Hash: SHA1

MIPS-based energy monitoring system runs Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| RMI Corp. announced a design win for its MIPS-based Au1250 
| processor in a Linux-based home energy monitoring system. 
| Threshold Corp.'s Au1250-based device monitors and manages 
| energy consumption in real time, and appears to 
| incorporate the company's NFC-based "BlueSpot" auto-
| configuration technology.


Linux debugging environment adds Atom support

,----[ Quote ]
| Arium announced the release of Linx hardware and software 
| debugging components that now support Intel's Atom CPU. 
| Version 7.7.1 of the SourcePoint debugging software also 
| adds code trace and flash programming functionality, 
| together with Arium's now-Linux-ready ECM-XDP3 hardware 
| emulator, says the company.



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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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)
