| Freescale Semiconductor and Flextronics are shipping a jointly developed 
| reference design for an 802.11n WiFi access point. The MPC8377EWLAN 802.11N 
| Access Point RDS is based on Freescale's newly sampling PowerQUICC II Pro 
| MPC8377E processor, offers 300Mbps throughput, and ships with a Linux BSP and

An interview with Jim Ready

| We can all be quite proud of the enormous progress Linux has made in
| transforming the embedded OS marketplace from one which was highly fragmented
| and largely devoid of standards, to an environment based upon a highly
| functional OS which is a truly open standard: Linux.


Linux prominent in chip show awards

| Timesys won Best in Show at the 2008 Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) for its
| Online Linux Factory. San Juan Software won the other Best in Show for its
| ZigBee controller platform, and Nuvation won an award for an
| air-hockey-playing "Flexis AC Face-off" robot (pictured).


Why Linux won the embedded market?

,----[ Quote ]
| One story not told often enough involves Linux’ growing domination of the
| embedded market.
| In this space Linux usually stacks up against older Real Time Operating
| Systems (RTOS). The decision by Wind River, the largest RTOS vendor, to
| migrate toward Linux was a turning point.
| There has been no turning back. But this is not an open source story. In
| fact, the embedded Linux business looks a lot like the rest of the embedded
| market.
