"Lineo, Inc., and IDT, Inc., today announced the availability of Lineo's flagship embedded product, Embedix, on IDT's RC32334 integrated processor, featuring a 32-bit MIPS instruction set architecture (ISA). This initial joint development effort provides a validated Linux kernel on the RC32334 in conjunction with drivers for PCI-based communications peripherals that interface directly to the RC32334 via the component's on-chip PCI bus interface."

"Device manufacturers can turn to Lineo for X86, PowerPC and now MIPS ISA support using our Linux product line," said Bryan Sparks, CEO, Lineo, Inc. "IDT has been a critical partner in helping Lineo to offer support for the Embedix product on MIPS architecture-based solutions."

"The Embedix operating system on the RC32334 is particularly appropriate for extremely cost-sensitive embedded applications in communications and consumer markets including home gateways, SOHO routers and Internet appliances. Customers can utilize some of the broad range of software written for the Embedix operating system to reduce system development cycles, based on a well-supported software kernel."
