"ZF Linux Devices Inc., a five-year-old Silicon Valley firm that started out developing multichip modules but is now targeting X86 PCs-on-a-chip for embedded applications, has won a host of investors, including National Semiconductor Corp. and Samsung, in a $15 million funding round."

"The cash will be used for marketing and to begin volume production of the privately-held company's new MachZ PC-on-a-chip, as well as develop a family of MachZ-based Internet appliances. The chip, which is produced at National, and appliances designed around it, will be unveiled at PC Expo in New York next week."

"We are now doing embedded processors and targeting information appliances, anything that will capture, process and transmit information through the Internet," said David Feldman, president and chief executive officer of ZF Linux Devices. Feldman founded the firm in 1995 as ZF MicroSystems."
