  • Geniatech DB1126 development board features RV1126 SoC for AI applications

    Since the release of Rockchip RV1126 SoC, we have covered the detailed specifications on the chip and the RV1126-based Firefly dual-lens AI camera module. To take advantage of hybrid MCU cores from ARM and RISC-V, Geniatech has announced the DB1126 development board, a new addition to their long list of ARM Embedded developer boards designed to tackle any task requiring artificial intelligence.

    [...]

    As of now, there is no information on how to get started, but the board will support Linux, and we are expecting the documentation to be released soon. The company also adds that they will provide SDK secondary development for all the customers to meet their requirements. With the customization feature of optional hardware setup that involves CPU, memory, storage, etc., it is perfect for the hobbyist to want to explore the board’s capabilities.

  • Rapidly configure SD cards for your Raspberry Pi cluster

    There are many reasons people want to create computer clusters using the Raspberry Pi, including that they have full control over their platform, they're able to use an inexpensive, highly usable platform, and get the opportunity to learn about cluster computing in general.

    There are different methods for setting up a cluster, such as headless, network booting, and booting from SD cards. Each method has advantages and disadvantages, but the latter method is most familiar to users who have worked with a single Pi. Most cluster setups involve many complex steps that require a significant amount of time because they are executed on an individual Pi. Even starting is non-trivial, as you need to set up a network to access them.

  • Compact DIN-rail mounted fanless in-vehicle IoT gateway now available

    Impulse Embedded now offers the UST210-83K-FL, a new compact DIN-rail fanless in-vehicle Box-PC powered by the Intel Atom x5-E3940 processor (codename: Apollo Lake-I). The device has been especially created for in-vehicle applications such as vehicle controls, fleet monitoring, management systems and in-vehicle edge computing and is compatible with Windows10 and Linux Ubuntu 18.04.

    This flexible in-vehicle IoT gateway offers secure bi-directional communications and is directed at many vehicle-based applications, including police cars, ambulances, public transport and shuttle buses, commercial vehicles and heavy-duty trucks. The device is cost-effective, and its fanless design eliminates acoustic noise while improving reliability.

  • Axiomtek’s Compact Fanless Embedded System Features Intel Processors

    Axiomtek has announced eBOX560-52R-FL, which is a palm-size fanless embedded system featuring Intel Core and Celeron Whiskey Lake-U processors. We also saw ICP Germany’s fanless Linux embedded system featuring NXP i.MX 8M processor. This device was dedicated to IoT gateways and data acquisition applications. In contrast, the eBOX560-52R-FL fanless embedded system is for more diverse use cases including machine and logistics automation, station gate controls, and ticket vending machines.

  • Station P2 Arm mini PC offers dual GbE, M.2 & SATA SSD, up to 8GB RAM (Crowdfunding)

    Last week, we noted Firefly launched the first RK3568 system-on-module with Core-3568J AI Core and a corresponding full-featured development kit. But the company has been working on another interesting Rockchip RK3568 based device with Station P2 mini PC.

    Most Arm mini PCs need to make compromises when it comes to interfaces having to rely on USB bridges, but Station P2 feels very much like standard x86 based mini PC, albeit with a slower processor, thanks to native interfaces, or implemented through PCIe, with M.2 and SATA 3.0 SSD/HDD, dual Gigabit Ethernet, as well as WiFi 6, several USB 3.0/2.0 ports, and support for up to 8GB RAM among other features.

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.
