Cavium engineers are showing the Cavium Octeon TX 24-core 64bit ARMv8 platform handling the IPsec tunnel for future base stations to be used for the 5G backhaul, to increase bandwidth, increase coverage for cellular networks around the world. Filmed at Linaro Connect.
RISC-V Linux port has been accepted into Linus’ tree and is slated to release as part of 4.15. While this is a major milestone for RISC-V, they’re far from done in Linux kernel land and there’s a whole lot of work left to be done in userspace.
RISC-V is an open instruction set architecture (ISA) that began in 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley, based on established reduced instruction set computing (RISC) principles, it can be freely used for any purpose, permitting anyone to design, manufacture and sell RISC-V chips and software.
Poplar is the first development board compliant with the 96Boards Enterprise Edition TV Platform specification. Developed by HiSilicon, the board features the Hi3798C V200 with an integrated quad-core 64bit ARM Cortex A53 processor and high performance Mali-T720 GPU, making it capable of running any commercial set-top solution based on Linux or Android. Its high performance specification also supports a premium user experience with up to H.265 HEVC decoding of 4K video at 60 frames per second. It's available for $79 at Aliexpress.com
