Energy Micro and Pengutronix unveil energy friendly Linux for ARM Cortex-M3

Energy Micro assisted and supported Pengutronix to complete the port to the Giant Gecko MCU range, a leading family of low-energy microcontrollers.

By using µClinux engineers can reduce design cycles and accelerate time-to-market because they can gain access to ready-made system functions such as IP connectivity, file systems, and multi-tasking. Users can employ a broad range of free software and drivers available as open source, within a robust and portable open source framework.

The Embedded Linux/Microcontroller project is a port of Linux designed for systems without a memory management unit (MMU). The OS is suitable for embedded use giving applications access to a rich set of free libraries and core OS services. Designers can choose which functionality to include in their systems, allowing them to trade sophistication with code footprint – often a critical factor in embedded designs.
