Rugged 3.5-inch SBC runs Linux or Android on i.MX6

Logic Supply has introduced a “ICM-3011” 3.5-inch board with a dual-core i.MX6, wide-range power input, and extended temperature support. Like the recent Pico-ITX form factor ICM-2010 SBC that’s also available in an ICS-2010 mini-PC, the ICM-3011 was built by Taipei-based Embux, and is being distributed and supported by Logic Supply. Like the ICM-2010, the $253 ICM-3011 runs on the 1GHz, dual-core DualLite version of NXP’s Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 SoC. It similarly is supported by images for Android 5.0.2 “Lollipop,” Yocto “Daisy” Linux 1.6.2, or Ubuntu Linux 12.04. Read more

Raspberry Pi Foundation's Code Club teaches kids skills to compete in our digital world

For some time, the UK's technology sector has been concerned about finding the right skilled workers to fill jobs in the future. This predicted "digital skills gap" warns that unless we help people to become confident with technology now, we will be facing a huge shortage in skilled workers in the future. One way to overcome the digital skills gap is to invest in training and education for the next generation. Code Club is a network of free coding clubs for primary school students, and all of the projects we work on are open source. There are over 4,500 Code Clubs currently in the UK, reaching an estimated 75,000 children. Read more

The long-awaited Maru OS source release

Hey guys, I'm happy to announce that Maru has been fully open-sourced under The Maru OS Project! There are many reasons that led me to open-source Maru (https://blog.maruos.com/2016/02/11/maru-is-open-source/), but a particularly important one is expanding Maru's device support with the help of the community. If you'd like to help out with a device port (even just offering to test a new build helps a lot), let the community know on the device port planning list (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/maru-os-dev/YufKu...) . We currently have a few Nexus, LG, and Motorola builds being planned. If you don't see your device on there and would like to help with development or testing, please do chip in and we'll get it added to the list. Read more
