Xilinx acquires PetaLogix to strengthen its embedded computing applications offerings

SAN JOSE, Calif., 29 Aug. 2012. Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), a provider of programmable devices, has acquired embedded Linux solutions provider PetaLogix. As Linux solutions become more popular for a growing number of embedded applications relying on Xilinx technologies, the addition of PetaLogix and their PetaLinux technology strengthens Xilinx's capabilities to provide the best Linux solutions possible.

PetaLogix was founded in 2005 by Dr. John Williams when he was a Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, before spinning out as a privately held company in 2007. PetaLinux SDK, the flagship product of PetaLogix, is an embedded Linux solution that is based on proprietary technology that was developed and purchased from the University of Queensland and now deployed at many communications, automotive, medical and industrial companies.

The PetaLinux Embedded Linux SDK contains everything needed to build, develop, test and deploy embedded Linux based projects targeting Xilinx FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs, a family of devices that integrate an ARM-based processing system with programmable logic. With ASIC levels of performance and power consumption, the new Zynq-7000 devices combine FPGA flexibility with the ease of programming a microprocessor to accommodate programmable system integration, increased system performance, BOM reduction and ultimately increasedi design productivity.
