Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Lineo, Inc., a leading developer of embedded Linux system
software, today announced Embedix support for ARM cores. Lineo also
announced today Embedix uClinux for ARM, a processor support
package for putting the Embedix uClinux technology on the complete
range of ARM powered devices. With this addition, Lineo now
supports the full spectrum of ARM CPU cores, including those with
and without memory management units (MMUs)."
"Because the industry is migrating to system-on-chip based
designs, which are high volume and low cost, ARM is a strategic
processor family for us to support," said Bryan Sparks, CEO of
Lineo, Inc. "Lineo is committed to providing the market with the
premier Linux solutions for the microprocessors that are being
deployed in embedded devices."
"ARM processors are particularly popular for system-on-chip
solutions where an entire machine is built on a highly-integrated
single chip. Devices deploying system-on-chip processors are highly
integrated devices and internet appliances such as cellular phones,
PDAs, digital cameras and vending machines."
