The goal of a system-on-a-chip (SoC) is to provide a single-chip system, and therefore SoC resource analysis and sizing is critical
. Failure to properly size processing, memory, or I/O needed by software services can kill an SoC project. But all too often, SoC design analysis focuses on processing at the expense of memory or I/O sizing. Any mis-sizing or mismanagement of memory and I/O on an SoC can at the least cause significant project delay and rework.
Judging from comments made at last week's 3GSM World Congress (see below for Linux-related 3GSM stories), the future of Linux and other open source operating systems as a core cell phone platform are bright, but also filled with challenges.
Two entries made the cut in the first phase of the Electronic Frontier Foundation's (EFF) Tor GUI competition. The user interface designed by the CMU Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory took the "Best Overall" award, and the entry from April3rd scored the "Most Aesthetically Pleasing" award.
Why not take the Domain Name System (DNS), which is used primarily on the Internet, and implement it in mobile phones. It turns out that its not that crazy of an idea after all.

A common practice among embedded Linux developers almost certainly violates the Linux license, according to research conducted by software attorneys Jay Michaelson and Christopher Holst. Wasabi Systems Inc., a leading provider of embedded operating systems, today released a white paper entitled Closed-Source Loadable Kernel Modules Violate the GPL, which is the second in a series of white papers focusing on the myths and facts about open source licensing.
Complete Hardware/Software platform with no open-source experience required
"At this time, Microsoft may not be sleeping, but then again it may be. If nothing else, it is distracted and we have a chance to gain some advantage here. Microsoft finds itself in quandary and a series of legal distractions."

A joint effort by WorldVistA and Windows-to-Linux developer firm CodeWeavers will bring a component of the VistA health records application to Linux systems.
Electronic record-keeping helps physicians and other healthcare professionals keep patient records as timely as possible. The fewer surprises involved in trying to diagnose and treat a patient, the better.
Q: What does StreamServe do?
A: When you get bills from companies, have you ever wondered why they're so ugly? You have no idea what it's for, but you owe them $345. The information that goes onto these invoices or statements comes from five or six different places. We take that information and consolidate it and condense it.
You don't want to get an invoice in the mail from Bank of America. Why can't they send me a (text) message with my balance? Those kind of things are really becoming prevalent in Europe. In Scandinavia, nobody writes checks. They look at us like we're a bunch of whack jobs over here because we still write paper checks. They trust each other. Here, nobody trusts anybody. We could learn from some of that.
