Since last 10 years we’ve used so many different processors by Marvell in our custom designs. Now it’s time to reveal something to public. This small board is not a cutting edge quad-core stuff (but of course we can design such pcbs) but rather a proven pcb board designed around Marvell Armada 300/310 which is 800MHz/1.6GHz ARMv5 compliant processor targeted at low-cost networked applications. To shorten your product launch cycle we offer pcb customization as well as our experience in u-boot, Linux drivers and system-level embedded software development for Marvell processors. Marvell ARMADA PCB board description is available here.
I was attending Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE-2011) on 26-28Oct in Prague, Czech Republic.
It’s good combination of perfect Czech beer and a nice event which attracted Linux developers, well-known in open source community.
Co-located with LinuxCon Europe conference under LinuxFoundation patronage, ELCE-2011 ran in three parallel sections. I managed to attend the following presentations:
