Inforce Insights March 2017: Vol.3 Issue 2 – Inforce Computing Newsletter

As we finish our first quarter of the year, we are happy to share insights on all the new products, hardware, and software updates since our last newsletter in January with even more on the horizon. In this newsletter, we share details about enabling RTC on your Inforce platform and how to roll your own Linux build system with Open Embedded.  Lastly, we bring you all the way to Germany where we share our experience partnering with Qualcomm, Basler, and Arrow at Embedded World 2017.

Warm wishes from the Inforce Team! Continue reading Inforce Insights March 2017: Vol.3 Issue 2 – Inforce Computing Newsletter

Inforce Insights January 2017: Vol.3 Issue 1 – Inforce Computing Newsletter

Another fruitful year goes by and we usher in this New Year wishing health, happiness, and success to everyone! We are happy to present our first newsletter of the year! In this issue, we share details on booting up our SBC running Linux entirely from an SD card. Continuing our trust with digital content protection which we had illustrated elaborately through Widevine DRM in our previous newsletter, we now provide a technical article on securing the boot process on our platforms. We hope you enjoy reading our content as much as we love creating it!

Inforce Insights July 2016: Vol.2 Issue 4–the Newsletter of Inforce Computing

Can you believe we’re already into the 2H of 2016?! Hope our US readers have had a great 4th of July weekend, while everyone out there is also enjoying the full tilt of summer. Welcome to Inforce Computing’s July 2016 Newsletter! In this issue of Inforce Insights, we’d like to share a couple of technical notes [thermal management methods for Inforce’s SBCs & SOMs and running Debian Linux on the Inforce 6309 Micro SBC platform], an article on emerging IoT solutions in the burgeoning asset tracking space, and an interesting customer case study on video collaboration (scroll down). In the June newsletter, we shared the news about NASA’s Astrobee embedding two of Inforce’s compute platforms in their next-gen free-flying robot—did we also mention that the Inforce 6501 Micro SOM beat five other vendor products in a bakeoff? If you missed that part, you can read the benchmarking study here and find out why.

Inforce Insights July 2016

Have a great rest of the summer. Stay safe, cool, and hydrated, and please do share your stories of building great embedded IoT products with us at marketing@inforcecomputing.com!

Inforce Insights Newsletter on buliding Embedded Products

Welcome to Inforce Computing’s June 2016 Newsletter! In this issue of Inforce Insights, we’d like to share a couple of useful technical application notes and two exciting customer case studies (scroll down). What does enabling 3D printing, computer vision, video analytics, and space-bound free-flying robots have in common? All of these are powered by advanced Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor-based Inforce Computing platforms [SOMs and SBCs]. Moreover, Inforce’s value added software and hardware design assistance services have complemented and accelerated product development in these cases.

Software and Product Updates

We’re close to having an upstream kernel Linux BSP release (Linaro 15.10 version) available for the Inforce 6410Plus SBC. Stay tuned for download instructions and release notes for the latest BSP. Once available, please log on to Inforce’s TechWeb and look for the product specific menu under the software tab.

For those that have been eagerly waiting for the Inforce 6601™ Micro SOM, we will be taking pre-orders soon. We thank you for your interest in the latest Inforce 6601 Micro SOM and your patience is much appreciated as we ramp up our manufacturing. In the next few weeks you’ll also be able to read about and download more technical details of the affordable and new Inforce 6301 Micro SOM powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor.

We’d love to hear your feedback about Inforce’s newsletters as well as your stories on building exciting embedded products based on Inforce’s compute platforms. We’re more than glad to share your success story in these columns, so don’t hesitate to write to us at marketing@inforcecomputing.com.

Newsletter from Inforce Computing about Inforce 6601 Micro SOM

Greetings!
We’re excited to share some great news with you. Inforce Computing’s much anticipated, highest performing, and cross-compatible Micro SOM based on the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 embedded processor (APQ8096 SoC) is here! Coming close on the heels of Snapdragon 820 processor-based high-end smartphone announcements at the recent 2016 Mobile World Congress, designers can now leverage the same underlying cutting edge mobile technologies for implementing next-gen embedded systems. The Inforce 6601™ Micro SOM delivers a superior compute platform to enable advanced AR/VR based wearable, computer vision, 4K HEVC video encode/decode, medical imaging, video analytics, and high-end IoT applications, to name a few. Designers can also seamlessly upgrade from legacy Inforce 6401™ and Inforce 6501™ Micro SOM based designs. You can download a datasheet of the Inforce 6601 Micro SOM here and read an informative FAQ here >>>.
