Feb 24, 2000, 19:47 (0 Talkback[s])

"National Semiconductor announced that it has licensed Citrix's Independent Computing Architecture (ICA(R)) client software for the Linux operating system. National, the leading provider of silicon solutions and development platforms for the thin client market, will use Citrix ICA to provide its customers the most enhanced solution utilizing the Linux operating system. The National thin client solution, based on the National(R) Geode(TM) GXLV integrated processor, provides optimal performance with low power consumption at an affordable cost."

"Citrix's ICA client software, together with the National thin client silicon solutions, offers users an easy-to-use, high-performance platform with access to a wide range of applications. Thin clients in an application server-computing environment provide enhanced capabilities such as speed, reliability, secure access to critical applications, as well as significant cost savings from centralized application hosting, deployment and administration."

"Citrix and National are driving the thin client, application server computing market by continuing to develop increasingly innovative solutions," said Barry Davis, vice president of Corporate Alliances for Citrix. "By incorporating support for Citrix ICA technology into National's Geode family of solutions, we can offer the market new ways to implement the application serving model and gain its benefits of broader application reach, higher performance over limited bandwidth, and reduced cost of application ownership."
