Lineo's software development kit for embedded developers and device manufacturers is now available.
At the Embedded Systems Conference in Maastricht, The Netherlands, Lineo announced the shipment of their Embedix<+H>tm<+H> SDK 1.2. This release adds several important features for developers to the kit, including processor support for the Power PC processor family.
This kit creates an integrated development environment and has real-time capabilities. Embedix SDK 1.2 includes Metrowerks CodeWarrior, combining an editor, compiler, linker and debugger into one integrated application. Another important feature, Target Wizard<+H>tm<+H>, is an automated way to select all of the requirements for a target image quickly and easily and check for software interdependencies. With this fine-tuning, developers can optimize to the smallest possible software image, which then requires less hardware and allows gains in economies of scale.
Embedix UI (a separate module) provides the option to develop a fully customizable and brandable HTML-based user interface. It is especially well suited for controlled-content embedded devices such as Kiosks, webpads and Smart appliances.
Model: Embedix SDK 1.2 (Japanese release: Embedix SDK 1.2-J)
Suggested retail price: $5,000/one developer seat license
Efficiently manage battery-powered devices.
SoftTools Technology has announced another development in their Smart Battery System line, SBS<+H>3<+H>: Smart Battery System Software. It provides a common manager support layer across platforms, is OEM configurable and supports different types of system configurations.
SBS solutions are designed to optimize the information available by gathering data from a complex series of low-level driver and bus information combined with ``smart'' software to allow users to utilize the system. This system will maximize battery life by setting different hardware components in the computer to ``sleep'' and managing the power consumption of the entire device, increasing the overall system operating time. SBS<+H>3<+H> provides support for, such features as battery recalibration and composite information reporting of simultaneous battery charging/discharging.
This solution is a part of SoftTools' focus on reducing the design and manufacturing cost of hardware components by moving functionality out of the hardware and into the software design.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
