COM family adopts Freescale’s new i.MX6 UltraLite SoC
TechNexion expanded its EDM computer-on-module line with models based on new Freescale i.MX6 SoCs, including one with the new, IoT-oriented i.MX6 UltraLite.
TechNexion’s new EDM1-CF-IMX6UL, EDM1-CF-IMX6SX, and EDM1-CF-LS1021A COMs are implemented on the company’s ARM- and x86-compatible, SODIMM style “EDM” form factor, which uses a 314-pin MXM edge connector for plugging into carrier boards. All three modules conform to EDM’s smallest, 82 x 60mm EDM1 format, and use the standard’s Type 1 signal assignment option.
Benchmarks Of 45 Linux Systems From Atoms, Athlons & Phenoms To Xeons
Yesterday I ran a set of interesting CPU-focused benchmarks on 45 of the Linux systems within my custom-built basement server room that represents many of the systems powering the upstream daily open-source testing at LinuxBenchmarking.com. The tests ran yesterday were primarily processor focused as not all of these computers/servers are equipped for handling GPU testing, etc. This article is basically to provide a look at many different old and new, low-end and high-end systems. The software stacks for the different systems vary based upon what they're testing day-to-day within the server farm, so take these results as you wish. Most of the systems are running Ubuntu 14.04/14.10/15.04 with recent Linux kernel versions.
