LVC21-222: A networking chip at the heart of an Arm-on-Arm workstation?

Session Abstract

Both Daniel and Ilias both long been interested in the quest for an affordable 64-bit Arm workstation capable of handling lots of RAM and storage. Daniel has even taken to the stage at previous Linaro events to discuss his dogfooding experiences. Following the time honoured traditions of previous Arm-on-Arm enthusiasts, both these developers have adopted a new board to be the heart of their "daily driver" workstations. The board in question is a Honeycomb LX2K from Solidrun, a mini ITX board built around a surprisingly powerful NXP networking and communications chip. Did they learn anything new this time around?
