SBE Announces the Availability of TimeSys Certified Linux Drivers for Five of its Top Selling PMC Modules

9/19/2002 - SBE, a leading supplier of specialized communications and networking processing solutions, announced that its top selling PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) modules are now available with TimeSys Linux Certified software drivers. Designed to support a variety of I/O interfaces, the SBE WAN connectivity modules highlighted by this announcement include the wanPMC-2T3E3, wanPMC-1T3, wanPMC-C4T1E1, wanPMC-1SSI and wanPMC-1HSSI. These modules provide T3, E3, T1, E1, synchronous serial and high-speed synchronous serial interface connections, for communications and connectivity applications.

SBE's wanPMC modules and TimeSys Linux provide the ultimate in hardware/software for communications solutions. Unlike other implementations, TimeSys Linux incorporates real time technology directly in the Linux kernel. It contains a new fully preemptable priority based scheduler that handles thousands of priority levels and supports scheduled and priority-based interrupt handling.

"SBE has long been committed to both the open source and real time communities," said Dan Grey, SBE's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Our partnership with TimeSys has allowed us to incorporate the best features of both open source and real time operating systems into an increasing range of SBE's products."

As an example of the flexibility of SBE's communications solutions, the wanPMC modules can be paired with SBE's recently released HighWire 400p/M PCI core processing platform, featuring a developer's kit for TimeSys Linux. Systems integrators can rapidly develop multiple product configurations that address a variety of I/O requirements by reusing the HW400p/M core platform with different modules.
