News

[Tel-Aviv, Israel, June 04, 2020] Following a very successful partnership between the two companies and Gold membership in the NXP Partner Program for 8 years, under which hundreds of end products were designed around Variscite’s System on Modules based on NXP’s i.MX applications processors, both companies have decided to strengthen their partnership further. With this decision, Variscite becomes the only System on Module vendor to join NXP’s Platinum Partner.

“Since the launch of the i.MX 6 series in 2012, the number of markets and companies utilizing our processors has grown exponentially,” Commented Ron Martino, senior vice president and general manager, Edge Processing Business, NXP Semiconductors. “Having strong module partners who enable us to reach and extend market penetration has been critical for our i.MX product line growth. Among our many valued partners, Variscite exemplifies exceptional collaboration through their adoption of i.MX 6 to i.MX 8 portfolios, innovative SOM design, and customer adoption across a wide variety of markets. The promotion of Variscite to our Platinum Program level is well deserved and will be the foundation for further collaboration and growth between our two companies.”

“This promotion brings a closer collaboration with NXP that will enrich the enablement and implementation of system solutions based on Variscite’s products and NXP’s technologies” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales at Variscite.

For the past 17 years, Variscite designed, developed, and manufactured a wide range of System on Modules focusing on i.MX 6, 7 and 8 processor series, providing its customers with trusted embedded solutions for different verticals and purposes. Variscite has been part of the early access for all i.MX 8 series platforms. During the past two years, Variscite launched a respectable number of new System on Modules based on i.MX 8M, i.MX 8M Mini, i.MX 8M Nano, i.MX 8X and i.MX 8QuadMax SoCs and will soon launch modules based on the i.MX 8M Plus. The Variscite products launched in synchronization with NXP’s new product introductions, delivering strong collaboration in go-to-market strategies.

Variscite continually sets a high bar for the Arm®-based System on Module market, focusing on strong customer support, closely accompanying its customer from the early concept phase to successful mass production. With the launch of the various i.MX 8 applications processor platforms, Variscite has established two highly-scalable, pin-compatible product families based on NXP i.MX 6 and i.MX 8 series. The VAR-SOM and DART Pin2Pin product families offer Variscite’s customers significant long-term advantages such as high scalability, optimized cost/performance, ease of development, and extended lifetime longevity.

Linux As An Alternative To Windows & MacOS

I downloaded Mandrake Linux and installed it onto my computer and tried it. It had a familiar-looking desktop, not exactly like windows but not too alien from it either. It contained some useful software including a web browser, email program, office suite, etc, and I loved trying something truly different. The problem I found though, it was too difficult to download new programs and to customise the user experience. It had a command-line interface meaning you needed to type computer code to download programs or change the system to your liking. Although it looked familiar, to use it on a day-to-day basis, a certain amount of coding knowledge was required. I wanted to use my computer to be productive rather than learning to code to use it. Although this experiment was enjoyable, at this stage Linux just wasn’t for me. Read more

  • What is Raspberry Pi 4 “Model B”? [Ed: I'm still waiting for them to formally apologise for going behind customers' backs, making secret deals with Microsoft to put Microsoft malware on all those devices]

    Raspberry Pi has conquered the world of SoC (System on a Chip). It has already garnered millions of followers since its release in 2012. Not only is it inexpensive, but it’s also versatile, modular, and multi-purpose. It has become popular not only as a credit-sized computer board but also as a controller in electronic, robotics, and IoT projects. The size, features, and price drive the popularity of the Pi, especially in the DIY community. To keep up with the current technological trends, the tiny board has undergone plenty of upgrades over the years, and there have been many varieties so it can cater to the needs and demands of its users. In 2019, the Raspberry Pi Foundation released the fourth generation of the multi-purpose board, the Raspberry Pi 4 B. It is the most powerful Pi to date, sporting huge upgrades from its predecessors. The compact board is touted to deliver a PC-level performance, and it didn’t disappoint.

  • Kentaro Hayashi: Grow your ideas for Debian Project

    There may be some "If it could be ..." ideas for Debian Project. If idea is concreate and worth to make things forward, it should make a proposal for Project Funding. [...] I'm not confident whether mechanism works, but Debian needs change.

  • Sam Thursfield: Calliope, slowly building steam

    There are some interesting complexities to this, and in 12 hours of hacking I didn’t solve them all. Firstly, Bandcamp artist and album names are not normalized. Some artist names have spurious “The”, some album names have “(EP)” or “(single)” appended, so they don’t match your tags. These details are of interest only to librarians, but how can software tell the difference? The simplest approach is use Musicbrainz, specifically cpe musicbrainz resolve-ids. By comparing ids where possible we get mostly good results. There are many albums not on Musicbrainz, though, which for now turn up as false positives. Resolving Musicbrainz IDs is a tricky process, too — how do we distinguish Multi-Love (album) from Multi-Love (single) if we only have an album name? If you want to try it out, great! It’s still aimed at hackers — you’ll have to install from source with Meson and probably fix some bugs along the way. Please share the fixes!

  • Neovide Is A Graphical Neovim Client Written In Rust

    Neovide is a really cool GUI client for Neovim. Although it essentially functions like Neovim in the terminal, Neovide does add some nice graphical improvements such as cursor animations and smooth scrolling. It even has me thinking about making it my new "vim" alias.
