San Jose, Calif. LynuxWorks added the BlueCat Linux Micro Edition (BlueCat-ME) to its family of Linux-based operating system. BlueCat-ME, a result of the company's previously announced affiliation with chipmaker Xilinx, offers full support of the Linux 2.6 kernel. BlueCat-ME enables developers to work with Linux on both PowerPC and MicroBlaze architectures and LynxOS for PowerPC.
BlueCat-ME offers the benefits of the Linux distribution to developers using non-memory management unit (non-MMU) architectures for their embedded systems for the first time. Through these capabilities, BlueCat-ME expands open source developers' flexibility and allows them to create the powerful applications. In conjunction with the Xilinx MicroBlaze embedded developers kit (EDK), BlueCat-ME automatically configures a board support package based on the parameters set within the EDK, which allows software engineers to easily change it if the FPGAs programmable logic is reconfigured. BlueCat Linux is an implementation of the Linux model enhanced for a wide array of embedded systems, from small consumer devices to large-scale, multi-CPU systems.
