The newest small-form-factor, rugged single-board computer from ADLINK is the Ampro CoreModule 745. This stackable PC/104-Plus SBC allows OEMs in military, avionics, transportation and other rugged markets to add a state-of-the-art Intel architecture controller to their systems without the need for a custom carrier board. The module supports a range of Intel Atom processors, from the power-efficient N450 running at 1.66GHz to the performance-oriented dual-core D510. The Atom's two-chip solution architecture with integrated memory and graphics controllers permit excellent performance with very low power requirements. With a TDP as low as 9W, the CoreModule 745 simplifies cooling requirements and enables conduction-cooled solutions for small sealed enclosures in space-constrained applications.
Could the longtime cult-favorite browser Opera finally make the big time with its new version 11? The company says that Opera 11 is big—a browser that, besides adding a layer of polish to features users have known and loved for a decade, will “change everything you know about browsing”. The key new features include tab stacking, numerous new extensions and visual mouse gestures. Tab stacking is a novel way to organize open tabs. Extensions personalize the browser and add functionality. Visual mouse gestures allow browsing commands via a flick of the wrist. Opera 11, with its 30% smaller footprint, is available for download on Linux, Mac OS and Windows platforms.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
