"Red Hat, Inc. today announced that the Red Hat Embedded Linux Developer Suite is now available. The Developer Suite is a packaged solution for creating embedded applications and devices. It accelerates development cycles and improves product quality by using Red Hat Linux 7.2 as the common base for the host and target platforms.

The Developer Suite is just one in a line of products and services based on Red Hat Linux 7.2, which provides a unified code base to cover the full spectrum of computing platforms, from small, embedded devices up to the largest mainframe computers.

"Without a unified code base, embedded developers would have to duplicate all the driver support that comes for free with Red Hat Linux," said Michael Tiemann, CTO of Red Hat. "Embedded systems which were designed to get around the high cost of proprietary peripherals and interfaces can now save cost by using commodity PC components, benefiting from the immense driver support offered by Red Hat Linux. Internet appliances, once limited to PC form factors, can now be implemented with a variety of price, performance, power, weight, and size factors, truly expanding the capabilities of the Internet."
