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.
