TrygTechhas released a Linux board support package (BSP) for Device Solutions Topaz i.MX25 CPU Module.
OEMs will be able to bring consumer and industrial electronic products to market at lower cost with this BSP.
The BSP will feature a powerful Freescale (News - Alert) i.MX25 ARM based 400 MHz processor with flash memory, Ethernet PHY; and a Freescale power management are combined by the Topaz i.MX25 CPU Module.
Therefore it is perfect for the automotive, Industrial and general embedded markets. The i.MX25 can be evaluated by the Device Solutions Topaz i.MX25 CPU module comes in a development kit. New designs can also be prototyped with this module.
Developers will be able to get these prototypes up and running quickly with optimized performance with the launch of the Linux BSP from TrygTech.
In a release, Martin Welford, CEO of Device Solutions Ltd. said, “We are very pleased to have TrygTech develop the Linux board support package for us. TrygTech has a deep technical knowledge of embedded devices and knows how important it is to optimize a BSP in order to have designs to run at full performance levels. They also provide a very high level of support and documentation which allows engineers to focus their efforts on their own end-product development.”
According to Julie Trygstad, vice president of engineering at TrygTech, the BSP has to correctly interface the specific hardware to the specific operating system. Her company understands that need.
Trygstad added, “We’ve seen clients struggle with sub-optimized support and documentation, causing them to lose time and incur cost in developing additional low-level code to get their devices to run. The goal of TrygTech is to assure that it’s done correctly the first time. We do that by providing the level of documentation needed by the design engineers.”Calvin Azuri is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
