IPC-A-610 Class 3 rated COM runs Linux on i.MX6
Denx released a rugged, IPC-A-610 Class 3 rated “M6R” COM that runs its Yocto-based ELDK embedded Linux on a single, dual, or quad core Freescale i.MX6 SoC.
The Denx M6R computer-on-module, which is available with an M6REVK carrier board, follows in the steps of earlier Freescale-based COMs from Denx Computer Systems such as the i.MX53x based M53. The 80 x 60mm module, which uses the newer Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 system-on-chip, similarly runs the Embedded Linux Development Kit (ELDK) distribution from its sister company Denx Software Engineering. ELDK has been evolving for well over a decade, long before it switched to a Yocto Project foundation.
Q&A: Ulf Lundgren on how open source is just the ticket
I think that open source technology has a bright future as more and more people realise the true value of a service. That value is not in the products anymore, but rather in what vendors can provide in terms of services, knowledge and manpower. Also, we feel it is more fun and more rewarding when you have the power to choose freely how to work and what tools to use to reach your goal. This isn't always an option in a closed source environment.
