Timesys Corporation, a premier provider of embedded Linux software solutions, announced LinuxLink support for the Freescale i.MX31 PDK. Based on Freescale’s i.MX family of multimedia processors, LinuxLink for the i.MX31 PDK leverages the system’s powerful suite of high-performance multimedia features, including audio, video and image processing.
With this LinuxLink, subscribers will get web-based access to an easy-to-install multimedia Linux platform which includes a mini desktop, Web browser, streaming audio player and video player. Built by Timesys’ award-winning Online Linux Factory, the platform is provided with a 2.6.24 Linux kernel, GNU toolchain and hundreds of ready-to-use root filesystem (RFS) packages. Additionally, subscribers will have access to TimeStorm development tools, web-based support and a vast suite of documentation to customize and test their embedded Linux platform for a given multimedia application.
“The Freescale i.MX31 PDK is a great platform to prototype and evaluate multimedia applications on embedded Linux,” said Greg Quiggle, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Timesys. “We are excited to showcase this platform’s strengths through an integrated suite of common Linux building blocks, such as gtk, gpe, gstreamer and webkit.”
LinuxLink support for additional Freescale PDK configurations, such as the i.MX27 PDK, will be generally available over the next several months.
