DENX Computer Systems ships the new QONG EVB-Lite. Based on the i.MX31 CPU the board was developed as an extended version of the QONG processor module. The "heart" of the board consists by the QONG module itself; surrounded by a PCB extension that provides native connectors for most common I/O interfaces.
More information on the QONG EVB-Lite is available in our product page

Embedded Linux Development Kit 4.2 for ARM11

Tue Nov 25 2008

DENX today announced a new release of its Embedded Linux Development Kit (ELDK Release 4.2) for ARM processors. This new versions targets especially for ARM11 and other systems with hardware floating point support, like the Freescale i.MX31 or Samsung S3C6400 processors. Another important new feature is support for the Embedded Application Binary Interface (EABI) standard.

The DENX Embedded Linux Development Kit provides a complete and powerful software development environment for Embedded and Real-Time Systems:

All components of the ELDK are available as Free Software with complete source code under GPL and other Open Source licenses . The ELDK can be downloaded from the DENX FTP server and from several mirror sites. A mailing list for ELDK related discussion is available here.

Xenomai/SOLO - RTOS emulation for standard Linux

DENX Software Engineering is proud to announce Xenomai/SOLO, the new RTOS emulator that runs as a normal user-space application on a standard Linux kernel. Of course, when timing requirements have to be met, a real-time capable Linux kernel with the PREEMPT_RT support enabled should be used.

Philippe Gerum, the author of the code, writes:

Some weeks ago, I started laying the groundwork for porting the Xenomai emulators natively over the PREEMPT_RT kernel. Unlike the co-kernel based Xenomai version, SOLO does not require any kernel support from additional modules or patches. It is fully based on the standard POSIX library, and runs as a regular process controlled by a single image Linux kernel.

As a first step, a VxWorks emulator has just been rebuilt over this new framework.

This framework is not another window-dressing of the existing Xenomai 2.x core, but really something 100% redesigned and rewritten for running on a native real-time Linux implementation, while keeping the opportunity to adapt it back to a co-kernel system. At some point, I'd like to make both the native and co-kernel Xenomai incarnations converge on the basis of this new core interface for Xenomai 3, so that we would be able to share the APIs between them. In short, SOLO is a necessary intermediate step on the road to Xenomai 3.

This work has been co-sponsored by the OSADL and DENX Software Engineering.

For details, please see the README.

You can pull the whole code from git:// resp. or browse it online.

Realtime Test Results and Getting Started with Xenomai

Mon Mar 17 2008

To demonstrate the realtime capabilities available with Xenomai on a typical Power Architecture® embedded platform we developed the gpioirqbench test setup measuring response times to external stimuli. The setup also works with RT preempt and "standard" Linux kernels allowing for easy comparison of the total system response times.

Geared for an easy start with Xenomai an Application Note describing in a cookbook style how to compile and run Xenomai with our Linux tree has been made available in our application notes area also.
