LONDON The LiMo Foundation has selected Wind River as the systems integrator to deliver the common infrastructure, tools, testing and integration services for the LiMo platform.
A Board member of LiMo Foundation, Wind River will now be LiMo's chosen systems integrator providing technology and services to combine, harden and validate code contributions of LiMo members through a Common Working Environment (CWE).
“Through its selection of Wind River as a company with a legacy of world-class embedded software, LiMo expects to be able to accelerate its goal of reducing Linux fragmentation while intensifying platform development through the rapid adoption of member contributions,” said Morgan Gillis, executive director of LiMo Foundation.
In addition to the integration of member code, Wind River expects to enhance the efficiency of the contribution process for members through collaboration tools and enhanced processes. This will become increasingly important as more strategic contributions require integration into LiMo reference platforms.
All contributions for the R2 version of the LiMo platform have been submitted by members into LiMo Foundation in advance of final delivery later in 2009 with interim releases being made to allow OEMs to continue to build next-generation LiMo devices.
