RMI Corporation, a leading provider of high-performance processors for communication and media-rich applications, announced the availability of its Home Media Player® Application Development Kit (ADK) challenging the television and the PC for multimedia consumption in the home. The ADK is an open development system and includes a complete software Board Support Package (BSP) for customers and original design manufacturers (ODMs) targeting media-based applications such as wireless Digital Photo Frames (DPFs), Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), Digital Signage, Information Dashboards and other home networking and consumer devices.
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.
While the Adeneo hardware team was developing the NeoCore926 board (based on an Atmel AT91SAM9263 processor, ARM architecture), Adeneo software team wrote the Linux NeoCore926 Board Support Package. The BSP code was published on the Linux-arm-kernel mailing list and Andrew Victor, the AT91 platform kernel maintainer, integrated it into its at91-kernel patch-set.
QNX Software Systems announced that it has expanded its support for industrial automation platforms with board support packages (BSPs) for more than 20 reference designs and development kits from AMCC, Atmel, Freescale, IBM, Intel, Kontron, and other leading silicon vendors. Developers can download the new QNX BSPs immediately from Foundry27, the QNX community web portal.
