SOCORRO, N.M., July 5 /PRNewswire/ -- FSMLabs, (http://www.fsmlabs.com), a
core system software development company targeting mission-critical
applications, today announced availability of their popular RTLinuxPro
development and deployment platform for a wide array of ARM(R) processors. By
combining hard real-time responsiveness with support for ARM processors,
RTLinuxPro has greatly broadened its application space to include mobile
phones and other hand-held devices, SOHO wireless and wireline networking
(access, routers, home gateways, etc.), medical and industrial portable
instruments, and myriad other applications formerly addressed with proprietary
legacy embedded OSes.
RTLinux enables system level developers targeting ARM devices to:
* Meet real-time deadlines on low clock and power-managed Linux-based
* Support baseband interfaces in Linux-based mobile phones and other
wireless devices without costly dedicated wireless modem chips
* Combine multimedia applications and signal processing on a single ARM
* Reach line-speeds in Linux-based home networking devices, with faster
out-of-band processing and exception handling
ARM and RTLinux -- Enabling the Marketplace
According to market analysts at Venture Development Corporation (VDC), ARM
processors lead the embedded market in design wins and volume shipments. VDC
studies also show Linux leading embedded wins, with 25% share in 2004 growing
to 29% in 2005. However, these same studies indicate that the leading
inhibitor to Linux adoption continues to be real-time performance. "That's
where RTLinux comes in," responds Victor Yodaiken, FSMLabs president and CEO.
"RTLinux lets ARM processor based Linux applications realize their full
performance potential, enabling mobile phones, consumer electronics gadgets,
networking devices and instruments deliver on end-user expectations."
ARM participates strongly in open source Linux development, and the ARM
sub-tree of the Linux kernel is mature and forward-looking. "ARM technology
powers a range of Linux-based applications, from mobile communications to
consumer electronics to storage," said Mary Inglis, Director, Operating
Systems and Alliances, ARM. "FSMLabs' RTLinux lets ARM Partners and their
customers meet stringent design requirements for these and other applications
with hard real-time performance and support for key ARM processors and
RTLinuxPro for ARM processors is available immediately from FSMLabs and
its worldwide channel partners. The RTLinuxPro tool kit includes FSMLabs
real-time development and deployment environment for ARM processors, together
with a complete standard Linux distribution including a 2.6 kernel, provided
on a single installation DVD-ROM. Included is support for the ARM920T(TM) and
ARM926EJ-S(TM) processors, with chip and board support for SoCs from Atmel,
FreeScale, Intel (PXA and IXP), Texas Instruments (OMAP) and other ARM
Partners. For a complete list of supported hardware, contact FSMLabs.
