BW: Red Hat’s Open Source Embedded OS to Power Post-PC Printer Device From Brother

“Brother Embraces Red Hat’s Powerful and Flexible eCos OS
for Deeply Embedded Application.”

“Red Hat, Inc… today announced that eCos(TM) (embedded
configurable operating system) is powering Brother International
Corp.’s recently announced HL-2400CeN & HL-3400CN laser
printers.”

“Targeted at deeply embedded applications (such as automotive
controls, cell phones, digital cameras, pagers) with minimal
resource footprint or strict real-time behavior requirements, eCos
is the only open source Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) that is
tightly integrated with industry-standard, commercially supported
GNUPro developer tools. eCos is highly configurable, making it
possible to create the extremely small footprint required by a new
generation of post-PC devices with strict configuration and memory
requirements.”
