AllLinuxDevices: Lineo And IDT Offer Embedix For Mips-Based Integrated Processor

“Lineo, Inc., and IDT, Inc., today announced the availability of
Lineo’s flagship embedded product, Embedix, on IDT’s RC32334
integrated processor, featuring a 32-bit MIPS instruction set
architecture (ISA). This initial joint development effort provides
a validated Linux kernel on the RC32334 in conjunction with drivers
for PCI-based communications peripherals that interface directly to
the RC32334 via the component’s on-chip PCI bus interface.”

“Device manufacturers can turn to Lineo for X86, PowerPC and now
MIPS ISA support using our Linux product line,” said Bryan Sparks,
CEO, Lineo, Inc. “IDT has been a critical partner in helping Lineo
to offer support for the Embedix product on MIPS architecture-based

The Embedix operating system on the RC32334 is particularly
appropriate for extremely cost-sensitive embedded applications in
communications and consumer markets including home gateways, SOHO
routers and Internet appliances. Customers can utilize some of the
broad range of software written for the Embedix operating system to
reduce system development cycles, based on a well-supported
software kernel.
