"As part of its ongoing effort to take a leading role in promoting the Linux operating system throughout the embedded, applied and appliance computing markets, NETsilicon Inc. (Nasdaq: NSIL), a premier provider of network-enabled, system-on-chip solutions for embedded systems, today announced that it has become a member of the Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC). As an early advocate for the group, and now as a member, NETsilicon is working with the ELC to help drive and accelerate the acceptance of Linux in embedded systems."

"We can all see there is plenty of room for Linux to grow in the embedded market, and NETsilicon intends to be among the leaders of that charge," said Pete Peterson, NETsilicon's president and chief executive officer. "In helping each other promote Linux in unison, we're all helping our clients realize the advantages of a system that allows them to reduce their time-to-market and bring down their development and runtime costs," he added, noting that: "Embedded Linux is an important part of NETsilicon's effort to accelerate the integration of these electronic devices into enterprise networks, particularly in the form of our integrated NET+Lx product, which integrates embedded hardware and networking software in a Linux environment."

"Murry Shohat, executive director of the new consortium, said, "The consortium's mission is to speed the adoption of Linux in embedded markets through our membership, promotion and implementation programs. We are striving to educate the market about Linux's reliability, modularity, scalability and low cost." Shohat added, "The consortium looks to our dynamic, proactive members, such as NETsilicon, to help set the agenda, articulate our vision and take the initiative in broadening the appeal and implementability of embedded Linux."
