Lineo Ships HTML-Based User Interface Module for Embedix SDK; Lineo Embedix UI Offers an Easily Customizable Interface for Embedded Devices

Dec 11, 2000, 00:00 ET from Lineo, Inc.

    LINDON, Utah, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in
 embedded Linux systems, real-time and high availability solutions, today
 announced the availability of Lineo(TM) Embedix(TM) UI.  This simple HTML
 interface and micro Web browser integrates easily with the Embedix SDK,
 providing developers with a way to quickly customize the operating system
 kernel to add user interface and Web browsing capabilities to an embedded
 device.
     Embedix UI has support for Internet and networking capabilities, including
 full support for HTML 3.2 and a majority of HTML 4.0, JavaScript 1.3, cookies,
 caching, international character display and the option for SSL 2.0 and
 3.0 encryption technology.  Additionally, Lineo Embedix UI user interface
 features a software keyboard, printing capability, infrared support and
 anti-aliased font rendering for improved display of content on television
 screens and LCD panels.  Embedix UI also has the ability for automatic
 software updates, giving OEM's the ability to create and update content to
 multiple devices simultaneously.
     "Embedix UI gives customers an easy way to add an interface to an
 application on an embedded device," said Brad Christensen, director of product
 marketing.  "Embedix UI combines the ease of HTML couples with mime type
 browser extensions to make user interface design and implementation a quick
 and easy process.  Embedix UI delivers a low cost, small footprint, fast
 time-to-market user interface solution."
     Full-featured, the Embedix UI has only a 1.5MB executable footprint, but
 can be scaled to be as small as 680K.  Because it utilizes the easily
 understood and widely used HTML standard, it reduces the high-cost of
 development and programming required by traditional user interfaces.  This
 combined with Embedix UI's automatic software update feature allows OEM's to
 be able to completely change the look and feel of multiple devices quickly and
 easily.
     Embedix UI begins shipping today at a list price of $1,500 and includes
 30 days of installation support.
