variety of interfaces, all products are compact (only 25 x 50 mm), have optimized cost and power, boast a full -40 to 85 temperature range and carry a 15-year longevity commitment. Leveraging this rich feature set, the platform is commonly used in fast emerging applications, such as the Internet-of-Things, industrial-grade embedded applications and portable/battery operated embedded systems.

Netrunner's Unique Blackbird Soars to New Heights

Blackbird, Netrunner's version 19.01 release, hit the download servers on Jan. 14, and this distro deserves to be considered bleeding-edge. Netrunner is a step ahead of other KDE distros, thanks to its solid integration of classic KDE desktop performance with Web-based applications and cloud services. That said, if you aren't fondness of the K Desktop, Netrunner may leave you wanting more desktop simplicity. For that you must look elsewhere. KDE is the only desktop available from the Germany-based Blue Systems development team. Blackbird is based on Debian's "Testing" branch. Its developer brings some aggressive updates to the distro that propel it ahead of other distros' regular development cycles. The main updates include KDE Plasma 5.14.3, KDE Frameworks 5.51, KDE Applications 18.08 and Qt 5.11.3 for its essential security updates. Linux Kernel 4.19, Firefox Quantum 64.0 and Thunderbird 60.3 push the envelope as well. One of the more noticeable new features in Blackbird is its new Netrunner Black theme. This theme is based on a dark-toned contrasting visual. It uses the Kvantum theme engine, plus the Alpha-Black Plasma theme, to produce a more 3D-looking design. Read more
