Freescale Semiconductor's Networking and Computing Systems Group (NCSG) has joined the TimeSys Corp.'s OnBoard program. The company aims to continuously make the latest Freescale-developed Linux optimizations for Freescale products based on the PowerPC architecture available to OEMs/ODMs in commercially supported TimeStorm Linux development kits (LDKs) from TimeSys.

The OnBoard Program is the embedded Linux industry's most comprehensive program for hosting, certifying, distributing and supporting commercialized Linux distributions. Through the OnBoard program, TimeSys will continuously package, maintain and support TimeStorm Linux development kits (LDKs) with the latest Freescale-developed enhancements for the PowerPC architecture, which is an integral part of embedded devices used in networking, communications, military, storage and pervasive computing applications.

The first Freescale-optimized TimeStorm LDKs delivered through the OnBoard program are now available for Freescale's MPC8555E, MPC8560 and MPC8272 processors. All TimeStorm LDKs include complete 2.6-based embedded Linux distributions with ready-to-run target images (kernel and root file system) and the Eclipse 3.0-based TimeStorm Linux Development Suite (LDS) cross-development environment to facilitate application development, as well as kernel and device driver platform customization.
