VersaLogic Corp. has released a Linux quick-start Board Support Package (BSP) for its AMD LX 800-based EBX board, the Python.

The BSP allows developers to configure their systems quickly and develop applications in a shorter time frame. The package is based on the Debian Linux OS, which has been configured for easy installation and support of the Python's hardware features.

With the BSP install CD, hardware setup is streamlined by eliminating the need for OS configuration and driver installation by the system developer. The package provides support for basic functions including Ethernet, audio, video, USB ports and serial ports. The Debian Linux OS can be used during system development to explore the capabilities of the Python, or it can be used as the base OS in the target system.

The Python features fanless operation, very low power draw (5W), and is RoHS compatible. Target markets include medical, avionics, and security/homeland defense.
