"Rappore Technologies, a champion of wirefree communications, today announced the formation of a strategic relationship with Lineo, a leading embedded Linux company, to port Bluetooth technology to Lineo's Embedix embedded Linux operating system. This is the first announcement of a Bluetooth protocol stack for an embedded Linux OS. Rappore Technologies is also the first 'wirefree' company to join Lineo's Partner Connect program."

"Rappore Technologies' Professional Services organization is working with Lineo engineering to integrate the two technologies. This effort integrates Rappore Technologies' protocol stack, which adheres to the proposed Bluetooth 1.1 Specification, and Embedix, which is based on the Linux Open Source release 2.2.17. The resulting solution enables wireless connectivity for embedded devices such as personal digital assistants (PDAs), portable office equipment, automotive computing, cellular phones, digital cameras, medical equipment, industrial automation products, or any OEM embedded application that requires Embedix support and Bluetooth radio connectivity."
