LONDON Jaluna, the provider of virtual infrastructure software for embedded systems, has made its Jaluna OSware, Linux Edition for Texas Instruments TMS320C6000 digital signal processors available to research teams and educators at schools, universities and labs throughout Europe, at a special academic discount.
Jaluna (Montigny-le-Bretonneux, France) is working with TI to provide the software platform for any academic institutions using TI's DSP products. According to Jaluna more than half of all universities teaching electronics in the European Union use TI DSP-based systems and make use of the products to teach and develop advanced software solutions.
As a complete solution to run both real-time and Linux applications in embedded systems, Jaluna OSware provides a software solution for TI DSPs, but also a technology that supports development programs outlined in course and lab work. Flavio Daffara, European Third Party and University Program Manager at TI, said, “Jaluna's academic offering is an ideal complement to Texas Instruments University Program. Our joint solution will help educators introduce Linux and embedded DSP to students throughout Europe, providing state-of-the-art software for classes and research projects.” Didier Irlande, marketing manager, EMEA, Jaluna, said, “This program supports Jaluna's effort to build relationships with leading semiconductor manufacturers, such as Texas Instruments, as well as providing European University student's access to one of the most innovative software solutions in the market today.” Jaluna OSware, Linux Edition for TI's 'C6000 DSP is a virtualization software platform for embedded devices based on TI's single chip DM64x or C64x DSPs. Through this solution, Jaluna helps academic institutions leverage the capabilities and features of standard Linux, while maintaining the real-time processing of audio, video and wireless networking stacks for devices such as IP set-top boxes, video phones and other low-cost video devices and telecom equipment. Beyond the initial product discount, academic institutions will also benefit from simplified licensing and technical training, supporting quick access and rapid adoption for new users.
