Linux tools make the most of AMD processors

Filed under
Hardware

Mission-critical software development specialist FSMLabs is claiming a breakthrough single digit microsecond timing on a 64bit dual core AMD Opteron processors and has released Carrier Grade Linux and tools for a wide range of AMD processors. RTLinux for AMD CPUs meets the hard real-time needs for high performance communications, dedicated networking and security systems, instrumentation and control, simulation, imaging, and other demanding embedded deployments. FSMLabs solutions help device manufacturers build and deploy applications for AMD processors with both hard-real-time responsiveness and standards-based open APIs and architectures.

RTLinux and RTCore enable developers to leverage the performance of an embedded real-time operating system (RTOS) with the interoperability and flexibility of Linux and BSD platforms.

It is no longer seen as a communal obligation, rather as a conditional activity in which the volunteer also receives benefits. Moreover, distributed revision-control systems and the network effects of GitHub, which standardize the process of making a contribution, make it easier for people to contribute casually to free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) projects.

5 ways to invigorate education with Raspberry Pi

A couple of years ago, I was talking to PayPal senior director of software development Harper Reed at All Things Open in Raleigh, N.C., when he suggested that the best way to invigorate education would be to purchase Raspberry Pis en masse and put them in public libraries. Although many schools have made sizeable investments in classroom technology, those investments have done little to advance students' understanding of how the technology works. That's where the Raspberry Pi comes in, as it's the ideal vehicle to demonstrate the educational efficacy of open source software and open hardware in the classroom. Read more
