Wind River Systems Inc. will be holding a seminar on commercial grade Linux platforms for consumer devices today at the 6th Annual Embedded Systems Conference-Taiwan (ESC-Taiwan). ESC-Taiwan and the collocated 14th Annual EDA & Test-Taiwan Conference & Exhibition (EDA&T-Taiwan) will run until tomorrow at the Taipei International Convention Center.

Wind River will be showcasing platforms for network equipment, and consumer, automotive and industrial devices. According to the company, its platforms can reduce effort, cost and risk, as well as optimize quality and reliability at all phases of the device software development process, from concept to deployed product.

The Platform for Consumer Devices, Linux Edition, is based on a Linux 2.6.10 kernel implementation. It includes integrated patches and packages for enhanced networking and security requirements, as well as CELF specifications for fast boot-up time, small footprint and performance features and functionality. Wind River added that this platform offers a "pristine source" distribution that gives maximum visibility in which packages and patches have been applied.

Open source community
Device software customers are under tremendous time-to-market pressures and often are trying to leverage the latest and greatest technologies from the open source community to deliver new features in their products, Wind River said. That is why the company's commercial grade Linux provides full transparency of the Open Source environment in their distributions. Wind River includes the source exactly as it is found in the Open Source community.
