The innovative technology company, AMD, has just announced that it has joined the Linux Foundation's MeeGo open source Linux project at the MeeGo Conference 2010 in Dublin. The company shall offer engineering expertise, projected to assist in establishing the technical foundations for next-generation mobile platforms and embedded devices.

Corporate VP for software development at AMD, Ben Bar-Haim says, "We are glad to provide engineering resources to joint industry efforts like MeeGo and expect that this operating system will help drive our embedded plans and create expanded market opportunities for our forthcoming Accelerated Processing Units."

Meanwhile, executive director of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin states, "Built from the ground up for a whole new class of mobile computing devices, MeeGo gives companies like AMD and its partners unlimited opportunities to accelerate innovation for the next generation of computing. As an existing Linux Foundation member, AMD will be an important and valuable contributor to the MeeGo Project."

The MeeGo Linux-based open-source operating system is primarily created for mobile hardware platforms such as ultra-mobile notebooks, tablets, embedded in-vehicle infotainment systems and smart phones. It merges the Moblin project and Maemo, thereby integrating the experience and skills of two significant development ecosystems versed in communications and computing technologies. The project is hosted by the Linux Foundation, a non-profit consortium committed in fostering the growth of Linux. Currently, AMD is a gold level member of the Linux Foundation and holds a seat on the foundation's board of directors.
