Arcom offers improved security features with latest Embedded Linux / Java Development Kit for GX1 based embedded PC

12/19/2002 - Arcom announced that it has updated its Development Kit for Embedded Linux with JavaTM Technology for the 300MHz GeodeTM based SBC-GX1 single board computer. The SBC-GX1 Embedded Linux/Java development kit offers a compact, high reliability implementation of Linux for developing and deploying C or Java based embedded control and communication products. The implementation is based on a proven, well supported distribution of the Linux kernel offering standard file hierarchy, shell and text utilities.

These are integrated with a rugged compressed Journaling Flash Filing System (JFFS2) to achieve maximum system integrity for truly embedded applications. The Development Kit now integrates a standard installation of Open-SSH (Secure-SHell) allowing a wide range of encryption and authentication techniques to be utilized between the SBC-GX1 and a host server. Also, to reflect the current IBM Java releases, the Development Kit is now supplied with the latest WebSphere Studio Device Developer tools, replacing the previous VisualAge Micro Edition toolset.

The GNU/Linux operating system uses the proven 2.4 kernel and has been optimized for use on Arcom hardware platforms. This comprehensive Development Kit includes the SBC-GX1 single board computer fitted with 64bytes DRAM and 16Mbytes of Flash, PSU, serial and Ethernet cable set, Quickstart Manual and the Development Kit Utility CD. For those developing with embedded Java, the Kit includes an evaluation copy of IBM's WebSphere Studio Device Developer IDE development tools.

The SBC-GX1 EBX format (5.75 x 8) single board computer is powered by the 300MHz National Semiconductor Geode GX1 processor and is targeted at fan-less systems. The board offers graphics accelerated CRT and TFT flat panel support, 10/100baseTx Ethernet, four serial ports, and expansion via a PCI slot, CompactFlash socket and industry standard PC/104.
