Coursera course about IoT using the 64bit Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c

Posted by Charbax – January 30, 2016

This Coursera Specialization covers the development of Internet of Things (IoT) products and services—including devices for sensing, actuation, processing, and communication—to help you develop skills and experiences you can employ in designing novel systems. The Specialization has theory and lab sections. In the lab sections you will learn hands-on IoT concepts such as sensing, actuation and communication. In the final Capstone Project, developed in partnership with Qualcomm, you’ll apply the skills you learned on a project of your choice using the DragonBoard 410c platform.

Microsoft Playready DRM integrated with OPTEE, Linaro Digital Home Group

Posted by Charbax – January 30, 2016

The Linaro Digital Home Group (LHG) has achieved a milestone in the delivery of an open source reference solution for the consumption of premium content on ARM powered devices.

The media solution ulitizes several open source components coupled with a commercial DRM that executes in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). The TEE used is the Open Portable TEE (OPTEE) from Linaro, running on ARM TrustZone.

The solution integrates the following key components:
- W3C EME Working Draft (31 March 2015)
- Microsoft PlayReady DRM Porting Kit v3.0
- OP-TEE
- OpenCDM/OpenCDMi
- Chromium v43

The solution is powered by a STMicroelectronics STiH410 ARM Cortex-A9 processor.
