Mainz, Paris - SYSGO has launched ELinOS 5.0, a Linux operating system that supports the Texas Instruments OMAP35x Evaluation Module. The new SYSGO support package combines high performance and minimal power levels with industrial grade Linux in a single chip. The package enables rapid development of reliable long-lived applications.
Devices of the OMAP35x family are based on the ARM Cortex-A8 core. Combined with graphics capability and DSP technology, the company claims the family offers one of the best combinations of integrated processing capabilities in any single-chip combination.
They are best suited for applications such as portable navigation devices, portable media players, point of sale, point of services and personal medical equipment. When paired with SYSGO's ELinOS industrial grade Linux operating system, the OMAP35x based platform enables the rapid development of sophisticated reliable systems requiring low power and high performance.
SYSGO's ELinOS board support package for the OMAP35x evaluation module allows developers to fully access and leverage the strengths of the board, including the speed optimized OMAP3530 processor (720MHz ARM Cortex-A8/520MHz C64x+ tm DSP) and 256 MB LPDDR/256 MB NAND Flash.
"With OMAP 3, Texas Instruments has delivered a hardware platform that suits demanding industrial requirements, but complete exploitation of that platform without loss of reliability requires a Linux solution that is up to the challenge", said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing at SYSGO. "SYSGO's ELinOS 5.0 delivers flexibility and efficiency to OMAP 3 developers that are not otherwise possible."
With more than four times the processing power of today's 300MHz ARM9 devices, OMAP35x devices integrate the superscalar Cortex-A8 core and TI's C64x+ DSP into four applications processors: OMAP3503, OMAP3515, OMAP3525, and OMAP3530. The OMAP3530 is available in two versions: 600MHz ARM/430MHz DSP and 720MHz ARM/520MHz DSP to deliver advanced user interface, improved graphics, video and connectivity for applications.
ELinOS 5.0 with support for the OMAP35x evaluation module is available now for Linux and Windows hosted platforms.
