Wind River Systems
Linux as a Device Operating System
Have you ever wondered what software is inside your set top box?
your cell phone? the network appliance in your data center?
Chances are it is or will soon be Linux. Industry Analysts have
predicted that more than 30% of all Intelligent Device
Applications will be developed on the Linux platform this
year. In fact, you may want to consider a custom Linux
application appliance if the traditional enterprise deployment of
applications is not keeping pace with your business demands.
The presentation will focus on the industry trends that are
driving Linux into the real time and not so real time device
software arena, including observations on where Linux fits well
and where it does not. There are many benefits and advantages
associated with Linux as a device operating system. There are
also challenges that should be considered such as selecting the
right distribution, cost, time to market, performance and
While the lines between enterprise Linux application development
and device application development are blurring, there key
differences in the development paradigm. In an embedded platform
issues such as board bring up, creating a Linux boot image and
debugging the kernel and/or the application present challenges
not found in enterprise Linux. Wind River will demonstrate its
capabilities to support native and embedded cross development.
