Sandwich-style SBC runs Linux on i.MX8M Mini

Boardcon has launched a “EM-IMX8M-MINI” SBC built around a “SOM-IMX8M-MINI” module that runs Linux on a quad -A53 i.MX8M Mini with 2GB LPDDR4, 8GB eMMC, and WiFi/BT. The SBC adds MIPI-DSI/CSI, GbE, USB, serial, CAN, and M.2. Boardcon has produced a lot of Samsung and Rockchip based embedded boards, such as its recent, Rockchip RK3399 based CM3399 module and Idea3399 SBC, but the EM-IMX8M-MINI SBC and its SOM-IMX8M-MINI module are its first i.MX8 family boards. The i.MX8M Mini based EM-IMX8M-MINI, which like the Idea3399 is a sandwich-style, COM-and-carrier product, follows earlier NXP-based SBCs that we missed including the i.MX7-based EINK-IMX7 and i.MX6 UL powered EM6ul. We did cover its earlier i.MX287-based MINI287 module. Read more

  • Woolen adventure game Woven is out today, some thoughts on my adventure

The developers said it's like "platform, point-and-click and action-adventure games without being exactly like any of them". To me though, it felt a lot simpler than that, more like a walking sim with basic puzzle elements.

  • Amusing action game Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II adds AI bot support

    The biggest problem for a lot of multiplayer games, even when they're free is pulling in players. To help with that, Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II now supports playing with AI bots. In the latest update released this month, it adds in bot support for when playing both offline and online. Now servers can fill up with bots and be replaced by players so you're not waiting around for anyone to join. There's also new achievements to do with the bots too, based on how many bot kills you get and one for if a bot manages to dominate you in the game.
