"Software suitors seem to be lining up to take IBM's fresh-faced 750CX microprocessors to the barn dance and OnCore Systems may be penciled in for top spot on the Power PC's dance card."

"OnCore Systems has been working with IBM's PowerPC management team to port its embedded operating system (OS) to IBM's PowerPC line of processors. "Such a development system was needed to support the complex systems requirements for an IBM customer that was engineering one of the world's most powerful network switch routers," said OnCore spokesperson Phil Parker."

"Parker said that the PowerPC 750CX microprocessor will debut with OnCore's OS at the Embedded Processor Forum, slated for June 13. OnCore's scalable architecture made it possible to design a system that would run mission-critical, real-time applications simultaneously with a standard version of Linux on a network switch outfitted with up to 64 PowerPC 750 processor cards per node, Parker said."
