LINDON, Utah, Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in
embedded Linux solutions today announced the successful porting of the
uClinux(TM) 2.4 kernel to the Motorola DragonBall(TM) family of processors.
The uClinux microcontroller operating system was made popular by its ability
to run on processors without memory management hardware and with a typical
kernel footprint of only 512K bytes or less. Through Lineo's innovations,
device manufacturers are able to deliver lower cost solutions in less time.
Lineo's development gives uClinux users access to numerous new features of
the Linux 2.4 kernel some of which include: USB support, IrDA (infrared data
transmission) and QoS (quality of service) support which combine to increase
the strength of the networking capabilities.
Lineo's ongoing investment in the uClinux operating system provides
developers with continued access to emerging microprocessor families through
professional services, research and development.
The uClinux 2.4 kernel will be showcased next month at the LinuxWorld
trade show in New York City. Development on the uClinux platform was
conducted at Lineo engineering centers located in Toronto, Virginia and Utah.
Earlier versions of the uClinux kernel support the Motorola 68k family
including, DragonBall and Coldfire, ARM7TDMI, i960 and other MMU-less RISC
based processors. For more information on additional microprocessor board
support for uClinux, contact Lineo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
