TimeSys Introduces Free LinuxLink Evaluation Subscription for
Pentium-class Processors; Enables Users to Perform Embedded
Development Tasks Key to Creating a Commercial-grade Custom Linux
PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2006--TimeSys(R) Corporation,
the leading developer service provider for the embedded Linux market,
is providing free access to the complete LinuxLink subscription for
Pentium-class processors for a 14-day evaluation period. Embedded
developers can use the evaluation subscription to rapidly determine
how LinuxLink by TimeSys(TM) can speed and simplify efforts to create
a commercial-grade custom Linux platform for any target processor.
LinuxLink is the first commercial offering to support the majority
of embedded developers who build and assemble their own
commercial-grade custom Linux platform by delivering on-demand access
to continuously updated processor-optimized Linux and components, a
rich development environment and community support. This is a
significant departure from commercial Linux vendors that dictate
feature sets and release schedules, resulting in platforms that
diverge significantly from the Open Source community.
Developers can use the free LinuxLink evaluation subscription to
build a uClibc root filesystem (RFS), boot the Linux kernel with their
newly created RFS, download a source or binary package and add it to
their RFS, build a flash filesystem and reuse their new RFS in a
variety of formats.
"TimeSys customers have told us that they frequently use
Pentium-class processors to model their project or experiment with new
Linux technologies," said Larry Weidman, president and CEO of TimeSys.
"With the full-featured 14-day LinuxLinux evaluation subscription, any
embedded developer can quickly experience first-hand how LinuxLink can
aid efforts targeting any processor."
Each free 14-day LinuxLink evaluation subscription for
Pentium-class processors includes:
-- Complete Pentium-class reference Linux distribution
-- Pentium-class processor-optimized cross development
-- Alerts to processor, patch and software component updates
-- Developer Exchange access to online, interactive support
-- Hands-on guide to installing and experimenting with the
The free 14-day LinuxLink evaluation subscription for
Pentium-class processors can be immediately activated online at:
Developers will have the option to extend their 14-day
subscription by choosing among a range of flexible LinuxLink
subscriptions available from TimeSys.
