Zuken announces support for Linux in next version of CR-5000
Sep 25, 2006
Zuken has announced that Linux will be supported as a new operating system in the next version of CR-5000 in addition to HP-UX, Solaris, and Windows, which are currently supported as standard operating platforms.
In response to the growing demand for support of Linux by organizations across the globe, particularly in Europe and America, the soon to be announced revision 9.0 of CR-5000 Board Designer, part of the robust and scalable enterprise wide solution CR-5000, will support the open sourced operating system.
Zuken's business in the semiconductor and packaging related fields and in Western markets is on the rise. Following specific requests, the development was completed to implement support for Linux. The organizations and industry sectors listed below are set to enjoy immediate benefits:
* Major mobile communication companies in Europe
* Major semiconductor companies in Asia and Japan
* Major Package/SIP companies in Asia and Japan
* Major military & electronics companies in America
The source code of CR-5000 has been ported to Linux from scratch, rather than just emulating the Windows or Unix version in Linux. In this way it was possible to leverage the performance and features of Linux to the maximum extent possible. As the compatibility has been maintained with the database of the existing Windows and Unix versions, mixed operation is also achievable. The use of Linux with version 9.0 of CR-5000 Board Designer has been evaluated by a partner organization and will be available in the near future at the standard Board Designer price.
