Intel adds LynuxWorks to “Applied Computing” partner list

Intel's embedded division (Chandler, AZ) has added LynuxWorks (formerly Lynx Real-Time Systems) to the Intel Applied Computing Platform Provider (ACPP) program. LynuxWorks becomes the first supplier of Embedded Linux — or any Linux, for that matter — to gain entry into the partnership program. Other software companies in the program are Microsoft, Wind River, QNX Software Systems, and VenturCom.

Intel created the concept of “Applied Computing” to promote the use of high performance “Intel architecture” processors and associated chipsets in connected computing applications. According to Intel's developer website . . .

    Applied Computing refers to market segments consisting of connected, high performance systems designed for dedicated applications. Typical traits of applied computing applications are that they are connected via corporate networks, the internet/intranet, wireless or satellite to enhance information systems. The availability of affordable high performance processing and connectivity technology is enabling more intelligence, more utility and more market potential for these traditional embedded applications.
Intel wants developers to work with the companies on the ACPP list in order to speed the design and development process — and probably also to maximize the Intel content of the resulting systems. Intel's website states that the ACPP includes companies that have met a set of strict criteria for quality assurance, manufacturing capacity, design capability, tools and support, and have demonstrated a consistent track record in the areas of business operations, human resources management, materials handling and delivery, employee safety, and worldwide customer support.
