Smartphone hardware modules Google Project Ara is being shown by Linaro CEO George Grey, as the modifications to Linux on ARM to support Project Ara are being developed and optimized together with Linaro engineers, many of the Google Project Ara engineers meet at the Linaro Connect conference to advance their development for the project. Linaro is one of many companies working for Google on Project Ara, focused on the firmware and on the software to make Android work with removable modules, to communicate through the UniPro bus for hardware modules. Linaro has a lot of experts in Linux and the Linux kernel, able to deliver what Google needs for this project.
Build on the most effective devolopment board
If you’re enthusiastic to create and raring to go… hang on a moment. There’s something you should do first – pick out a development board. A number of the electronics projects created in the maker movement are built on a development board and picking the right one could be a challenging task, specially when you’re having their first go the subject and have no idea of what the board does. Basically, a development board is a circuit card or a mini computer that gets your electronics project up and going.
There are several sorts of development boards out there – from microcontroller-based boards to System on Chip (SOC) to single-board computers (SBC) to purpose-built boards with Bluetooth and WiFi.
Don’t fry your brain cells just yet, this could be made simple.
KakiDIY creator Johnson Lam states that the Raspberry Pi and Arduino are the recommended development boards by the makers in Malaysia. There’s a lot of versions of these boards – both at first designed as teaching tools – and the price tags range. They are available on the net and at computer merchants.
