PROJECTV UPDATE:

12 February 2018 – PRETORIA – New exciting additions have landed for the Keystone video surveillance platform. ProjectV now harnesses the power of the Kurento Media Server (KMS). The KMS has greatly reduced the hardware requirements for a full video surveillance solution. It opens the door for advanced video applications for both web and smartphones.The framework provides advanced media processing capabilities involving computer vision and speech analysis. In addition to streaming on triggers, we have added scheduling functionality to the platform.   For more information, see: http://www.kses.net/current-solutions/project-v/   About Keystone Electronic Solutions Established in 2007, Keystone Electronic Solutions provides a range of electronic engineering research and development (R&D) services in order to assist customers with product development and preparing the product for the market. www.kses.net   Media enquiries Simone Gair Office: +27 (0) 12 460 4135...

GUINNUX EMBRACES QMI WWAN INTERFACES

4 December 2017 – PRETORIA Updates to the ‘linux-guinnux’ and the ‘gnx-networking’; now allows Guinnux to interface to QMI enabled GSM modems with libqmi. The QMI WWAN capabilities of the kernel provides for a much more familiar networking experience, rather than that of the PPP interfaces. QMI is a packet orientated protocol which serves as a replacement for the traditional PPP + AT command networking.   For more detailed information view: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/…/QMI-(Qualcomm-MSM-Interface)   The QMI WWAN interfaces are more similar to Ethernet interfaces and allows for much more complex networking and routing solutions to be implemented. The updated packages will now automatically detect QMI compatible devices and create the networking profiles for them. In the name of backward compatibility, the current ‘gsm’ PPP network profiles are still kept and the ‘WWAN’ QMI profile is generated alongside it. This gives users the opportunity to make use of either of the technologies.   Guinnux for Beagle Bone Black can be found here: http://wiki.guinnux.org/doku.php?id=bbb:install   About Keystone Electronic Solutions Established in 2007, Keystone Electronic Solutions provides a range of electronic engineering research and development (R&D) services in order to assist customers with product development and preparing the product for the market. www.kses.net   Media enquiries Simone Gair Office: +27 (0) 12 460 4135...

KEYSTONE ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS ANNOUNCES EMBEDDED LINUX SYSTEM GUINNUX IS NOW AVAILABLE AS A RESCUE SYSTEM IMAGE ON BEAGLE BONE BLACK

11 April 2017 – PRETORIA – Keystone Electronic Solutions, a leading South African provider of rich and robust engineering and electronics solutions, today announced that Guinnux – the company’s own Linux-based distribution – is now available as a Guinnux rescue system image on Beagle Bone Black.   The Guinnux rescue file system allows Guinnux to be distributed as a small, versatile image, without necessitating the download of a large SD card image.   As an operating system, Keystone’s Guinnux distribution delivers improved ease of use, enhanced features and robust performance. The distribution is now based on the Arch Linux ARM distribution merged with Keystone components, providing enterprise resilience and capabilities as standard. The rescue file system allows users to recover or re-install a damaged or broken Guinnux installation without the need to re-flash the complete SD card image.   Keystone Electronic Solution’s Guinnux allows for further development of custom solutions on top of the base Guinnux system.  By using the Guinnux build system, developers are able to develop new embedded software in a way similar to proven Linux server application development.   John Eigelaar, Keystone Electronic Solution’s Founder and Guinnux developer, commented, “We ported our own Linux operating system, Guinnux, to the Beagle Bone Black to further demonstrate the versatility of the Guinnux distribution.”   Guinnux for Beagle Bone Black can be found here: http://wiki.guinnux.org/doku.php?id=bbb:install   About Keystone Electronic Solutions Established in 2007, Keystone Electronic Solutions provides a range of electronic engineering research and development (R&D) services in order to assist customers with product development and preparing the product for the market. www.kses.net   Media enquiries Simone Gair Office:...

KEYSTONE ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS ANNOUNCES GUINNUX FOR THE NXP LS1043A RDB

Press release      16 March 2017 – PRETORIA – Keystone Electronic Solutions, a leading South African provider of rich and robust engineering and electronics solutions, today announces the availability of the company’s embedded Linux, “Guinnux” , on the industry leading NXP’s quad-core, 64-bit ARM-based processor for embedded networking and industrial infrastructure solutions.   The QorIQ® LS1043A processor is NXP’s first quad-core, 64-bit ARM®-based processor for embedded networking and industrial infrastructure solutions. The LS1043A Reference Design Board is therefore the perfect platform to port Keystone’s newly released Guinnux for Aarch64 onto. Guinnux unlocks the true networking and protocol handling capabilities of the NXP RDB which serves as a test bed for industrial IoT solutions.   John Eigelaar, Keystone Electronic Solution’s Founder and Guinnux developer, commented, “We had ported Guinnux to the Qemu Aarch64 VM, and wanted to try it on actual hardware.  We specifically chose the NXP platform because it is well-suited for industrial IoT applications. Porting Guinnux to NXP is a true testimony of Guinnux’s versatility when it comes to deployments onto vendor-specific platforms.”   Follow the instructions here to get Guinnux for Aarch64 onto the LS1043A RDB and unleash some Enterprise Embedded Linux over the 4 X Cortex-A53 cores.   About Keystone Electronic Solutions Established in 2007, Keystone Electronic Solutions provides a range of electronic engineering research and development (R&D) services in order to assist customers with product development and preparing the product for the market. www.kses.net   Media enquiries Simone Gair Office: +27 (0) 12 460 4135 simone@kses.net...

KEYSTONE ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS MAKES EMBEDDED LINUX SYSTEM GUINNUX AVAILABLE AS A RPI NOOBS OS IMAGE

Press release Keystone Electronic Solutions makes embedded Linux system Guinnux available as a RPi NOOBS os image   7 February 2017 – PRETORIA – Keystone Electronic Solutions, a leading South African provider of rich and robust engineering and electronics solutions, today announced that Guinnux – the company’s own Linux-based distribution – is now available as a Raspberry Pi NOOBS os image.   Unlike other NOOBS images, Keystone’s version ships with the Guinnux fallback rescue system, which is then used to download and install the base Guinnux packages.
