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.
