Nokia, Linux, and ARM, oh my!:
Nokia is hinting that it may further crowd the already-packed netbook space by becoming the first phone maker to jump in. If the Finnish maker of stylish smartphones does make a netbook, it could differentiate itself and make a splash by using ARM and mobile Linux.

NVIDIA has announced a $99 hardware platform for MIDs centered around its Tegra 600 series chip, which pairs a small GeForce GPU with an ARM11 core on the same die. Meanwhile, ARM has been talking up the quad-core version of its upcoming Cortex A9 chip, but there’s no guarantee that ARM can make it work with four cores.
ARM is demonstrating the first working example of a multicore processor that may dramatically speed up smartphones. Meanwhile, Apple is looking for iPhone engineers that can write multithreaded code that may take advantage of ARM’s breakthrough.
Again, sorry for the delays. I had some family matters that needed my immediate attention. But now school is back in session and I finally have structure back in my life. I’m still planing to release a video tutorial of serial communication soon. Just as soon as I figure out the best way to do it.
Apologies all around! But I have not forgotten about my darling website! Can a junkie really stay away for long? Anyways, I plan to have new VIDEO tutorials soon!!!
In the mean time, Check out this awesome link on Embedded OSes and the LCP21XX family of devices.
Okay, So I wrote the first lab tutorial. I plan to produce one lab per week. We shall see if I can stay on schedule.
Now I take a dance break. See ya!
The ‘getting started‘ page is up. Your first ARM lab is underway.
This site is just getting up and running. Excuse the construction. More to come soon.
