BayLibre goes to Hollywood

BayLibre SAS was founded two years ago at an incubator in Valbonne, France. Today, we are proud to announce the creation of BayLibre, Inc. to help grow our business and better support our customers in the US.

As part of this exciting step for BayLibre we have brought our dear friend Michael Turquette on board to take on the role of CEO and drive vision and strategy at BayLibre.

There is much to be proud of in the past two years at BayLibre and with Mike on board BayLibre 2.0 will be limitless.

BayLibre ACME supported by sigrok

Thanks to Bartosz and Uwe Hermann, libsigrok now supports the BayLibre ACME device.

The ACME (Another Cute Measurement Equipment) is a BeagleBone Black Cape with an I²C-attached Texas Instruments INA226 current/power monitor and an I²C-attached TI TMP435 temperature sensor.

The sensors are supported in mainline Linux. The drivers expose a standard interface via the Linux sysfs pseudo file system, which the libsigrok driver uses.

Bartosz will also present a Sigrok: Adventures in Integrating a Power-Measurement Device talk at the Embedded Linux Conference on March 24, 2015 (schedule) in San Jose, CA.

BayLibre is working on the Project Ara from Google

BayLibre is working in collaboration with LeafLabs, Linaro and Google. The goal is to deliver a customizable and modular lego-like smartphone. The BayLibre expertise in embedded software, Linux kernel drivers and power management is a key contribution to the project.

hands_ara_wide2Project Ara is a development effort to create a modular hardware ecosystem. Put another way, Project Ara aims to enable users to create a modular smartphone that is precisely tailored to their functional and aesthetic preferences.

BayLibre will attend FOSDEM 2015

BayLibre is really excited to attend FOSDEM at Bruxelles for the very first time. The agenda for the Embedded track looks pretty nice. We already registered for the Friday’s talk as well, named “Beer Distribution Algorithm v3.3 (stable)“. That sounds really technical.

BayLibre is hiring, so if you want to meet us, we will be around.

See you there!

BayLibre at ELCE & PLC

BayLibre at Embedded Linux Conference Europe and Linux Plumbers

After the great Kernel Recipes in Paris 2 weeks ago, BayLibre will continue its European tour and will have the pleasure to attend two major events in Düsseldorf, Germany next week (ELCE and LPC).

The whole band will present a demo of our “Made in France” open HW running open source SW.
Later, Patrick will be on stage, playing solo, to present our latest hit : “Leveraging Open-Source Power Measurement Standard Solution“.

See you there and we’ll be happy to share some drinks backstage.

Let there be Linux!

Kernel Recipes 2014

Kernel Recipes 2014 

BayLibre is the proud sponsor of Kernel Recipes which will take place in Paris on the 25th and the 26th of September. This is the first event we are sponsoring and here is why:

Kernel recipes is the last event where kernel hackers from all over the world can meet up free of charge. It is a place for exchange, conferences which is in phase with the original mindset of Linux and the open source community. It’s free, it’s open, the content exchanged is of good quality and it is friendly. To top it all, it takes place in Paris downtown.

Come and share kernel recipes….and a beer 🙂 with us!

Qualcomm is the primary provider of many of the key integrated circuits, and both Invensense and OmniVision are noted for their role in delivering Amazon’s Dynamic Perspective display technology. 

Amazon has undoubtedly invested heavily in software features that are not included in this BOM costing estimate, most notably the software behind the Dynamic Perspective display feature. 

At the heart of the Fire Phone is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800Application and Baseband processor running at 2.2 GHz with 2 GB of LDDR3 RAM; this includes 32 GB of storage, support for LTE (as well as GSM and W-CDMA cellular modes), and WiFi 802.11a/n/ac.
