Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Availability of uCLinux for the APS3 family of processors has
been announced by Cortus. This version of Linux is ideally suited
to low-power, high-performance, embedded systems. The APS3 family
of processors comprises modern, powerful processors, specifically
designed for embedded systems, featuring a tiny silicon footprint,
says the company.
"The APS3 architecture is seen as ideal for uCLinux. The clean,
uniform, architecture means that the ported kernel code is
straightforward, easily implemented and understood. There are no
hidden pitfalls due to inconsistencies in the architecture which
could reduce performance or trip up unwary programmers. Developing
application programs is uncomplicated and creating drivers for new
peripherals and hardware is simple."
