Xilinx Acquires Embedded Linux Solutions Provider PetaLogix

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --   Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the acquisition of embedded Linux solutions provider PetaLogix. As Linux solutions become must-haves for a growing number of embedded applications relying on Xilinx All Programmable technologies, the addition of PetaLogix and their PetaLinux technology strengthens Xilinx's capabilities and commitment to customers to provide the best Linux solutions possible.

"PetaLogix has been a key player behind the growing adoption of Xilinx programmable technologies within the embedded market, first providing a Linux distribution for MicroBlaze™ and PowerPC® processors, and now a Linux distribution and tool chain for the Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC," said Tomas Evensen, chief scientist for embedded software at Xilinx. "With their technology, tool set and expertise, the PetaLogix team is uniquely positioned to help Xilinx further shorten time-to-market and aggressively drive growth in the embedded space, and across all key vertical market segments we serve."

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 advanced proprietary technology that was developed and purchased from the University of Queensland and now deployed at many leading-edge communications, automotive, medical and industrial companies.

"Our two companies have worked successfully on many engagements to provide joint processing and Linux OS solutions to customers and we're thrilled to be part of Xilinx's commitment to embedded Linux," said Dr. Williams. "The PetaLogix commercial Linux distribution and the Embedded Linux SDK tool provides a user-friendly approach that is aligned to what most developers need to get their jobs done without becoming deep Linux experts or be tied to a fixed BSP model."
