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 modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
