Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Axis Communications, a leader in network connectivity and
mobile Internet solutions, announced today the release of the Axis
Developer Board. The new offering gives developers of networked
embedded systems a powerful, flexible and economical platform for
rapid prototyping, development and deployment."
"The Axis Developer Board is based on the ETRAX 100
system-on-a-chip, an architecture already proven in more than one
million Axis products installed around the world. The Developer
Board also includes an Axis-developed, embedded version of the
popular Linux operating system, as well as the communications ports
most commonly used with the ETRAX chip. These features let
developers immediately test new applications without building their
own hardware. This results in quicker time to market and faster
validation of new product concepts with users."
"The ability to combine the power of Linux with the strengths of
the ETRAX architecture bodes well for applications developers.
Applications for devices and systems from Bluetooth-enabled
cell phones to vending machines, barcode scanners and building
automation systems can be built and deployed rapidly and
economically with the Axis Developer Board."
