"Intel has invested in a Linux company that's helping to bring the open-source operating system to Intel's XScale chips."

"Intel's investment in Sunnyvale, Calif.-based MontaVista Software will help advance Linux technology and products for embedded computing devices that use the XScale chip, Intel spokesman Robert Manetta said today. XScale is the successor to Intel's StrongARM chip."

"Embedded devices span a broad range of non-PC products, everything from car antilock braking systems to network routers."

"Obviously, we want to see a lot of popular software ported to our architectures, and XScale is a good focus for us," Manetta said. He wouldn't disclose the size of the investment but said Intel typically invests between $1 million and $10 million in a company."
