Xilinx Inc. has announced the acquisition of PetaLogix, an embedded Linux solutions provider. According to the company, the addition of PetaLogix and their PetaLinux technology strengthens Xilinx's capabilities and commitment to customers to provide the best Linux solutions possible.

"PetaLogix has been a key player behind the growing adoption of Xilinx programmable technologies within the embedded market, first providing a Linux distribution for MicroBlaze and PowerPC processors, and now a Linux distribution and tool chain for the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC," said Tomas Evensen, chief scientist for embedded software at Xilinx. "With their technology, tool set and expertise, the PetaLogix team is uniquely positioned to help Xilinx further shorten time-to-market and aggressively drive growth in the embedded space, and across all key vertical market segments we serve."

PetaLinux SDK, the flagship product of PetaLogix, is an embedded Linux solution that is based on advanced proprietary technology that was developed and purchased from the University of Queensland and now deployed at many leading-edge communications, automotive, medical and industrial companies, noted the company.

The PetaLinux Embedded Linux SDK contains everything needed to build, develop, test and deploy embedded Linux based projects targeting Xilinx FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs, a family of devices that tightly integrate an ARM-based processing system with leading-edge programmable logic. With ASIC levels of performance and power consumption, the Zynq-7000 devices combine FPGA flexibility with the ease of programming a microprocessor to accommodate programmable system integration, increased system performance, BOM reduction and ultimately accelerated design productivity.
