[Updated Mar. 12] — CompuLab’s rugged, SODIMM-style “CM-T43″ COM runs Linux or Android on a TI AM437x, and offers up to 1GB RAM, 32GB flash, dual GbE, WiFi, BLE, NFC, and more.

CompuLab’s CM-T43 computer-on-module uses the same 204-pin SODIMM connectors as its earlier CM-T335, but instead of running on TI’s 600MHz Cortex-A8 Sitara AM335x system-on-chip, it uses the Cortex-A9-based Sitara AM437x SoC, clocked to 800MHz or 1GHz, The 68 x 36mm COM is designed for networking, industrial communications and Internet of Things applications, says CompuLab.

Linux

Last week I talked a bit about how best to protect against the vagaries of human error, happenstance, and Murphy’s Law in regard to remote devices. Most of that includes trying to anticipate every possible circumstance that may occur and provide some kind of protection against them, such as remote-controlled power distribution devices that can automatically power-cycle a device if network connectivity is lost or scripts that run on remote devices that can make sure that some form of remote access, such Dropbear SSH, is running and available.

  • Sound Juicer 3.16.0 Officially Released, GNOME’s Default Audio-CD Ripper

Version 2.0 was released today, March 25, and it represents a milestone release in the development of MuseScore, shipping with an impressive number of new features, varying from major UI changes to musical notation features like tablature support, or improved playback support.
  • Edit UEFI varstores
    UEFI firmware has a concept of persistent variables. They are used to control the boot order amongst other things. They are stored in non-volatile RAM on the system board, or for virtual machines in a host file.
  • Python for remote reconfiguration of server firmware
    There's documentation in the README, and I'm sorry for the API being kind of awful (it suffers rather heavily from me writing Python while knowing basically no Python). Still, it ought to work. I'm interested in hearing from anybody with problems, anybody who's interested in getting it on Pypi and anybody who's willing to add support for new HP systems.
