"Accelent Systems Inc., a leading enabler of intelligent appliances and embedded devices, today announced its Internet Appliance Reference Platform (IARP) for Linux based Internet appliance applications. The IARP is a portable wireless Internet appliance used to browse the Internet and to send and retrieve e-mail. Even though the IARP is targeted for home use, the IARP's flexible wireless architecture lends itself well to a wide range of other intelligent appliance or embedded OEM applications in commerce, industry, and elsewhere."

"The IARP is based on the Linux operating system and uses either the Intel StrongARM or LinkUp Systems ARM microprocessors. Through its revolutionary Intelligent System Software (ISS) technology, e-micrOS, Accelent's systems software technology enables the IARP to fully optimize the Internet connectivity, power management, and efficiency features inherent in the operating systems and processors. As such, the IARP has been designed to provide maximal configuration flexibility for Internet access-type device development. This versatility allows an OEM client to custom design the ruggedized unit to their specifications and to meet stringent time-to-market demands...."

"The intent of the IARP is to serve as the basis for a broad range of possible custom intelligent appliances or embedded devices. Accordingly, the existing design can be used as is, or it can be modified as much or as little as required for the specific application. Accelent Systems provides both software and hardware engineering development services to support such requirements, and will license the portions of the design (hardware and software) required by the customer."
