June 29, 2009 -- Timesys Corp. has announced LinuxLink 3.0 support for Xilinx Virtex-4 and Virtex-5 FPGAs. Complementing this new Virtex support within LinuxLink, Timesys also announced an FPGA design service.
With support for Xilinx's reference boards, LinuxLink users can easily leverage the flexibility of Xilinx's FPGAs to develop custom hardware with comprehensive embedded Linux support. LinuxLink provides full support for a wide variety of peripherals including Ethernet, Serial and System ACE, enabling developers to achieve fast product design cycle.
The combination of the LinuxLink framework from Timesys and the EDK development tools from Xilinx results in smooth hardware-software integration. The Xilinx EDK tools accelerate the design cycle by allowing a hardware design team to choose and customize from several IP blocks. Similarly, the Timesys LinuxLink framework accelerates software development by enabling the design, customization and integration of a custom Linux image matching the hardware platform. The combination of these development tools allows companies to create a complete custom Linux based product using the latest open source code at a very reasonable cost.
