VirtualLogix Announces Release of VLX Solution for Intel Atom Processor Z530 for Embedded Applications
VirtualLogix™, Inc., a leading provider of real-time virtualization software solutions, today announced the release of its VLX virtualization software solution for the Intel® Atom™ processor Z530 platform for embedded applications. VLX enables faster, more secure integration of the Intel platform into connected embedded device designs such as in-vehicle infotainment systems and industrial automation and control applications.

Support of the Intel Atom processor Z530 on VLX software will enable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to:

  • Leverage the optimized low power technology and performance advancements of the processor without the operational and cost constraints associated with migration;
  • Convert and converge multiple OS environments on a common platform, reducing Bill of Materials;
  • Securely isolate the mission-critical execution domains from the less trustworthy ones; and
  • Innovate while meeting tight time-to-market deadlines, maintaining a flexible and scalable infrastructure that allows them to continue to evolve during this lifecycle without sacrificing performance or trust.

“This latest VLX solution delivers a development platform for OEMs that will allow them to bring products to market faster,” said Glenda Dorchak, Vice Chairman and CEO, VirtualLogix. “The Intel® Atom™ processor Z530 enables embedded customers to deliver solutions that improve power management, performance, security and serviceability.”

“Due to the benefits of Intel® architecture, the Intel Atom processor Z530 is being used in a vast array of designs in addition to Netbooks and MIDs, including retail, gaming and medical solutions,” said Jonathan Luse, Director of Marketing, Low Power Embedded Products Division, Intel. “Our well-supported software ecosystem, including VirtualLogix VLX real-time virtualization, delivers a flexible combination of software execution environments, shortening time-to-market for device OEMs incorporating Intel Atom processors.”

With the promise of a rapidly expanding ecosystem of mobile and connected applications once only available on the desktop, a number of fast-growing market segments are adopting embedded Internet devices. Viewing this market as an opportunity of greater than $10 billion by 2011, Intel predicts that an additional 15 billion devices will connect to the Internet by 2015.
