Enea Announces Linux Configuration and Build Environment for NetLogic Microsystems' Processors

Enea (News - Alert), which provides solutions for communication-driven products, announced the release of its market-leading Linux configuration and build environment for NetLogic Microsystems (News - Alert), a provider of high performance and ultra low power, multi-core, multi-thread processors.

The combination of NetLogic Microsystems technology and Enea-supported Linux development environment offer a flexible platform on which developers can build a wide range of high performance systems. The entire suite is available free of charge for NetLogic Microsystems’ market-leading multi-core processors.

The new solution is based on a Linux configuration and build tool that is fully integrated and tested with NetLogic Microsystems’ SDK with select additional packages to offer NetLogic Microsystems’ customers an intuitive and extensible Linux “jump start kit” installation, the company said.

Complemented by a standard, Eclipse-based IDE with editor, navigation, project facilities and source-level debugger this integrated tool and OS platform provide customers with a flexible and easily deployable Linux environment.

According to Chris O’Reilly, vice president of marketing at NetLogic Microsystems, the relationship with Enea will deliver powerful development tools and support offerings around the NetLogic Microsystems Linux SDK platform.

O’Reilly said, “Delivering state-of-the-art multi-core software platforms to the market is central to our strategy of enabling leading OEMs to develop highly competitive and differentiated solutions in the market.”

Enea will provide optional, annual support subscriptions for customers seeking commercial support from Enea's Linux experts. They will also offer additional multi-core runtime and tools options, and value-add services from Enea’s extensive portfolio of software and services, company officials said.

According to Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at Enea, through the partnership with NetLogic Microsystems they are able to deliver unprecedented instant access to such a highly integrated and comprehensive Linux configuration.

Båth said, “The business model of unrestricted access, with true value-add in available advanced runtime components, tools, support and services is the way in which developers today expect to work with open source software.”

The custom ‘platform builder’ approach at the core of this PDK is certainly the way developers prefer to build their Linux-based systems moving forward, Båth said.

Earlier in September, Enea announced that Equisys, a provider of software packages for document production and delivery, has selected to deploy the company's Netbricks IAF-Bricks technology.

Netbricks IAF-Bricks combines all the telecommunications protocols (T.30, T.38 and SIP) required in implementing Fax over IP (FoIP), reducing the amount of implementation work required, while guaranteeing high-levels of interoperability, company officials said.
