[News] Another New Embedded Linux Event and Hackable Gadget

Hash: SHA1

Embedded Linux Training Event to be Held on May 6 - 8 in Maynard Massachusetts


Arduino hardware hacking: Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Arduino is cool. It's cool because it's a tiny device - about three inches by 
| two inches - that comes with a USB port and a programmable chip. It's cool 
| because you can program it using a very simple programming language known as 
| Wiring.   
| [...]
| The Arduino programming IDE is available under the GPL for Mac OS X, Windows 
| and, of course, Linux, so the only things standing between you and your own 
| pet hardware project are an Arduino board, a cool idea, and of course a Box 
| O' Tricks - some neat little parts you can plug into the Arduino to make it 
| do more interesting things.    



Linux still top embedded OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In a new whitepaper on Linux in the embedded market, VDC researchers cite the
| following reasons for Linux's popularity:
|     * Licensing cost advantages
|     * Flexibility of source code access
|     * General familiarity
|     * Maturing ecosystem of applications and tools
|     * Growing developer experience with Linux as an embedded OS


Embedded Linux research report ships

| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.
| [...]
| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
