"ZF Linux Devices, Inc, is announcing its ultra-low power (<
½W @ 133MHz) MachZ PC-on-a-Chip with a software suite that
includes a fully implemented PhoenixBIOSTM from Phoenix Technology
and a choice of a customized Linux implementation or the WindRiver
VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). Every MachZ Integrated
Development System includes Red Hat Linux 6.2 and LynuxWorks
BlueCat Linux and the LynuxWorks development tools for creating
compact custom Linux embedded applications. OEMs no longer have to
pay costly license fees or go through the expensive and
time-consuming requirement of porting third party software and
searching for unique peripheral drivers."
"MachZ, with the FailSafe System is the only X86
PC-on-a-Chip that boots autonomously on application of power and
can operate even if system DRAM and Flash are unavailable. The
groundbreaking crash-immune PC-on-a-Chip is the only device
available that ensures successful on-line software upgrades. Using
its patented FailSafe System it allows upgrades over the Internet
while eliminating the possibility of irrecoverable crashes. "The
MachZ PC-on-a-Chip is the only device that boots on power-up even
if all external system software has been corrupted or is
inaccessible," stated David Feldman, CEO of ZF Linux Devices.
"Using its proprietary Z-tag interface, the MachZ can re-program
system Flash at a quick 2M-bits per second, rather than the usual
19.6Kbaud, reducing potential downtime dramatically," he
"MachZ integrates a PhoenixBIOS and customized Linux
implementation or VxWorks RTOS tailored to the MachZ's unequaled
set of traditional PC hardware features including PCI, ISA and
Access (I2C) buses, serial and parallel I/O, floppy and hard disk
controllers. It also contains a host of patented features
specifically created to solve the problems faced by designers of
OEM products when integrating PC functionality. ZF Linux Devices'
introduction of the MachZ PC-on-a-Chip brings to market the lowest
power and most feature rich X86 PC-on-a-Chip ever introduced."
