Critical Link and Timesys Corporation have formed a partnership that will provide developers building embedded devices around the Critical Link MityDSP-L138(F) System-on-Module (SoM) with an easy-to-use, affordable Linux toolset that enables maximum embedded platform and application customisation and reduces time to market.

Critical Link's MityDSP-L138(F) is designed for those looking to supplement ARM with DSP processing. It features the dual-core OMAP-L138 DSP + ARM9 processor, which includes a C674x fixed-and floating-point DSP from Texas Instruments. When combined with the optional on-board Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA, the MityDSP-L138(F) can be used for cost-sensitive applications requiring fixed function co-processing and power management in markets. In addition, there are also plans for LinuxLink to be supported on Critical Link's MityARM-1808, a SoM-based on TI's Sitara AM1808 processor. LinuxLink is currently available on the MityARM-3359, based on TI's Sitara AM3359 processor.

Timesys' LinuxLink for MityDSP-L138(F) enables quick and easy design, development, deployment and debugging of an embedded product based on open source Linux. MityDSP-L138(F) developers can download a free board support package and matching software development kit (BSP/SDK) and get support for build and boot issues by registering for a LinuxLink FREE Edition account. For developers requiring maximum customisation and control of their Linux platform and value-add application, Timesys' commercially supported LinuxLink Pro Edition provides developers with a comprehensive development toolset, and it includes unmetered, expert support for all phases of their product development lifecycle.
