V4L2 co-creator and Linux kernel contributor Laurent Pinchart outlined the early-stage libcamera project at the Embedded Linux Conference in October.

Libcamera Aims to Make Embedded Cameras Easier

The V4L2 (Video for Linux 2) API has long offered an open source alternative to proprietary camera/computer interfaces, but it’s beginning to show its age. At the Embedded Linux Conference Europe in October, the V4L2 project unveiled a successor called libcamera. V4L2 co-creator and prolific Linux...

Linux kernel engineer Grant Likely explained the basics of Embedded Base Boot Requirements (EBBR) at the recent Embedded Linux Conference in Edinburgh.

EBBR Aims to Standardize Embedded Boot Process

Arm’s open source EBBR (Embedded Base Boot Requirements) specification is heading for its v1.0 release in December. Within a year or two, the loosely defined EBBR standard should make it easier for Linux distros to support standardized bootup on major embedded hardware platforms. At the recent...

Paulus Schoutsen originally created Python-based Home Assistant as a simple script to turn on the lights. Learn how it has grown in this presentation from the 2016 Embedded Linux Conference.

Home Assistant: The Python Approach to Home Automation

A number of home automation platforms support Python as an extension, but if you’re a real Python fiend, you’ll probably want Home Assistant, which places the programming language front and center. Paulus Schoutsen created Home Assistant in 2013 “as a simple script to turn on the lights when the...

New Raspberry Pi A+ Board Shrinks RPi 3B+ Features to HAT Dimensions

A HAT-sized, $25, Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ will soon arrive with the same 1.4GHz quad-A53 SoC, dual-band WiFi, and 40-pin GPIO of the RPi 3B+, but with only 512MB RAM, one USB, and no LAN.As promised, Raspberry Pi Trading has revived its old mini-size, four-year old Raspberry Pi Model A+ SBC with a...

Linux IoT Landscape: Distributions

Linux is an Operating System: the program at the heart of controlling a computer. It decides how to partition the available resources (CPU, memory, disk, network) between all of the other programs vying for it. The operating system, while very important, isn’t useful on its own. Its purpose is to...

"This is a good time to port Linux applications to RISC-V,” said Comcast’s Khem Raj at an Embedded Linux Conference Europe presentation last month.

RISC-V Linux Development in Full Swing

Most Linux users have heard about the open source RISC-V ISA and its potential to challenge proprietary Arm and Intel architectures. Most are probably aware that some RISC-V based CPUs, such as SiFive’s 64-bit Freedom U540 found on its HiFive Unleashed board, are designed to run Linux. What may...

Raspberry Pi: Hands-on with Kali, openSUSE, Fedora and Ubuntu MATE Linux

It has been nearly two years since I tried Fedora, Manjaro and Ubuntu MATE on the Raspberry Pi 2 & 3, and there have been a lot of changes since then. Most for the better, such as the introduction of the Pi 3B+, but a few for the worse, such as the end of the Manjaro Pi development. So I think...

Android Pie
The ninth iteration of Android has brought about a far more satisfying user experience; get details from Jack Wallen.

An Overview of Android Pie

Let’s talk about Android for a moment. Yes, I know it’s only Linux by way of a modified kernel, but what isn’t these days? And seeing as how the developers of Android have released what many (including yours truly) believe to be the most significant evolution of the platform to date, there’s plenty...
