Ampro Computers has announced a broad agreement with TimeSys, a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux and Java development technologies. The two companies will jointly supply a complete Linux operating system and development environment to accelerate the deployment of EnCore-based next-generation OEM devices using embedded Linux. TimeSys was named as the exclusive Linux for distribution with Ampro's QuickStart Development Kits for MIPS, PowerPC and x86 architectures.

"The objective of the partnership," said Joanne Williams, president and CEO of Ampro, "is to ensure that Ampro's OEM customers can quickly and easily drive Linux-based products to market built on the flexible, standards-based EnCore embedded computing platform."

"The Ampro partnership is an important step in the execution of our overall strategy of becoming the operating system of choice for the embedded Linux marketplace," said Larry Weidman, CEO of TimeSys. "They are leaders in standards-based embedded computing solutions having pioneered the embedded PC industry. This partnership will let system engineers speed their time-critical products to market with flexible, off-the-shelf modules and a robust, certified Linux OS in one complete, proven package."

Says Paul Rosenfeld, Ampro's vice president of marketing: "While there is a broad range of Linux code available for the different processor architectures in Ampro's product line, a significant investment would be required by each OEM using Linux to get the code ported, running and validated. Together, Ampro and TimeSys are providing a proven, fully validated platform, which will greatly reduce the effort required to develop and deploy Linux-based systems."

EnCore modules are similar in concept to high-integration chips, interfacing directly to a designer's form-factor-independent system board containing application-specific logic and I/O connections. They interface to a baseboard through up to 272 pins that provide the PCI bus, I/O signals and power and ground. The modules are 100 x 145 mm. The first result of the partnership will be the release of TimeSys Linux for Ampro's EnCore PP1 module based on a 300 MHz Motorola MPC8245 PowerPC processor.
