Run Google Chrome on Raspberry Pi

Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers all over the world. And Raspberry Pi is the most popular mini-PC device. But unfortunately, they can’t meet together –  there is no Chrome build for Raspberry Pi (and for any other ARM-based PC except Chromebook). You can use a number of other...

Android Apps on Linux PCs: Now Anbox Tool Runs Smartphone Software Natively

A new open-source project, Anbox, from a Canonical engineer lets you run Android apps natively on Ubuntu and other Linux-powered desktops. It differs from several existing projects that allow Android apps to run on PCs. Instead of using emulators, Anbox employs Linux namespaces to run Android in a...

Daniele Alessandrelli
Intel software engineer Daniele Alessandrelli detailed the inner workings of the Intel Quark Microcontroller Bootloader and described some added security extensions at the Embedded Linux Conference.

Building a Secure Bootloader for the Intel Quark Microcontrollers D2000 and SE C1000

Years after Intel released the low-power, Linux-compatible Quark X1000 processor, which runs on the Intel Galileo and numerous IoT gateways, the chipmaker last year launched three microcontroller-like Quarks that do not run Linux. Like the original Quarks, the Quark D1000 is limited to Pentium ISA...

Attack of the Killer Microseconds

The computer systems we use today make it easy for programmers to mitigate event latencies in the nanosecond and millisecond time scales (such as DRAM accesses at tens or hundreds of nanoseconds and disk I/Os at a few milliseconds) but significantly lack support for microsecond (μs)-scale events....

SparkFun blocks
SparkFun Blocks let you quickly add functionality to your Intel Edison board.

Interact with the Intel Edison Using SparkFun Blocks

In the previous article, I looked at the Intel Edison -- how fast it was, and how much power it needed. This time, I will show how to start getting the Edison board to interact with surrounding electronics with the help of SparkFun Blocks (Figure 1). edison-blocks2.jpg Figure 1:...
