AllLinuxDevices: Embedded Linux Development Site Set to Unveil

“Aiming to dramatically cut the lead time for software
development in the PDA-Internet appliance arena, DevelopOnline, a
company incubated and spun off by Intel Corp., is turning to the
model that made Linux a household word.”

“On Oct. 2nd, the company will launch DevelopOnline.com, a site
intended to serve as a collaborative, online development center for
programmers, innovators and engineers to design or improve products
over the Web. Through the site, developers will have instant access
to working reference designs from multiple suppliers. A number of
companies have already signed on to provide their technologies to
developers through the site. They include Analog Devices, Avnet,
Intel, Lineo, MontaVista, Motorola, PLX Technology and ST
Microelectronics….”

“Targeted primarily at the embedded Linux community, the site
offers developers open source software (multiple versions of Linux)
and a database of complete open hardware platforms, including
reference designs, schematics and board layouts. Manufacturers who
feature their platforms on the site will pay fees to DevelopOnline
but the company said they will also gain exposure within market
segments and dramatically lower product development costs.”
