ADI Engineering will distribute LynuxWorks' BlueCat Linux with its reference
card design for the Intel i80200 XScale microarchitecture, the
BRH card. The software/hardware combination provides customers with an
end-to-end solution for developers designing low-power,
high-performance applications such as data communications, networking,
video processing and broadband gateways. Users can create their own
custom platforms or employ ADI for specialized consulting and design.
The BRH has demonstrated new performance levels for i80200
processor operation and data throughput, while providing configurable,
big and little-endian mode support. A key differentiating performance
feature is its memory interface bandwidth, which benchmarks at 788 MB/s
sustained operation--a five-fold improvement over first-generation
i80200 processor memory controller chips. The BRH is an ideal
development platform for low-power, high-performance applications and
features a PCI expansion slot, dual Ethernet ports and unmatched
sustained SDRAM bandwidth.
LynuxWorks' BlueCat Linux is an open-source embedded development
environment without run-time royalties. Packaged with either a Windows,
Linux, or SolarisTM Operating Environment (Solaris OE) host
integrated development environment (IDE), commercial grade tools, and
support programs, BlueCat meets the diverse needs of individual
