Linux stacks target industrial, medical sectors

,----[ Quote ]
| Wind River launched a partner validation program to offer pre-
| validated middleware stacks integrated with Wind River Linux 
| and VxWorks for the industrial and medical markets . The 
| initial partners for the Wind River Partner Validation Program 
| are Acontis Technologies, Esterel Technologies, KW-Software, 
| and Softing AG, says the company.


Embedded security software rev'd

| DSF 5.1 is available for 30 operating systems and more than 70 
| CPUs, and is "platform independent, endian-neutral, and can be 
| used without an OS or RTOS," says Mocana. Platforms are said to 
| include Linux, MontaVista Linux, VxWorks, OSE, Nucleus, 
| Solaris, ThreadX, Windows, MacOS X, (ARC) MQX, pSOS, and 
| Cygwin. All versions are said to be available as government-
| certified FIPS 140-2 level 1 validated binaries, or in source. 
| A developer API is also said to be available.



Study: Wind River outpaces MontaVista

,----[ Quote ]
| VDC Research issued a report estimating that Wind River has pushed past
| MontaVista Software, taking the top spot among commercial embedded Linux
| providers. In a separate study on the overall embedded market, meanwhile, VDC
| said that real-time solutions outperformed the general embedded market last
| year, with nine percent growth over 2007.



Linux still top embedded OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In a new whitepaper on Linux in the embedded market, VDC researchers cite the
| following reasons for Linux's popularity:
|     * Licensing cost advantages
|     * Flexibility of source code access
|     * General familiarity
|     * Maturing ecosystem of applications and tools
|     * Growing developer experience with Linux as an embedded OS


Embedded Linux research report ships

| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.

| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
