SYSGO's ELinOS is supporting Miele's new Generation 6000

SYSGO, a leading supplier of software solutions for the world’s most demanding safety and security embedded applications, announced the involvement of its Industrial Grade Linux ELinOS in the new generation of built-in kitchen appliances from Miele, world leader in the field of premium domestic appliances.

Mid of January Miele presented their new generation of built-in kitchen appliances at the LivingKitchen trade show in Cologne. The presentation of the new Generation 6000 attracted wide interest among the audience. Products are ranging from ovens, steam cookers and coffee machines to microwave ovens. The new generation stands for even greater elegance, versatility and user convenience in the kitchen. New functionalities and a cross-product design are major improvements especially in terms of user friendliness.

With its Embedded Linux ELinOS, SYSGO delivered major components and provided important tools that could easily be integrated into the Miele software development environment. Short compilation times, the unique ”Embedded Linux Konfiguration” (ELK) tool and the ability to integrate Adobe Flash Lite into ELinOS were the main reasons that convinced Miele’s engineers. As Miele knew from the beginning that the development of their new product generation would take several years, the need of a reliable partner was mandatory. 

“We decided to go that long term development path with SYSGO as they have many years of experience with Linux used in industrial equipments. We have been pleased by the competence and reliability of the SYSGO team who provided excellent engineering services as well as the usability of the ELinOS product”, said Detlef Niehaus, Head of Electronic Component Development at Miele & Cie. KG.

“With the Generation 6000 Miele sets new standards in terms of design and handling. We are very proud that we could help to develop such a promising product generation and we are looking forward to continuing our successful collaboration in the future”, said Gregor Braun, Key Account Manager at SYSGO.
