Snap-in Tegra K1 COM tackles vision processing, deep learning

Filed under
Linux

Toradex’s SODIMM-style “Apalis TK1” module runs Linux on a 2.2GHz quad-core Tegra K1 SoC, and offers extensive I/O including SATA, A/V, USB 3.0, and PCIe.

The SODIMM-style, 82 x 45mm Apalis TK1 computer-on-module is pin-compatible with Toradex’s earlier Nvidia Tegra 3 based Apalis T30 and i.MX6-based Apalis iMX6 modules. The Apalis TK1 moves up to Nvidia’s Tegra K1 SoC, which here has four of its Cortex-A15 cores clocked to 2.2GHz. A fifth companion Cortex-A15 handles low-power duty. The real draw here, however, is the CUDA-enabled, 192-core Mobile Kepler GPU, which can be used for vision processing, GPU-accelerated parallel processing, and deep learning/machine learning in addition to good old fashioned graphics rendering.

​Bogus Linux vulnerability gets publicity

I am so sick and tired of crap security news about Android and Linux. In the latest example, GoSecure claims it's discovered Chaos: a Stolen Backdoor Rising Again. Yeah. Right. Let's look closer. First, we have a neat name. Can't have a security bug these days without giving it a sexy name. But, what is it really? Well, it requires the attacker to break into the target system by "brute-forcing SSH credentials". Wait. What? To get this you need someone to log in to your server!? Read more

The best Linux web hosting services of 2018

Linux hosting is everywhere. Whether you're looking for a simple shared hosting account or a powerful dedicated server, the chances are that you'll be offered a Linux-based option first. In many cases, you might not care. If your hosting needs are simple, you'll probably choose an account based on the allocated web space, bandwidth and similar features – the operating system is so far down most people's priority list that often it's not even mentioned in comparison tables.
