Embedded Linux for consumer electronics applications


MontaVista Software's Linux Consumer Electronics Edition 3.0 is designed for consumer electronics applications such as mobile phones, digital televisions, set-top boxes and automotive telematics.

The company demonstrated a range of consumer products built on MontaVista Linux, from a numbe of consumer electronics companies at the International Consumer Electronics Show in the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

MontaVista Linux Consumer Electronics Edition (CEE) will initially support the TI OMAP 1510/5910 (and the associated Innovator Development Kit) and the IBM PowerPC 405LP (and the associated Arctic II Reference Board). Other processing platforms will be supported in the future.

In addition to the complete cross development environment that MontaVista provides with all of its three Linux Editions, CEE adds developer tools for tuning system performance.

CEE includes the fully preemptible MontaVista Linux kernel and real-time scheduling, small footprint targets and flash-based journaling file systems.

MontaVista CEE 3.0 incorporates dynamic power management features, file system enhancements and new tools to measure performance, system timing and memory size. CEE also features support for XIP (eXecute In Place) of the kernel and applications, as well as streaming media optimizations. It integrates with consumer market middleware such as the J2ME compatible WebSphere Micro Environment from IBM, and graphics packages such as QT/E from and MontaVista Graphics.
