Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Anders Electronics announced a diminutive COM (computer on module) featuring Marvell's 1.2GHz Armada 510 CPU. The Linux-ready CM-A510 offers functionality including 1GB of DDR3 memory, up to 512MB of flash storage, a camera interface, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, and onboard Wi-Fi, the company says.

"Anders' new CM-A510 includes the 1.2GHz Marvell Armada 510 processor, which began sampling about a year ago (and about which background is provided later in this story). The module can run most up-to-date Linux distros or their derivatives, according to the London-based company.

"According to Anders, the CM-A510 measures 2.95 x 2.55 inches (75 x 65mm), and passes all its signals to and from the outside world via twin surface-mount connectors (shown above left). No further details on the device's form factor were provided, but the company says it will offer an SB-A510 carrier board -- again, not yet detailed -- that can turn the module into a single board computer."
