Jaluna joins Eclipse with embedded virtualization tools focus

Mar 27, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Jaluna has joined the Eclipse Foundation, and will demonstrate an Eclipse-based tool suite for its platform virtualization software, at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) next week in San Jose. The company's OSware, Linux Edition, targets embedded systems requiring the full functionality of Linux, alongside pre-ported stacks and/or proprietary real-time kernels.

Jaluna describes OSware as a “high-performance” software virtualization platform for embedded systems.” The company says OSware lowers BOM (bill-of-materials) and development costs, while providing enhanced intellectual property preservation. OSware was launched in May of 2004, and has since been used in embedded applications as diverse as carrier-class soft-switches, mobile phones, and set-top boxes (STBs), including DSP-based STBs.

Versions of OSware for Linux that are compatible with Nucleus and VxWorks are available off-the-shelf. Both Nucleus and VxWorks are supported by Eclipse tools.

Mark Milligan, VP of marketing at Jaluna, stated, “Eclipse has become the development platform of choice. In joining the Eclipse Foundation, Jaluna will continue ensuring interoperability with other Eclipse-based software components.”

The Eclipse Foundation, meanwhile, held its annual developer's conference last week. Embedded Linux vendor LynuxWorks recently joined as well.
