Testing The GPU.
After a lot of hard work, we have managed to get the GPU working for Ubuntu 20.02 and ChromiumOS. Below you can see the spinning cube in full 60fps. The difficulty in getting it running for the various Linux distributions lies in the fact that the proprietary binary release of the GPU driver does not support all versions of the graphic stack framework mesa.
After sweating over a build system to support RISC-V ISA and our board target, we finally saw a RISC-V real-world self-repairing prompt on ChromiumOS!
“Your system is repairing itself, Please wait”. Well…the wait is finally over! Lol.
A New Partner, A New Chip.
On the hardware side, we are very glad to introduce our latest partner Reexen. Reexen is an inference sensing and in-memory computing startup with offices in Shenzhen, Shanghai, Chengdu and Zurich. They develop ultra low-power audio and visual signal processing chips. They have already found great market success with true wireless stereo (TWS) headsets and other wearables. With high-efficiency chips, Reexen is targeting AR/VR/XR, AIoT and autonomous driving applications. You can learn more here.
And you can view our video testing the world’s smallest mass-produced AI speech inference chip made by Reexen!
The Complete Package.
The first draft of our environment friendly packaging design is out. It not only looks very cool, it’s also on deadline! Many thanks to the hard work and great ideas from our designer Pedro.
We are very pleased to announce that Peng Zhu has joined us as ROMA Security Advisor and is already hard at work improving ROMA security defences.
Peng has worked in cybersecurity for many years. Most recently he was part of a Red Team for Internet of Vehicles penetration. One of his most successful hacks was attacking a vehicle manufacturer with APT. He obtained the domain administrator authority allowing control of the network for the entire group, including the subsidiary and first-line production system. We’re glad he’s working on our side now!
