ISRAEL - January 3, 2013: SolidRun Ltd has officially announced a new model CuBox. The popular, open source miniature computer platform now packs twice the memory into a sleek, slim package. Still just a mere 2 inches cubed and weighing 91 grams (3.2oz), the new CuBox Pro boasts a full 2GB of DDR3 RAM, wrapped in a re-designed body.
This upgrade means the CuBox Pro is the first - and so far only - ARM-based open source development platform that supports 2GB of DDR3 memory.
As you also may know, an American court has found that hard drive control chips made by Marvell Semiconductors infringe on two patents owned by Carnegie Mellon University. The federal court trial saw a nine-person jury uphold that Marvell should pay US$1.169 billion in damages.
In response to consumer concern, SolidRun founder and CEO Kossay Omary has released the following statement:
We await update from Marvell about how this will affect their business.
We do not believe this will impact Marvell's ability to supply their devices to us and to support us on technical issues - we do not think this lawsuit has any connection with the Armada510 or the other Marvell devices we purchase from them.
We will keep you updated as the situation progresses. In the meantime, enjoy your CuBox!
