All Built-to-Spec Custom Linux Distributions include full source code ad prebuilt binary packages for the following components:

• Cross-development tool chain and development packages for the target embedded processor.

• Prebuilt target root file system and corresponding sources consisting of a wide range of packages that form a feature-rich embedded Linux real-time environment.

• Linux kernel configured for the specified processor or board.

• Free 14-day evaluation of Eclipse 3.0-base TimeStorm Linux Development Suite, a cross-development platform, kernel, and device driver platform customization.

In addition, Built-to-Spec Custom Linux Distributions serve as an entry point into TimeSys Corp.’s Linux Customization Solutions, which consist of Web-based automated development, build, and validation components and systems that help developers tailor Linux on their own while saving money, effort, and time.
