Timesys reiterates support for Freescale Vybrid Controller Solutions with software for new Quartz board

Pittsburgh, PA – February 26, 2014 — Timesys LLC (https://timesys.com), provider of easy-to-use and affordable embedded Linux solutions and world-class professional services and training, and Device Solutions, designer and developer of System on Module (SoM) for industrial, medical and automotive applications, today announced the addition of a Timesys LinuxLink PRO Edition release for developers targeting the Device Solutions Quartz SoM for Freescale Vybrid controller solutions. In keeping with other software releases for Freescale Vybrid controller solutions, Timesys will offer this new LinuxLink PRO Edition, which includes full support, at no charge to developers building embedded devices around Vybrid controller solutions.

As a leader in embedded Linux software development, Timesys continues to extend software support for the Freescale Vybrid controller solutions ecosystem. With LinuxLink PRO Edition for Device Solutions’ Quartz Development Kit, developers have access to the easiest-to-use software available for embedded Linux development. This fully supported subscription includes both the award-winning LinuxLink PRO Edition and Timesys’ TimeStorm IDE — providing a highly integrated development environment and toolset that makes it an ideal solution for developers wanting to leverage the multi-core, multi-processing architecture of Freescale Vybrid controller solutions and easily build applications requiring rich-human interfaces and real-time connectivity.

“Timesys is fully committed to supporting Freescale Vybrid controller solutions. We continue to focus on supporting the ecosystem and innovative products like the Device Solutions Quartz Development Kit. Freescale Vybrid controller solutions developers have a huge value in software available for them — software that otherwise can cost upwards of $5000 per seat,” said Atul Bansal, CEO of Timesys. “Due to our unique relationship with Freescale and the Vybrid controller solutions ecosystem, we are excited to extend support to include the Device Solutions Quartz SoM as an interesting option for embedded developers.”

The Quartz SoM is the world’s smallest Vybrid based module. It is available in two variants — a 45mm x 35mm x 7mm package with board-to-board connectors, and a 35mm x 35mm x 3mm LGA surface-mount package for space constrained and high-vibration environments. The module is supported by a development kit which includes standard Ethernet, USB, serial, audio and SD card connections, along with CAN, digital and analog IO and analog video in features. It can be purchased with an optional 7″ TFT LCD and also supports LVDS displays including a 10.1″ panel with capacitive touch input. Visit http://devicesolutions.net/quartz for more information.

“Device Solutions is very pleased to be working with Timesys as the experts in Linux on the Freescale Vybrid part.” said Martin Welford, CEO of Device Solutions. “Their development tools and support give our customers the best possible start on development with Linux on Quartz.”
