BW: Silicom Announces...Linux Support for...USB Home-Networking and...Internet Access Product Line

Nov 30, 1999, 18:31 (3 Talkback[s])

"With the increasing acceptance of the Linux operating system, and being among the first companies to offer Linux support for its PCMCIA products, the Company is now developing Linux support for its Home-Networking and Broad-Band Internet Access product line. The Linux software support is expected to be released during the first quarter of 2000."

"As Windows NT4, Linux does not contain USB system device drivers and interfaces. Therefore, the Linux drivers and software support currently under development present the same type of research and development challenges we faced while developing the Windows NT 4.0 support.", said David Hendel, VP R&D at Silicom. "Based on our previous experience with developing Linux drivers for our PCMCIA products released in early 1999, and based on our successful development of USB support for Windows NT4, we are very optimistic that we will successfully finalize this challenging development task."
