  • Xilinx launches UltraScale+ based SOM and $199 dev kit with AI extensions

    Xilinx has launched a “Kria K26 SOM” that runs Linux on its Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, plus a $199 “Kria KV260 Vision AI” kit with GbE, HDMI, DP, PMOD, CSI, 2x IAS, and 4x USB 3.0. Xilinx is supporting the products with a new edge AI app store.

    For years, third party vendors have been developing compute modules and SBCs built around Xilinx’s Arm/FPGA hybrid Zynq 7000 and quad -A53 Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC system-on-chips, most recently including Topc Embedded’s UltraScale+ based Miami MPSoC Plus module and Florida Plus kit. Xilinx itself has limited its homegrown hardware support to high-end evaluation kits, such as its $11,995 Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZCU216 Evaluation Kit. Now, for the first time Xilinx has launched its own compute module line, called Kria, as well as a $199 dev kit.


    The SoC and module will soon be certified for Ubuntu, which is a first for the Zynq products (see farther below).

  • 5 Great Raspberry Pi IDEs For Programmers and Students

    Raspberry Pi is one of the popular choices for single-board computers (SBCs). It's available in various models and has a wide range of uses, from creating a wireless network printer to hosting a Minecraft server.

    However, the idea that drove the development of the Raspberry Pi originally was to promote the teaching of computer science fundamentals in schools and developing countries while also making it accessible to everyone.

    It's this democratization of Pi that ultimately laid its foundation as a device that's now widely used by many to learn about concepts of computers, electronics, and other hardware verticals.

  • Ubuntu certified system runs on AMD R1000 as low as 6W

    DFI unveiled an “EC90A-GH” industrial mini-PC built around its Ryzen R1000 based GHF51 SBC. These are among the first products to support the 6W R1102G and the first industrial systems to offer certified Ubuntu Core OTA updates.

    DFI has announced a fanless, 110 x 80 x 60mm embedded system called the EC90A-GH built around its GHF51 SBC. Both the EC90A-GH and GHF51 SBC run Ubuntu, Ubuntu Core, or Win 10 IoT Enterprise on AMD’s Ryzen Embedded R1000 and are part of DFI’s compact “Industrial Pi” family of embedded products. They are also among the first products to support the two low-power R1000 parts with TDPs as low as 6W.

  • 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.
