“Our Industrial Grade Linux product is from the beginning clearly targeting the embedded Linux applications that need to be as reliable as possible and easy to develop and deploy”, said Matthias Loetzke, Director User Experience at SYSGO. “As a member of the OSADL, we are pleased to add to our usual testing process the tremendous experience and knowledge brought by this consortium.”
Months before its official release, ELinOS 6.0 has been integrated into the OSADL Realtime QA Farm, a set of industrial boards and Linux programs configured to perform quality checking. The pre-release of ELinOS is running on a phyFLEX i.MX 6 platform from Phytec. SYSGO provides a Board Support Package (BSP) based on the mainline Linux kernel without vendor specific patches or proprietary device drivers for i.MX6 boards. This enables SYSGO to use up-to-date kernel versions for this CPU.
ELinOS industrial grade Linux provides the PREEMPT_RT real-time patches based on OSADL's recommendation. These recommendations are the result of long-term testing for stability and performance at the OSADL QA Farm. The tests have already been started in order to overview a long enough time period prior to the scheduled ELinOS release in June 2014. They reveal very promising results.
