Massimo Banzi announced it some minutes ago during his annual “The state of Arduino” presentation at Maker Faire Bay Area: Arduino Yún is the first of a revolutionary family of wifi products combining Arduino with Linux. Yún means “cloud” in chinese language, as the purpose of this board to make it simple...
While significant effort is put into designing custom hardware architecture, it is equally important that developers have a highly complementary toolchain that leverages the unique properties and capabilities of the end device.
Today we know them as a feature phones but ten years ago a vast majority of mobile phones were used just for voice calling and messaging. The gradual roll-out of Internet services,
Figure 1: Intel and the Linux Foundation collaborated on Tizen, an open source HTML5-based platform for smartphones, IVI, and other embedded devices. Samsung hedges Apple, Google
Linux has become the prevalent operating system choice for new real-time platforms; however, standard Linux is designed for overall throughput rather than for real time, and consequently needs to be modified or extended to meet high demands on both latency and determinism.
Get To Market Faster with USB 3.0 Connectivity
Embedded HPEC systems are following the commercial HPC trend towards Intel x86 architectures running Linux, but deployed on VITA's rugged OpenVPX form factor with RapidIO interconnect fabrics.
To achieve full multicore entitlement, SoCs require a hardware infrastructure without bottlenecks, as well as a simplified software infrastructure. The advent of high-speed cellular

This 5 minute tour introduces the new features in ARM DS-5 version 5.14 including ARM big.LITTLE processing support, improved compiler, multi-core debugger and trace synchronization, power and temperature monitoring and much more...
This video walks you through the functionality of the newest feature of ARM Streamline - chart configuration.
ARM-based platforms come in a range of processor configurations, and these platforms often have more than one ARM processor. Traditionally these have been Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) systems, where a cluster of identical CPUs work together co-operatively.
This six minute video guides you through debugging a sample Linux kernel using the DS-5 Debugger, a DSTREAM unit and a BeagleBoard

Teodor Bobirnila, Product Manager for Wind River Mobile Linux Testing Solutions, provides an overview of key features for Wind River FAST for Android version 1.6, an automated software testing solution for Android-based devices.
So you have created your ARM targeted Linux application but, now you need to debug or add features to it. This tutorial demonstrates the ease of importing an existing Linux project into ARM’s Eclipse based DS-5 environment. See this and more at www.youtube.com/armflix.
Featured White Papers
This white paper gives the reader perspectives on requirements for and the position of real-time capabilities in Linux-based embedded systems. It examines multiple paths to reaching real-time responsiveness with the open source OS, and details key native Linux technologies and their evolution. Finally, it presents empirically-derived performance benchmarks for some of the most popular and widely-deployed embedded CPUs.
Linux Kernel Development; How Fast it is Going, Who is Doing It, What They are Doing, and Who is Sponsoring It
The kernel which forms the core of the Linux system is the result of one of the largest cooperative software projects. Regular 2-3 month releases deliver stable updates to Linux users, each with significant new features, added device support, and improved performance. The rate of change in the kernel is high and increasing, with approximately 10,000 patches going into each recent kernel release, each containing the work of over 1000 developers representing around 200 corporations.
Communications networks are very different from other kinds of computing applications. Networks require both very high reliability and very high performance. Not only must they process large volumes of data at high speed, but they must do so while limiting their downtime to minutes per year. Network failures can have huge economic consequences and can even result in the loss of life. Additionally, in this post-9/11 world, failure also has a national security dimension. One example is enough to illustrate the potential impact network failures can have. In 1991, a packet-switched network failed. This failure caused hundreds of millions of dollars in financial losses, knocked out air traffic control in the New York City region for over 8 hours, and disrupted 85,000 travelers.
