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.

Variscite's production-ready software suit for the DART-6UL, covering Linux Yocto, Linux Debian and Android, delivers an all-inclusive solution, significantly easing development efforts and shortening time-to-market.

DART-6UL-5G key features include:
• Small size: 25 x 50 x 4 mm
• NXP i.MX 6UltraLite and 6ULL 528 MHz / 696 MHz ARM Cortex-A7 with optional security features
• Up to 512 MB DDR3L and 512 MB NAND / 32 GB eMMC
• Certified Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz
• Dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet
• 2D Pixel acceleration engine
• Display: 24-bit parallel RGB up to WXGA
• Touchscreen controller
• Dual USB 2.0 OTG (Host/Device)
• Audio In/Out
• Dual CAN, UART, I2C, SPI, PWM, ADC
• Parallel camera input
• Industrial temperature grade
• OS: Linux Yocto, Linux Debian, Android

FOSS, standard essential patents and FRAND in the European Union

As part of the research project on “The Interaction between Open Source Software and FRAND licensing in Standardisation”, a workshop was organised by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC) in collaboration with Directorate General Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CONNECT) to present and discuss the intermediate results to date. The workshop took place in Brussels on September 18, 2018. I presented a set of observations from the research on the case studies performed as part of the project that are outlined below. Other speakers where Catharina Maracke on the issue of legal compliance between Open Source and FRAND licenses, Bruce Perens on “Community Dynamics in Open Source”, and Andy Updegrove on “Dynamics in Standardisation”. You may ask what the relevance of this debate is for the wider Free and Open Source Software community. The obvious answer is that to distribute software “without restriction”, the user needs all the usage rights associated with the program. While most FOSS contributors assume that this is naturally the central motivation for anybody to contribute in the first place, there is a long history of attempts to maintain some sort of exclusive control over a piece of FOSS code, possibly using other rights than copyright.
