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.

In support of AMD's 64-bit Opteron processor, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, based on UnitedLinux 1.0, now is available. Taking advantage of Opteron's capabilities to handle applications in both 32- and 64-bit environments, Server 8 is a complete server OS for Opteron processors. Server 8 comes with an optimized 2.4.19 kernel (including GCC 3.2.2) that supports high-availability work and high-performance interaction with storage systems by means of asynchronous I/O, multipathing memory access and the management of up to 600 physical hard disks. Server 8 provides scalability for up to 64 processors and up to 512GB of main memory.
APPRO announced the availability of its new HyperBlade Server Cluster, 1U and 2U dual servers based on AMD Opteron processors. The APPRO HyperBlade cluster solution is designed for the high-performance computational (HPC) market. The HyperBlade Server Cluster offers high-density architecture by using commodity x86 components in a single cluster. It supports up to 80 compute blades and up to 160 AMD Opteron processors. The APPRO 1U and 2U dual servers provide high-processor and memory bandwidth performance. They feature dual AMD Opteron processors, simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing capability, HyperTransport technology, PCI-X support, swappable HDDs and up to 16GB of DDR SDRAM.
