Re: Is there a management engine in the ARM CPUs?

The 2835 uses an Armv6 core, designed in the UK. The GPU, the Videocore4 was designed in the UK (some subcomponents were designed elsewhere, but mostly UK, and integrated in the UK) The 2836 and 2837 uses the same videocore4 GPU, the ARM cores are off the shelf ARM designs (UK), and again mostly in...

Re: Is there a management engine in the ARM CPUs?

So basically you've already made up your mind and this question wasn't a question but a statement? You're not going to get an official statement from anyone here on the Forums, if you'd like to know, contact the Foundation directly or Broadcom and see what their response is. No, I haven't. That's w...

Re: Is there a management engine in the ARM CPUs?

If the RPi includes such a function, it has never been disclosed to my knowledge. I would tend to doubt it, given the original concept of the RPi was very personal computer for students, not a remotely-managed industrial box. Well, the RPi is a core(s) that Broadcom has had already for other purpos...

Is there a management engine in the ARM CPUs?

I've been wondering if anyone knows whether there is some kind of equivalent of the AMT (Intel's Active Management Technology) 'black box' built into the ARM CPUs, particularly those used in Raspberry Pi - i.e. how secure those CPUs are?

Hi all, I have a prototype box and would like to know if anyone knows of a cheap/easy way of printing, say, a logo on an ABS case? Failing that, can anyone point me in the direction of a company (in the UK) that may be able to print a logo and a few other items (connectors) on a small ABS box? Than...

Re: New to RISC OS? Read this!

Yes - see http://www.riscosopen.org/ There's Unicode support - I think there are some Unicode fonts on the Pi - though it's variable as to which apps support it. NetSurf does, for example. There's a Japanese IME. I'm not sure what the position is with a Czech one (there's a third-party keyboard dri...
