Wind River says it has partnered with Freescale's network processor group to ensure that its embedded Linux tools and vertical market platforms support Freescale's latest PowerPC and PowerQUICC processors. Wind River's Carrier Grade Linux offering, Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition, supports a Freescale PowerPC-based AdvancedTCA platform from Artesyn Technologies.

Additionally, Wind River says it has partnered with Artesyn to offer a Carrier Grade Linux product for Artesyn's AdvancedTCA boards based on Freescale processors, such as the KatanaQP.

Wind River says its Eclipse-based Workbench tools support a range of development activities, from board bring-up to application development, when used with the latest Freescale PowerQUICC II Pro and PowerQUICC III communications processor families, including the MPC8548E. In addition to Linux, Workbench supports VxWorks, Express Logic's small-footprint ThreadX, and other third-party and proprietary in-house operating systems, Wind River says.

Wind River offers Linux-based vertical market stacks that include Platform for Network Equipment and a General Purpose Platform. The company aims to make Linux an option on all its Platform products, including its telematics, consumer devices, industrial devices, and server appliances platforms.

Freescale's GM of Networking and Computing Systems, David Perkins, said, “By using Wind River Workbench to integrate our PowerQUICC and PowerPC families with Wind River's platforms, including Wind River Platform for Network Equipment, we are able to offer our customers a state-of-the-art, fully optimized device development solution.”
