Enea and Timesys recently announced a strategic alliance focused on Linux and multicore. 

Now known as the Enea Linux PlatformBuilder, the NetLogic Microsystems Edition (ELPB-NE) is now available for the XLP, XLR and XLS multicore processors.   

The ELPB-NE is described as a full featured Linux development environment that takes the developer from jumpstarting their project, into development and through to deployment.  The product contains an Eclipse-based framework offering a C/C++ development tool and GDB source level debugging tools. 

Timesys LinuxLink, described as a proven environment with over 10 years of use and hundreds of customers, has been chosen for its easy configuration and build of the embedded Linux root file system. 

An integrated pre-built SDK optimized for NetLogic Microsystems’ XLP, XLR and XLS processors, rounds out the package. 

The integrated platform is available, free of charge, from both Enea and NetLogic. An optional, annual subscription with support if available from Enea’s global technical support team.  Subscribers also get access to Timesys repository to utilize 1000+ tested, integrated Linux application packages, all verified for embedded cross compile.  

Also available in the repository are other run-time components like rich multimedia libraries, carrier grade Linux extensions and others. To fully explore and test different implementations, LinuxLink Web Edition serves as a “sandbox” for trial builds and configurations on Timesys cloud servers. 

For those looking to get up to speed or extend their knowledge, training modules and videos are available.
Enea also offers wide range of proprietary software technology including realtime operating systems and development tools to complement Linux on multicore processors, as well as value add custom services in conjunction including custom platform development, board bring up and test and platform maintenance.
