The first Russian motherboard based on ARM-processor Baikal-M

It became known about the beginning of production of the first Russian motherboard, the basis for which was the Baikal-M domestically developed russian processor. It was the result of joint activities of the Russian companies Edelweiss, which develops electronics, Basalt SPO, which creates Alt operating systems, and Baikal Electronics, which develops single-chip systems based on MIPS and ARM architectures.

The developers note that computers equipped with a new motherboard and a Russian operating system will expand the capabilities of organizations in the direction of forming a technologically independent IT infrastructure. Computers with the new motherboard will be shipped with Alt Workstation and Alt Education. The compatibility of software platforms with processors has been verified in a series of tests.

As for the motherboard itself, it is made in the Mini-ITX form factor and is intended for the production of workstations, personal computers and thin clients. It is based on the Baikal-M single-chip system, manufactured in accordance with the 28 nm process technology. It contains eight 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57 cores (ARMv8-A; four clusters of two cores) that can operate at speeds up to 1.5 GHz. An eight-core Mali-T628 processor is responsible for graphics processing, which operates at a frequency of up to 700 MHz. The power consumption of the GPU does not exceed 30W.

It is noted that the motherboard was created in a short time by the efforts of Edelweiss engineers, thanks to which the company expects to take a leading position among the developers of similar solutions based on the Baikal-M processor. The motherboard is manufactured by the Moscow-based Ramtronica company. It is also known that the board fully meets the criteria that apply to domestic equipment. As for the cost of the new item, it was not announced.
