candleLight FD - Open Hardware USB-to-CAN-FD interface

This week Linux Automation has released a CAN-FD version of the low-cost USB-to-CAN interface candleLight: the candleLight FD. And as the candleLight the candleLight FD is Open Hardware. Check the KiCad project on Github.

LXA USB-T1L ❤️ Beagle Play: Exploring Single Wire Ethernet

It seems everybody is talking about Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) these days. So we want to follow the trend and do the same :-) SPE is a class of Ethernet transmission standards that uses just a single pair of twisted pair cable for data transmission. There are multiple SPE variants spanning maximum data rates from a hand full MBit/s to multiple GBit/s and cable lengths from a hand full of meters to kilometers. The most interesting ones from our embedded-centric point of view are 10Base-T1L (point-to-point, up to 1 km), 10Base-T1S (multidrop, approx. 10 m) and 100Base-T1 (point-to-point, 15 m). The new Beagle Play comes with a 10Base-T1L PHY. This makes it a great peer to experiment with our Linux Automation USB-T1L. In this post we will explore the possibilities of 10Base-T1L on a recent Linux system.

Showcase: Embedded off-the-shelf

Ein Firmware-Upgrade ist fällig. Eine neu implementierte Funktion muss ausgerollt, eine Sicherheitslücke gepatcht oder neue Hardware-Unterstützung hinzugefügt werden. Die Software ist zwar leistungsfähig, aber komplex. Pengutronix' Strategie, mit dieser Komplexität umzugehen, ist die Arbeit an einem versionskontrollierten Board Support Package (BSP) mit kontinuierlichen Updates und Tests auf dem neuesten Mainline-Linux-Kernel.

USB-SD-Mux: Automated SD-Card Juggler

Once the bootloader on your embedded device is up and running the development of kernel and userland in PTXdist-based BSPs is usually based on booting from network. Thus there is no need for the developer to write the boot media with a new image.
