Your ACTIS Computer Team



ACTIS Computer is now supporting the U-Boot bootloader and the Linux kernel 3+ release as the standard software configuration on all its Single Board Computer solutions.

Open source embedded software offers an industry-standard environment for all applications.

The Linux BSP is based on an optimized version dedicated to the embedded PowerPC platforms and includes the latest features introduced by the version 3. The interface between U-Boot and the Linux kernel is accomplished through the Flat Device Tree (FDT) mechanism describing the platform hardware resources.

The U-Boot software is widely used by the industry as the bootloader utility for most embedded processor architecture including the PowerPC. U-Boot includes an extensive set of utilities supporting a large range of hardware drivers including network interface, SATA drive management, PCI and PCI Express bus, NOR and NAND Flash control, thermal sensor, I2C bus handling, etc.
