San Jose, CA — (press release excerpt) — – LinkUp Systems Corp., providers of system-on-chip processor plus peripherals solutions for the Internet appliance and consumer electronics market, and PalmPalm Technology, a leader in embedded Linux, today announced that the LinkUp L7200 system development board will support PalmPalm's Tynux Linux-based operating system.

LinkUp Systems supplies the L7200 processor plus peripherals family, designed for creating Internet appliances such as Pocket PCs, Web phones, wireless Internet terminals, smart cellular phones, and embedded products. Products in the L7200 family include an ARM720T processor core, an integrated DSP, and many key peripherals on a single chip such as LCD controllers, SDRAM controllers, a FLASH memory, smart card and Multimedia card interfaces, a DMA controller and several serial interfaces.

PalmPalm supplies embedded Linux system integration in Korea for smartphones, screen phones, set-top boxes and other Internet appliance applications. PalmPalm's embedded Linux, Tynux, is a full-featured, highly-stable 32-bit operating system. Tynux provides fast real-time capability and advanced power conservation to systems designers, while optimizing use of memory resources and the Linux kernel. The Tynux kernel will run in less than 500K of RAM, and provides APM and ACPI-like power management for battery-operated devices.

The LinkUp L7200 family comes with complete development system support and an integrated debug environment. The development system consists of the L7200SDB development board with its associated software, such as support for low-level driver APIs (L7200API) in source form. A complete software toolkit (L7200TLK), which is optimized for the on-chip DSP co-processor of the L7200 device, is also available. The debug environment consists of an ARM debug monitor and Multi-ICE In-Circuit Emulator through JTAG interface.
