  • $16 Banana Pi BPI-EAI80 Cortex-M4F Board Embeds AI Accelerator, WiFi Module

    Last April, we wrote about Edgeless EAI-Series dual Arm Cortex-M4 MCU equipped with a 300 GOPS CNN-NPU for AI at the very edge as we had discovered the chip in an upcoming Banana Pi board.

    It turns out Banana Pi BPI-EAI80 development board powered by Edgeless EAI80 AI microcontroller has just launched for $16 on Aliexpress, or you could get a complete kit with a touchscreen display, a camera, and a USB power supply for $80.

  • AMD Is in Advanced Talks to Buy Xilinx

    Advanced Micro Devices Inc. is in advanced talks to buy rival chip maker Xilinx Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, in a deal that could be valued at more than $30 billion and mark the latest big tie-up in the rapidly consolidating semiconductor industry.

  • AMD Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Xilinx

    While AMD is providing great pressure against Intel in the CPU space, it looks like AMD could be soon going up against them in the FPGA space too.

    The latest M&A chip talk is that AMD is reportedly in advanced talks to buy Xilinx. According to the Wall Street Journal, AMD has been looking to court Xilinx for more than $30 billion USD.

  • Building a cheap and easy nanosheet machine

    Chemist Biljana Mojsoska at Roskilde University in Denmark has been working on nanosheets, an anti-bacterial coating for medical surfaces. During her research, a piece of expensive equipment failed, causing Jakub Klust and Bo Thorning at FabLab RUC to attempt to replace the machine with rapid prototyping techniques.

    What they came up with turns sample vials using a servo motor, controlled by an Arduino Uno. Buttons and an encoder form the user interface, with a small display for feedback. Mojsoska’s research involves rotating vials of the coating for days at a time, so the unit must be reliable, and gear reduction on the servo is implemented to prevent excessive vibration throughout the process.

  • Jetson TX2-based platform targets AIoT applications

    Targeting Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) applications, the EC-3200 AI computing platform is based on the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 64-bit processor. This processor pairs a Dual-Core Denver 2 alongside a Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A57 processor to provide 256 CUDA cores on NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU architecture, with up to 1.33 TFLOPS. It features 8 GB LPDDR4 memory, 32 GB eMMC 5.1 on-board storage, a front I/O interface with GbE and two M.2 sockets (M2280 and E3042) to support SSD/WiFi/LTE.

Samsung, Red Hat to Work on Linux Drivers for Future Tech

The metaverse is expected to uproot system design as we know it, and Samsung is one of many hardware vendors re-imagining data center infrastructure in preparation for a parallel 3D world. Samsung is working on new memory technologies that provide faster bandwidth inside hardware for data to travel between CPUs, storage and other computing resources. The company also announced it was partnering with Red Hat to ensure these technologies have Linux compatibility. Read more

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
