PowerPC 750(TM)-Based MVME2433-3 and MVME5100-0131 SBCs



Apr 22, 2002, 01:00 ET from TimeSys Corporation

    PITTSBURGH, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- TimeSys Corporation, a pioneer and
 leader in Embedded Linux(R) and Java(TM) development technologies, announced a
 complete embedded Linux solution, including a full Linux distribution with the
 lowest-latency Linux kernel available, certified device drivers, GNU
 toolchains, cross platform development tools, and performance enhancing
 loadable kernel modules, for Motorola's MVME2433-3 and MVME5100-0131 single
 board computers (SBC) built on the PowerPC 750(TM) processor.  Embedded
 systems developers looking for a Linux solution for these PowerPC 750(TM)-
 based VME boards will be able to download a complete, certified solution from
 www.TimeSys.com beginning April 26.
     "Embedded systems designers building telecommunications, network-edge, and
 industrial control devices on the Motorola PowerPC 750 processor are looking
 to Linux as a cost-effective and reliable embedded operating system and
 development environment," said TimeSys President and CEO Larry Weidman.  "Our
 complete embedded Linux solutions for the MVME2433 and MVME5100 boards provide
 designers with everything they need to design, develop and deploy their
 devices.  This includes the operating system, development tools, device
 drivers and real-time modules that we've developed to work specifically on
 these boards."
     TimeSys' Linux products for the MVME2433 and MVME5100 boards provide a
 complete embedded Linux solution for building applications for the defense-
 aerospace, industrial automation, consumer digital and telecommunications
 industries.  TimeSys' complete embedded Linux solutions for these boards
 feature TimeSys Linux GPL, consisting of a fully featured preemptible kernel
 that extends a standard Linux distribution to support the predictable,
 extremely low-latency response requirements of embedded systems based on the
 PowerPC architecture.  Also available are TimeSys modules that transform
 TimeSys Linux GPL to meet the performance requirements of applications ranging
 from handheld devices and telecommunication switches to process control and
 avionics.  TimeSys Linux/Real-Time delivers additional capabilities to deliver
 full response predictability to TimeSys Linux GPL.  TimeSys Linux/CPU and /Net
 provide capabilities for dynamic load handling and system overload protection.
 Used in conjunction with TimeSys' cross-platform development tools, TimeSys
 provides a complete embedded Linux-based solution for designing, developing
 and deploying devices on the Motorola MVME2433 and MVME5100 boards.
     TimeSys' Linux solution for the Motorola MVME2433 and MVME5100 boards
 delivers a complete solution for embedded engineers that includes:
 
     -- Support for the MVME2433-3 and MVME5100-0131 for TimeSys' complete
         embedded-Linux product offering
     -- Linux board-hosted GNU tool chains
     -- PC-based Linux cross-platform GNU tool chains
     -- Timing analysis core for use by TimeSys' event tracing and timing
         visualization tool: TimeTrace(R)
     -- Certified device drivers
     -- User, API and SBC specific documentation
 
     For Windows-based cross platform development, TimeSys supports the MVME
 boards with the following set of Windows-based cross-development tools:
 
     -- TimeStorm(TM): TimeSys' Windows-hosted Integrated Development
         Environment for cross-platform development
     -- TimeTrace: a Windows-hosted tool for event tracing and timing
         visualization
     -- TimeWiz(R): a Windows-hosted real-time analysis and simulation tool
 
     TimeSys' complete embedded Linux solution for these boards will be
 available for download at www.TimeSys.com beginning April 26, 2002.
 
     About TimeSys
     TimeSys is a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux and Java development
 technologies.  Its products allow design engineers to leverage the power,
 flexibility and reliability of a new class of development tools for advanced
 embedded systems for a variety of markets and applications, covering the
 complete performance range from non-real-time to deterministic hard real-time,
 using both open-source and proprietary technologies.  TimeSys is considered
 the top choice by systems architects for developing more robust, less
 expensive, single API Linux solutions for embedded systems. TimeSys was the
 first to create a reservation technology that guarantees system response, even
 in overloaded systems.  TimeSys solutions offer completely predictable and
 fast response time performance. For more information about TimeSys, please
