AllLinuxDevices: TimeSys Announces Availability Of TimeSys Linux GPL

“TimeSys Corporation, a pioneer and leader in Embedded
Linux and Java development technologies, today announced the
availability of TimeSys Linux GPL, a freely distributed, open
source operating system for multiple embedded boards. Each version
of the TimeSys Linux GPL is specifically designed for use with
different embedded processor architectures including PowerPC, ARM,
Super-H and Pentium. TimeSys Linux GPL will now support six of the
most popular embedded boards, with ports to more leading boards
under development for release early next year. TimeSys Linux GPL
represents the lowest-latency Linux kernel available and most
powerful and flexible embedded operating system on the market.

TimeSys Linux GPL is a full Linux distribution for all supported
embedded boards that includes everything needed to develop, deploy,
and maintain an embedded platform, including not only the world’s
lowest-latency Linux kernel, but also all the libraries, tool
chains, utilities, drivers, scripts, and documentation, all
distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). TimeSys
Linux GPL consists of a powerful, fully featured, preemptible Linux
kernel and all other components needed to extend a standard Linux
distribution to support predictable, extremely low-latency
response. The fully preemptible capabilities mean the kernel has
bounded, mutex-based kernel locking with a new fixed priority
scheduler, schedulable (meaning the developer sets the priorities)
interrupt handlers, and schedulable extended interrupt handlers,
including the IP stack.”
