SAN JOSE, Calif. — (press release) — Integrated Software & Devices Corporation (ISDCorp), a leader in embedded Linux, today announced that ISDCorp has joined the MIPS Alliance Program. The agreement calls for ISDCorp to provide Royal Linux to MIPS32 and other MIPS architecture processors. In addition, ISDCorp will offer systems integration services, software drivers and Linux support for MIPS Technologies customers and licensees.

Having recently announced the production availability of Royal Linux and the successful port of Linux 2.2.1, ISDCorp is working to ensure that any systems manufacturer using RISC processors can now take advantage of the footprint and speed of Royal Linux for their devices, at a cost considerably lower than that of other embedded operating systems. “This agreement with ISDCorp will be providing an embedded Linux solution for MIPS Technologies customers and licensees faced with market demand for shortened design schedules and reduced costs,” stated Brian Knowles, vice president of marketing for MIPS Technologies, Inc.

“This is yet another example of ISDCorp's ability to support top-tier RISC IP providers and their customers. MIPS Technologies is a market leader and one of the world's primary architects of embedded 32- and 64-bit processors,” commented Dan Wald, vice president of Business Development for ISDCorp. With over nine years of experience supporting leading electronic OEMs with OS ports and device drivers for their embedded systems, ISDCorp has repeatedly demonstrated its system software knowledge and expertise. “As MIPS Technologies delivers more powerful 32- and 64-bit processor technology to its customers and licensees, ISDCorp's Royal Linux for MIPS based processors will accelerate product development while reducing cost and time-to-markets,” Wald concluded.
