O’Reilly OSCON 2016, the long-anticipated Open Source convention, is upon us, and it looks like Canonical is there to showcase its latest Snappy Ubuntu Core innovations.
We reported last week that Canonical had been secretly working with Huawei and LeMaker to offer developers and IoT enthusiasts the first-ever binary image of Snappy Ubuntu Core, a special flavor of the popular Ubuntu operating system that was designed from the ground up to be deployed on various embedded and IoT devices, for LeMaker’s HiKey 96Boards.
Boasting an Octa-Core 64-bit Kirin620 processor designed by Huawei, the HiKey single-board computer features an ARM Mali 450-MP4 graphics processing unit capable of offering high-performance 3D graphics. Also, HiKey developer LeMaker says that the board is able to deliver up to 10,000 Dhrystone VAX MIPS total performance.
OSCON 2016 is taking place these days in Austin, USA, between May 16 and 19.
