    White Paper: MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition

    Staff (MontaVista)
    One example is enough to illustrate the potential impact network failures can have. In 1991, a packet-switched network failed. This failure caused hundreds of millions of dollars in financial losses, knocked out air traffic control in the New York City region for over 8 hours, and disrupted 85,000 t... [read more]

    White Paper: Building Embedded Linux Systems Using System Builder

    Christopher Hallinan, Technical Marketing Enginer (Mentor Graphics Corporation)
    Few doubt that Linux now dominates the embedded systems marketplace. Linux has found its way into nearly every product segment, from consumer electronics to the "big iron" boxes used to power global wireless and landline networks. It is not a stretch of one's imagination to assume that many modern h... [read more]

    White Paper: Bootstrapping Linux from NAND Flash with FlashFX Tera and Reliance Nitro

    Bill Roman (Datalight, Inc.)
    The process of getting an embedded system from initial power-on state to fully operational can seem complicated, especially when it involves Linux and NAND flash. Fortunately, Linux has developed a versatile set of techniques that accommodate a wide range of system configurations. This paper include... [read more]
