Axis Systems, Inc. announced that its Xcite, Xtreme and Xsim hardware acceleration and emulation systems now are available for Linux. Utilized by developers of complex electronic systems and system-on-a-chip designs, Xsim, Xcite and Xtreme allow designers to test and debug using a single system and database, thereby shortening the verification cycle. Xcite, Xtreme and Xsim together provide software simulation, accelerated simulation, system emulation and hardware/software co-verification for behavioral, RTL and gate-level designs with a runtime performance of up to 500k cycles per second.
The Little Board 700 is a single-board computer (SBC) from Ampro Computers, Inc., designed for demanding, power-sensitive embedded applications. The Little Board 700 is an embedded SBC using the EBX form factor (5.75“ × 8”). It is available with a variety of low-voltage processors: Pentium III with 512KB Cache at 933MHz, Celeron at 650MHz or Celeron at 400MHz. It supports up to 1GB DRAM and includes thermal monitoring and power management functions. An onboard Type II CompactFlash socket supports up to 1GB of Flash memory, accessed as an IDE hard disk drive. Onboard peripherals include dual 10/100BaseT Ethernet controllers, an AGP 4× video controller with flat-panel support, AC97 sound, two USB ports, four full-modem serial ports and a PC/104-Plus bus.
Mini-Box is an x86 computing platform designed for embedded or general-purpose computing applications. Mini-Box is based on a VIA Mini-ITX motherboard and runs at 12V, making it suitable for applications where small form factor, low power consumption and reduced noise levels are necessary. Additionally, Mini-Boxes are equipped with LCD displays and a customizable 14-key keypad that replaces keyboards or mice. Weighing two pounds each, standard Mini Boxes come with 256MB of PC133 RAM, 64MB of CompactFlash and an 800MHz x86 VIA C3 processor. Options include a 533MHz fanless processor, 128MB of CompactFlash and a 40GB 2.5“ IBM drive. Mini-Box runs a small embedded Linux OS or a full standard distribution.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
