"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...

An Introduction to Using Linux on Embedded Single-Board Computers

Most of the more powerful compact form-factor single-board computers (SBCs) run one of the popular Linux distributions designed for use with these embedded boards. While there isn’t a specific version of the Linux kernel for embedded applications, the difference from a PC or desktop device running...

SBC-based clusters
SBC-based clusters built on Raspberry Pi have been around for years. Other open-spec hacker boards, however, can offer higher computer power and faster networking at the same or lower price.

SBC Clusters — Beyond Raspberry Pi

Cluster computers constructed of Raspberry Pi SBCs have been around for years, ranging from supercomputer-like behemoths to simple hobbyist rigs. More recently, we’ve seen cluster designs that use other open-spec hacker boards, many of which offer higher computer power and faster networking at the...

Develop your Linux Apps on This RISC-V Board

The “news” is that Microsemi and SiFive have collaborated on an expansion board that’s based on Microsemi’s RISC-V-based Polarfire FPGAs. The expansion board makes it easier for developers to write Linux-based applications targeting RISC-V using the Mi-V RISC-V ecosystem. RISC-V is a free and open...
