COM and Pico-ITX dev kit run Linux on dual-core Cortex-A7
iWave has launched a rugged, SODIMM-style COM and Pico-ITX form factor carrier board that run Linux on the Renesas dual-core, Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E SoC.
In January, iWave launched the iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven computer-on-module, built around the dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A15 based Renesas RZ/G1M and RZ/G1N SoCs. Now the company has followed up with a 67.6 x 37mm, SODIMM form factor “iW-RainboW-G22M-SM” COM that runs Linux 3.10.31 on the dual-core Cortex-A7 based RZ/G1E SoC from the same RZ/G series SoCs.
Next week is SIGGRAPH while taking place now in Anaheim, California is the Web3D Conference. From this conference focused around 3D graphics for the web, the glTF 1.0.1 specification was released and more.
In addition to the update to the GL Transmission Format (glTF), they also released an open-source glTF validator. Additionally, they confirmed that the glTF MIME type has been approved by IANA.
While measuring the battery power rate during the course of many benchmarks, it ended up being comparable to the earlier kernels. You can see those load benchmark results and power data via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
Today and tomorrow I'll do a similar idle power comparison on my other notebooks (Haswell era) to see if the results are similar to this Broadwell notebook on Linux 4.7. Have you experienced anything similar with Linux 4.7? Feel free to share your thoughts by commenting on this article in the forums.
The legendary System Shock is being remade thanks to devs Night Dive Studios and a successful Kickstarter campaign. Now it has reached its first stretch goal which will see the game coming to Mac and Linux.
KaOS is proud to present the 2016.07 ISO. The policy is, once a first pacman -Syu becomes a major update, it is time for a new ISO so new users are not faced with a difficult first update. With all the needed rebuilds for the move to GCC 5, most systems will see 70-80% of their install replaced by new packages so a new ISO is more than due.
Malta’s Planning Authority has launched a smart phone application that provide online access to planning applications and can be used to report planning irregularities. The software should make zoning and planning more accessible to citizens and companies, and reduce bureaucracy.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute has published a collection of standards for electronic signatures, electronic seals, electronic time-stamps, and for trust services providers.
