AllLinuxDevices: Metaflow Introduces SOC Platform with Open Source Core and Embedded LinuxDec 15, 2000, 23:22 (0 Talkback[s])
"Metaflow Technologies Inc. (www.metaflow.com) has introduced Implosion, a system on chip (SoC) design platform that uses Open Source IP for its key hardware and software components."
"The Linux phenomenon has proven that Open Source is an effective way for producing world-class IP, and has created legitimate business models for commercial companies adding value around this IP," said Cosma Pabouctsidis, Metaflow's marketing director, "The same is now happening with hardware IP and Metaflow intends to be at the forefront of this revolution as it applies to Systems on Chip."
"Built around the open AMBA bus architecture, Metaflow's Implosion platform comprises foundation and application specific components that are pre-assembled and verified, which the company says will shorten time to market and lower costs. The platform can be customized by Metaflow to produce a full custom IC that meet specific needs by adding or removing validated application-specific components or by adding third party or full-custom blocks."
