Lineo Ships Embedix SDK for Windows; Lineo Helps Windows Developers Migrate to Become Embedded Linux Developers

Dec 06, 2000, 00:00 ET from Lineo, Inc.

    LINDON, Utah, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in
 embedded Linux(R) systems, real-time and high availability solutions, today
 announced the shipment of the Lineo(TM) Embedix(TM) software development kit
 (SDK) for Windows(R), the software that allows Windows developers to develop
 embedded Linux solutions in their familiar Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000
 hosted environments.  Windows developers benefit from developing in their
 Windows environment with full access to all of their native Windows
 applications and tools without the need to install and configure Linux or
 create additional partitions on their systems.
     Embedix SDK for Windows offers developers a virtual development
 environment with real-time response capabilities, X86 and PowerPC processor
 support and an integrated development environment to provide developers with
 the tools to quickly develop embedded Linux solutions for many embedded
 devices.
     "Windows developers can now expand their development portfolio to include
 embedded Linux without leaving their Windows environment," said Bryan Sparks,
 CEO, Lineo, Inc.  "Embedix SDK for Windows provides the tools and technologies
 to make it easier for developers to create embedded Linux for consumer
 devices, Internet infrastructure and industrial controls without the need for
 costly or time-consuming training.  With this product release, we are giving
 Windows developers the same capabilities that native Linux developers enjoy."
     Lineo provides the Embedix SDK for Windows through a virtual development
 environment using VMware for Windows.  Embedix SDK for Windows easily installs
 on a development workstation and allows developers to quickly begin writing,
 compiling and building applications for embedded devices on their Windows
 desktop.
     Lineo has integrated real-time technologies into the Embedix SDK to
 provide developers of embedded devices with both soft and hard real-time
 capabilities.  Now developers can gain preemptive, deterministic and
 guaranteed response times measured in microseconds for embedded devices that
 have such requirements.
     Embedix SDK supports and includes Metrowerks CodeWarrior(R), a leading
 integrated development environment (IDE).  CodeWarrior provides an important
 set of tools in the development of today's applications for embedded devices.
 CodeWarrior combines a text editor, project manager, search engine, compiler,
 linker and debugger into one integrated application which helps developers
 bring applications to market faster at a reduced cost.
     One of the key strengths of Embedix SDK is the inclusion of the Target
 Wizard(TM) library compilation tool, an automated way to quickly and easily
 select all of the requirements for a target image and check for all software
 interdependencies.  The Target Wizard tool also helps developers quickly
 create the smallest possible software image for their embedded device by
 stripping out unneeded features and software code.  By providing developers
 with the smallest possible software image, Embedix helps developers to create
 devices that require less hardware and allows them to gain greater economies
 of scale when producing large numbers of devices.
     In addition to Embedix SDK for Windows, Lineo ships an Embedix SDK for
 Linux, which provides developers with the same tools for developing in a
 native Linux development environment.
     Lineo Embedix is an embedded Linux software solution that adds the power
 and connectivity of Linux to customized embedded devices.  Embedix is
 engineered specifically for the unique speed, memory and storage requirements
 of embedded devices.  Embedix is based on a popular desktop Linux distribution
 and is currently available for Motorola PowerPC, x86, MIPS, and SuperH.  The
 Embedix operating system provides the power of Linux, the flexibility for
 feature selection, and the hardware support that enables device manufacturers
 to create a customized kernel for multiple solutions.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     Embedix SDK for Windows is now available and sells for $5,495 for one
 developer seat license and $5,000 for 5 additive developer seat licenses after
 the purchase of the initial developer seat license.  The license includes
 30 days free installation and configuration support, access to a web site
 built specifically to support our SDK developers and 1 year of free updates
 and upgrades.
