LinuxDevices: MontaVista Tool Creates, Certifies Embedded Linux BSPs

[ Thanks to Jason

“MontaVista is launching an initiative to help hardware vendors
create and ‘self-certify’ their own board support packages (BSPs)
for MontaVista’s embedded Linux distributions. The initiative
revolves around a tool, expected within 90 days, that can test,
verify, package, and certify BSPs that MontaVista will support
according to the same terms it offers on internally created BSPs —
or ‘LSPs’ (Linux Support Packages), in MontaVista lingo.

“MontaVista hopes its Board Support Tool (BST) and LSP
Certification Program–the first of its kind in the embedded Linux
industry, it says–will enable hardware vendors to better meet high
demand for boards that support embedded Linux well, while
leveraging the ‘strong MontaVista brand,’ the company’s commercial
support services, and third-party software for MontaVista
