Been There, Done That
- FirmWorks Supports Linux System Development and Bringup
You've got a real OS, now get some real firmware! Linux is open-source, but not platform independent. There are lots of Linux reference ports out there. But you have to port Linux to your own new hardware, on a tight schedule. Rewriting and debugging the low level Linux startup code can be a pretty daunting task. Using Open Firmware from FirmWorks can reduce your Linux porting effort by weeks! (Spare me the hype!)
Here's What We Do
- Network Computer Launch Support
Digital Equipment Corporation recommended the use of FirmWorks's Open Firmware as the boot firmware for network computer designs based upon DEC's StrongARM-based Digital Network Appliance Reference Design (DNARD). Find out why FirmWorks can help you get your network computer products to market faster. Contact us.
- Anyone Remember PR*P/CHRP?
FirmWorks was instrumental in the development of firmware for and bringup of PowerPC-based reference platforms for AIM Alliance members IBM and Motorola. FirmWorks's Open Firmware made possible booting of both Windows NT and Mac OS on those platforms - an industry first!
