AllLinuxDevices: MontaVista to Enhance Linux for Intel’s Next-Gen Wireless Platform

MontaVista Software Inc., the company powering the
embedded revolution, today announced that its flagship product,
MontaVista Linux 2.1, will support the new Intel PXA 210 and Intel
PXA250 Applications Processors.

The Intel PXA210/250 Applications Processors are based on the
Intel XScale microarchitecture and are designed for next-generation
wireless and connected devices such as full-featured handheld
communication devices and advanced PDAs. Manufacturers of these
devices need embedded technologies that deliver high-performance,
robust functionality and versatility, while meeting the small-size
and low-power restrictions of their portable, battery-operated
products.

“Intel is pleased that MontaVista Software will be offering its
embedded Linux products for the Intel PXA210 and Intel PXA250,”
said Mark Casey, director of marketing for Intel’s Handheld
Computing Division. “MontaVista’s experience and expertise in the
Linux arena and the wireless and handheld embedded OS market makes
MontaVista Linux 2.1 a logical complement for Intel’s new
processors.”
