6WIND Joins eNsembleTM Multi-Core Alliance to Drive 6WINDGate Packet Processing Software Leadership 

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing a comprehensive Linux networking 
| software solution that delivers a 7-10x 
| packet processing performance improvement 
| compared to standard Linux networking 
| stacks, it allows OEMs to develop multi-
| core-based products that achieve the best 
| cost-performance, integration and energy 
| efficiency in the industry. Because 
| 6WINDGate is fully compatible with standard 
| Linux APIs, developers can migrate standard 
| Linux applications onto new platforms based 
| on 6WINDGate without having to redesign or 
| rewrite their existing software, thereby 
| easing the transition from single to multi-
| core platforms.


Microtronix introduces Scatter Gather DMA Engine for Altera PCIe Hard IP Cores

,----[ Quote ]
| "By packaging a powerful Scatter-Gather DMA 
| Engine, a PCIe Bridge with Linux drivers, 
| the Lancero Design Kit streamlines the 
| engineering design task of adding high 
| bandwidth peripherals into embedded 
| systems." said Norman McCall, president of 
| Microtronix. 


Lantronix XPort Pro Wins EDN Magazine's 20th Annual Innovation Awards

| The product's Software Developer Kit (SDK), 
| with IPv6 support, is an integrated 
| embedded hardware and software suite that 
| provides a validated set of Linux-based 
| applications, an extensive software 
| library, a board support package (BSP) and 
| device drivers that allow designers to 
| create custom tailored products.



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 v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
