Networking appliance taps Freescale's QorIQ processor

,----[ Quote ]
| The CAK-2000 supports Linux, and is 
| available with an optional copy of 
| Freescale's Vortiqa, a Linux-based software 
| development platform for optimizing 
| firewall, IPSec-VPN, IPS, anti-virus, and 
| anti-spam software for multi-core QorIQ and 
| PowerQUICC SoCs. The network appliance is 
| said to comply with FCC/CE, UL, and 


Conceptronic Grab'n'go CH3MNAS early review: Compact home for your data

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're a really hardcore techie, you'll 
| be able to use the 'Fun Plug' system to 
| install apps on your NAS to add 
| functionality. Be warned though, this isn't 
| a beginner feature and requires at least 
| some technical understanding of Linux. 


Configurable RISC controller offers Linux-ready MMU

,----[ Quote ]
| Standard controllers for dataplane 
| applications, including one Linux-optimized 
| model. Based on Tensilica's configurable, 
| 32-bit RISC "Xtensa" architecture, the five 
| upward-compatible processor cores include a 
| Diamond Standard 233L processor with a 
| Linux-optimized MMU, and are claimed to be 
| 15 percent faster and more power efficient 
| than earlier models.


ATCA blade cranks it up with six-core Xeon

,----[ Quote ]
| GE Intelligent Platforms announced a Linux-
| ready AdvancedTCA single board computer 
| with an option for Intel's new Xeon 5600 
| processors. The dual-Xeon A10200 offers up 
| to six cores clocked to 2GHz, plus 12MB of 
| L3 cache per CPU, and offers dual 10 
| gigabit Ethernet interfaces and four 
| gigabit Ethernet interfaces, says the 
| company.



Exploring Embedded Linux with Xport Pro

,----[ Quote ]
| This past year I've had the good fortune to
| review an eeePC powered Netbook, the Fit-PC,
| and the Plug Computer. All were new, capable,
| and progressively smaller Linux machines.
| Readers may also recall my increasing interest
| in the Arduino micro-controllers. Although the
| Arduino doesn't run Linux, its development
| environment is easy to use and particularly
| well suited for Linux notebooks.


Atom-based energy monitoring device taps Moblin

,----[ Quote ]
| At CES, OpenPeak unveiled a prototype of its
| Intel Atom- and Moblin Linux-based Home Energy
| Manager (HEM) energy monitoring device, and
| announced partnerships with Direct Energy and
| GE. OpenPeak also announced that the OpenFrame
| IP phone upon which the HEM is based was
| certified with the ZigBee Alliance's Smart
| Energy Certification.


The Embedded Market Beds Down with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Note that this very positive assessement
| comes not from some open source fanboy (like
| me), but from a semiconductor company that
| has just plunked down $50 million on its
| bet. Against that background, there seems
| little doubt that Linux will soon become the
| de facto standard in the world of embedded
| systems.
