June 20, 2012 -- Timesys Corp. today announced the company has made available its LinuxLink FREE and PRO Edition offerings via the ARM/ Avnet Embedded Software Store.
With 24/7 worldwide availability, the Embedded Software Store provides easy access to a broad range of Timesys offered software and services supporting the ARM architecture. The addition of LinuxLink offerings for the ARM family of processors to the Embedded Software Store provides developers with a one-stop-shop for acquiring Timesys' embedded Linux solutions for evaluation and development on ARM processor-based hardware designs.
Timesys' is a customizable embedded Linux development framework that eliminates the complexity and risks associated with using open source software. LinuxLink provides everything developers need throughout the entire product lifecycle, from getting started with the BSPs/ SDKs available in LinuxLink, to developing and debugging applications and finally, to deployment and maintenance of highly differentiated embedded Linux products.
Developers can use LinuxLink FREE Edition, the only cloud-based embedded software development system, to quickly and easily prototype and evaluate reference hardware by building custom BSPs and SDKs using a Web-based wizard interface.
They can use Timesys' desktop-based LinuxLink PRO Edition to benefit from advanced platform and application development tools and to take full advantage of all the hardware features that ARM-based processors offer.
LinxuLinkPRO Edition includes the Linux kernel, cross-toolchain, application development IDE, a build system called Factory, a library of middleware packages, software stacks and libraries and documentation.
In addition, LinuxLink PRO Edition subscriptions include unmetered, expert support.
"With the continuation of time-to-market issues and extreme cost pressures, Timesys LinuxLink offerings provide a competitively priced, quality solution that enables developers to get started quickly with their embedded product development," said Tim Barber, Senior Vice President of Global Business Development, Avnet Electronics.
"The addition of LinuxLink offerings to the Embedded Software Store enables developers to get started with LinuxLink easily and quickly, resulting in getting their products to market sooner," said Maciej Halasz, Director of Product Management at Timesys.
Timesys LinuxLink embedded Linux offerings will be available for purchase in the ARM/ Avnet Embedded Software Store beginning late June, 2012.
