RoweBots, a leading developer of Linux software for OEM applications, has paired with Actel Corporation a global provider of system and power management solutions in releasing a Linux OS, Unison that finds its application in SmartFusion devices.
Embedded engineers can make use of this fully-customizable, easy-to-use Linux based embedded platform thereby enabling a step forward in the intelligent FPGA design.
Linux needs a CPU with a memory management unit (MMU) but the embedded Linux does not entail an MMU but has a large memory footprint. This product offers seamless support including integrated embedded OS with complete documentation, complete POSIX and Linux capabilities with small modular memory footprint thereby reducing the size of the processor, risk mitigation using standards and standard tests ensuring high reliability, free source code, low-cost deployment licenses, quick incorporation of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and other analog features.
All Unison varieties undergo rigorous testing with regularized POSIX test set along with added investigation, progress and administration methodology, making them the premier dependability standards based ultra tiny OS available.
Unison is released with SoftConsole, Actel's free software development environment to manage the embedded software development projects. The product is illustrated in detail with more than more than 30 demos.
Actel and Rowebots will also present a live seminar on August 25, explaining the role of Unison Linux OS in supporting SmartFusion with incorporated ARM Cortex M3 processor with RAM of 1K and 6K of flash.
Unison 4 with basic documentation and I/O system can be availed at free of cost from Actel website. Unison5 is the latest version which can be purchased from RoweBots. It has various add on modules, an extensive customer support and other upgraded features.
