VirtualLogix Inc., a provider of real-time virtualization technology for mobile handsets, has announced that its VLX software solution for mobile handsets has been selected by ST-Ericsson for their new low-cost Android (News - Alert)-ready smartphone platform.

'Virtualization is a key technology for communications infrastructure equipment using multicore DSPs; VirtualLogix (News - Alert) is a leader in providing real-time virtualization for embedded applications,' said Alan Gatherer, CTO, TI’s communications infrastructure and voice group, in a release.

“Our relationship with ST-Ericsson (News - Alert) continues to grow and our VLX software integrated in their reference designs represents another milestone for our mobile virtualization software,” added Glenda Dorchak, vice chairman and CEO, VirtualLogix. “We are proud to support ST-Ericsson’s mainstream solutions for the mobile handset marketplace.”

Incorporating VLX into ST-Ericsson’s affordable reference platforms extends the relationship announced a year ago. VirtualLogix is providing important functionality which results in greater design flexibility and allows the delivery of Android-based solutions.

VirtualLogix’s flagship product, VLX, is virtualization software that de-couples hardware management (ARM and Intel architectures) and application environments (Android, Linux, proprietary, Symbian (News - Alert), Windows), enabling separation of design and functionality concerns. This allows OS/device independence and fault tolerance with minimal overhead, as well as improved performance for multimedia and gaming, and enhanced device security through isolation.

VLX virtualization software allows simultaneous operation of a high-level operating system (Android) and a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), thus enabling easier development of value-added smartphone functionalities on lower cost mobile handset platforms.

VLX enables silicon vendors, original equipment manufactuers (OEMs)/original design manufacturers (ODMs) and mobile network operators to reduce time-to-market and development costs, while allowing product differentiation, without sacrificing software compliance and avoiding costly and risky re-certification.
