Specifications Lead Embedded Linux Consortium to SD Times 100 List

6/5/2003 - The editors of SD Times have named the Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC) to the first annual SD Times 100 list. The ELC is a global trade association dedicated to the promotion, implementation and standardization of the Linux operating system for embedded applications.

"The SD Times 100 looked for companies which set a direction that developers and the industry followed in 2002" said Alan Zeichick, editor-in-chief of SD Times. "When choosing the SD Times 100, we carefully considered each company's offerings and reputation, as well as the attention and conversation we've heard around the company and its products and technologies, as a sign of leadership within the industry."

Specifically regarding the ELC, which was recognized in the Standards Bodies & Consortia category, the editors wrote, "All key vendors collaborate to unify and enhance the platform."

ELC Executive Director Murry Shohat said, “We are delighted to be recognized by the SD Times 100. The credit goes to an exhaustive volunteer effort that was mounted by our members under the guidance of Mark Brown of IBM and Mitch Bunnell of LynuxWorks. Other contributors to the specification include Samsung Electronics, MontaVista Software, Panasonic, Red Hat Software, Wipro Technologies and several independent developers from the open source community. Congratulations to all.”
