Partnership results in embedded Linux toolkit for mobile platform developers


QuickLogic and Viosoft recently announced support for QuickLogic's Wi-Fi bridge and hard-disk drive controller solutions for Intel's PXA2xx embedded processor with the Arriba Embedded Linux Edition. QuickLogic's hardware development platform combined with Viosoft's Arriba debugger gives designers the hardware-software solution they need to rapidly develop Linux-based mobile embedded applications.

The Arriba Embedded Linux Edition for the QuickLogic Mobile Applications Platform comes pre-configured for Intel's PXA270 Mainstone DVK system, and supports QuickLogic's Mobile Applications Board running under Embedded Linux. The development environment is customized for the development and deployment of device drivers, loadable modules and user-mode applications.

Features of the Arriba Embedded Linux include a source level debugger of a kernel device driver (including init_module code), threads, and processes from a single connection; debugging of device drivers without preempting the PXA270 servicing of external interrupts; a graphical debugger GUI hosted on Linux and/or Windows platforms.; the ability to import, configure, and integrate various components of the Linux kernel with their applications code from a single desktop environment; and a GNU cross-compiler and utilities targeted for the Intel PXA270 embedded processor.

The Viosoft Arriba Embedded Linux Edition is available now for $4999 from Viosoft. The Wi-Fi and hard-drive solution packs, QV-PXA-MiniPCI, and QV-PXA-IDE, are available for $999 from QuickLogic. For additional product information, go to or
