PITTSBURGH, May 30, 2002 -- TimeSys Corporation, a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux(R) and Java(TM) development technologies, today released complete embedded Linux solutions, including a full Linux distribution with the lowest-latency Linux kernel available, certified device drivers, enhanced and certified GNU toolchains, cross platform development tools, and performance enhancing loadable kernel modules for Malta development boards utilizing the MIPS32 4Kc(TM) and MIPS64 5Kc(TM) processor cores. It is available for download from www.TimeSys.com.
"The initiative we've taken to enhance the open sourced version of MIPS- based GNU tool chains is an example of our commitment to provide a consistent level of quality and performance in a complete embedded Linux solution for system developers," said TimeSys President and CEO Larry Weidman. "These tool chains and our complete Linux solution are easily accessible to customers using standard MIPS-based products."
"Robust tools environments improve designers' abilities to develop applications and get to market quickly," said Brad Holtzinger, director of system solutions for MIPS Technologies. "Accordingly, we welcome the work TimeSys has done to further enhance the open-sourced GNU tool chains that support the MIPS32 and MIPS64 architectures."
32- and 64-bit MIPS-based processor cores are ideally suited for a variety of system-on-chip (SOC) embedded applications, such as digital consumer, networking, and office automation systems. TimeSys' Linux products for the MIPS32 and MIPS64 Malta development boards provide a complete embedded Linux solution featuring 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. Also available are TimeSys modules that transform TimeSys Linux GPL to meet strict performance requirements. TimeSys Linux/Real-Time delivers 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 also provides a complete embedded Linux-based solution for designing, developing and deploying devices on Malta development boards.
TimeSys' Linux solution for the MIPS32 and MIPS64 Malta development boards includes: Support for the Malta development boards for TimeSys' 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
TimeStorm(TM): TimeSys' Windows-hosted Integrated Development Environment for cross-platform development with Windows-based MIPS cross-platform tool chain TimeTrace: a Windows-hosted tool for event tracing and timing visualization TimeWiz(R): a Windows-hosted real-time analysis and simulation tool
For Windows-based cross platform development, TimeSys supports the Malta boards with the following set of Windows-based cross-development tools:
TimeSys' complete embedded Linux solutions for the MIPS Malta development boards are available for download from www.TimeSys.com.
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.
