e2v has developed a generic hardware architecture designed to be the base of their future products based on CCD and CMOS sensors (e2v is a leader in industrial cameras). Adeneo has been entrusted with the development of the Linux BSP for this platform. The choice of Linux allows the platform to easily benefit modern features such as full featured protocol stack (Bluetooth, USB, Ethernet, TCP/IP) and advanced file systems (network and NAND flash file system for example), for a limited cost and strict respect of norms. Such an OS is also heavily expandable and the platform could easily benefit from WiFi, as well as many other functions.
Adeneo has brought its expertise to the project by integrating existing features, developing new ones for specific hardware designed by e2v, and testing the BSP in order to deliver to e2v a ready-to-use Linux BSP in an industrial context.
Adeneo’s work on generic features of AT91SAM9263 realized for this project (NAND flash improvement, or Ethernet driver bug for example) has been integrated into an at91-kernel patch-set and into the mainline Linux kernel. At Adeneo, we think it is important to contribute to Open Source projects we are using, as long as possible, according to our customers’ constraints.
Adeneo is a leading design center in complete hardware and software custom design with consulting, engineering, equipment and manufacturing capabilities. Adeneo offers a complete line of systems integration services in hardware and software engineering on ARM and x86 core based embedded technologies in various ecosystems including but not limited to Industrial, Medical, Aeronautics, Enterprise, Military, Mobile and Consumer markets. With a strong emphasis on embedded and/or real-time development technologies and with 6 years of experience in Linux Embedded solutions, and thanks to its relationships with industry leading Silicon Vendors, Adeneo is the key industry partner for complete hardware and software designs targeting rich-featured high end products. Adeneo has been involved in the community (posts, contributions…) for many years. The contributions are wide range: RTAI, Xenomai (tests of new platforms, bug fixes and new architectures support), ARM-Linux kernel (new drivers, bug fixes). All this material comes from Adeneo R&D or from customer projects with their acknowledgment and their greatest benefits. Its facilities located around the globe in Europe, Asia and North America brings strong local support to its customers on a worldwide aspect.
