San Jose, CA; Intel Developers Forum — (press release excerpt) — LynuxWorks, Inc. today announced the availability of its BlueCat Linux for Intel's new XScale microarchitecture, making LynuxWorks among the earliest providers of operating systems developed for XScale, Intel's new processor core technology.

XScale is designed to provide high performance, low power consumption and reduced thermal constraints for a wide range of market segments, from battery-powered, wireless and handheld applications such as digital phones and personal digital assistants to such Internet infrastructure applications as network processors and intelligent I/O processors. An evaluation copy of LynuxWorks' BlueCat will be included with Intel's shipments of the IQ80310 XScale microarchitecture evaluation platform.

The BlueCat Linux evaluation package will be included, at no charge, with Intel shipments of the IQ80310 QUICKval kit in early March 2001.
