San Francisco; Intel Developer Forum — (press release excerpt) — LynuxWorks Inc. today announced an embedded Linux development environment for Intel's XScale-based IOP321 I/O processor. LynuxWorks has preconfigured for greater performance its BlueCat 4.0 Linux and commercial grade tools for the Intel IOP321 I/O processor. The optimized third-generation BlueCat development environment will be made available as part of the Intel IQ80321 Software Development Kit and as a separate storage and networking solution direct from LynuxWorks.

The new Intel IOP321 I/O processor is ideal for designs with space constraints, which require high performance, low power consumption and manageable costs. Intel is targeting the use of the processor for both storage and networking embedded product applications. Target applications in data storage include RAID, SCSI/Fibre Channel, NAS, SAN and video. For networking, the IPO321 is best suited for LAN cards, routers, switches, and Ethernet and ATM devices.
