Linux

When you look at the Redhat balance sheet and its latest results you have to say, wow, this company seems to have their business under control. But I wonder, if not something bigger is happening.

With every recession and every bust things change. When times are good there usually is not that much change. Sure we try out new things, but the same-old, same-old carries on. In the years 1990 to 2000 the web started and people experimented, but it was not until the years 2000 to 2009 that the Web became a part of our fabric and way of life.

Now I wonder if Linux is not going to become part of our life? I have had a love-hate relationship with Linux. And I have in the past said that I gave up on desktop Linux. Now I am not so sure anymore.

COM and Pico-ITX dev kit run Linux on dual-core Cortex-A7

iWave has launched a rugged, SODIMM-style COM and Pico-ITX form factor carrier board that run Linux on the Renesas dual-core, Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E SoC. In January, iWave launched the iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven computer-on-module, built around the dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A15 based Renesas RZ/G1M and RZ/G1N SoCs. Now the company has followed up with a 67.6 x 37mm, SODIMM form factor “iW-RainboW-G22M-SM” COM that runs Linux 3.10.31 on the dual-core Cortex-A7 based RZ/G1E SoC from the same RZ/G series SoCs.
