Allwinner A23 "Sun8i" Support Gets Cleaned Up For The Linux Kernel
Developers have put out their latest batch of Allwinner patches that allow for basic upstream kernel support of Allwinner's A23 SoC.
The Allwinner A23 SoC is a dual-core Cortex-A7 part that's been out since last year. The A23 isn't impressive by other tier-one ARM SoCs, but it's low-cost and with the A23 System-on-a-Chip they switched from using PowerVR graphics to instead using ARM's Mali with their new designs.
The Linux kernel's support for the A23 is being dubbed "sun8i" and builds upon the A20 and A31 SoC designs. Allwinner Linux fans wanting to learn more about these latest A23 SoC patches -- which will now land in the Linux 3.17 kernel at the earliest -- see the new patch series on the Linux kernel mailing list.
