AdaCore and SYSGO announce GNAT Pro for ELinOS Ada now available for embedded Linux

AdaCore, provider of high quality Ada tools and support, and SYSGO, provider of operating systems and development tools for embedded systems, today announced the availability of GNAT Pro for ELinOS, SYSGO's embedded Linux development environment for industrial applications. GNAT Pro for ELinOS combines the reliability of Ada, the productivity of the GNAT Pro toolset and the AdaCore support with the flexibility and modularity of ELinOS.

Due to the diversity of Linux, developing a Linux-based application can be a complicated process: From component selection, to developing board support packages and device drivers, to testing the entire system. ELinOS Industrial Grade Linux streamlines and automates this process so that software developers can concentrate fully on the application on the target system. ELinOS includes all the tools necessary to assemble and build the system software, including a graphical configuration tool with integrated system validation.

"AdaCore and SYSGO form an ideal partnership," says Jacques Brygier, Vice President of Marketing at SYSGO, "AdaCore has built a great reputation with excellent technology and outstanding support. GNAT Pro and ELinOS will satisfy our customers' demanding needs for Ada for embedded Linux."

"Developing large-scale embedded systems is a difficult task and developers need appropriate tools to manage the complexity," said Robert Dewar, President and CEO at AdaCore. "ELinOS is an excellent complement to GNAT Pro in meeting these needs, and SYSGO's corporate philosophy, with its emphasis on customer support, aligns with ours. The growing interest in embedded Linux in a market that simultaneously demands productivity, reliability and efficiency makes GNAT Pro a promising combination for ELinOS."

Pricing and Availability

GNAT Pro for ELinOS is available as an extension to the AdaCore GNAT Pro development environment. Subscription pricing for GNAT Pro starts at $14,000. The latest pricing and support information is available from AdaCore.
