Pico-ITX board runs Linux on an i.MX8M Mini

Filed under
Linux

iWave’s “iW-RainboW-G34D” is a Pico-ITX dev kit with 5.5-inch display and a CSI cam that runs Linux on an i.MX8M Mini via its “iW-RainboW-G34M-SM” module. The kit supports NXP’s eIQ ML software for image recognition.

iWave Systems has launched a Pico-ITX form-factor development kit based around an unnamed NXP i.MX8M Mini based module that appears to be its SODIMM-style iW-RainboW-G34M-SM. iWave announced the new kit under the name i.MX8M Mini Board and linked to a product page headlined iW-RainboW-G34D.

The kit was announced in a blog post about an iWave demo that uses the kit for a facial recognition system for building entry. The demo relies on NXP’s eIQ machine learning software, which runs directly on i.MX8 processors without using an NPU (see farther below).

Squeezing Extra Performance Out Of The Intel Core i9 10900K With Clear Linux

Besides disabling CPU security mitigations (not recommended if security is of importance), for those wanting to squeeze extra performance out of Intel CPUs like Comet Lake with the Core i9 10900K, loading Intel's performance-optimized Clear Linux is one such way. Here is a look at the current performance that can be gained out of using the latest rolling-release Clear Linux on the i9-10900K in comparison to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. While Intel's Clear Linux team is investing less in the desktop to focus on cloud and server workloads, the distribution does continue maintaining its desktop ISO and more or less will still work fine on desktop systems like with the new Comet Lake S-Series. Just expect a more vanilla GNOME Shell experience with less customizations and focus on desktop packages/bundles. Read more
