Red Flag to Peddle RTLinux in China

Red Flag to Peddle RTLinux in China

Red Flag, China's Linux darling, will resell and support RTLinuxPro, FSMLabs' hard real-time software, and other products domestically.

FSMLabs and Red Flag plan to work together to jointly develop board support packages for standard embedded systems, development tools and variants of Linux for verticals such as telecommunications.

The Socorro, New Mexico-based FSMLabs has been steadily expanding its presence in the Asian market either directly or through partners. Besides China, it has dropped anchor in Korea, Japan and India.

FSMLabs' CEO Victor Yodaiken brags that the company is doing well in Asia and will double revenues this year but wouldn't disclose details.

RTLinuxPro includes the company's RTCore Posix PS51 robust hard real-time kernel and an embedded Linux development system. RTCore uses a dual-kernel method to run Linux or BSD Unix as applications.

RTLinux is used in a wide range of products including satellite controllers, telescopes, jet engine test stands, routers and industrial automation equipment.

Red Flag has been forging partnerships with companies large and small. It recently agreed to bundle IBM's DB2 Express kit with its Linux software for SMEs.
