Linuxdevices.com raksta par FSMLabs izstrādāto speciālo linux versiju priekš ierīcēm, kas darbojas ar integrētu IBM PowerPC 405GP procesoru. Optimizējot kodu un izravējot visas liekās pārbaudes tiek panākta sistēmas ielāde zem 200ms.
Real-time Linux vendor FSMLabs reports that it has created a version of Linux that radically speeds up system boot time — to less than 200 milliseconds (ms) from power-up to application code startup. The techniques are processor independent, and boot times of under 100 ms are expected in the future.
The first FSMLabs product based on its new fast boot technology is an RTLinux developers kit for a single-board computer from Embedded Planet based on IBM’s PowerPC 405GP embedded processor. That board can boot in less than 200 ms from flash memory onto a very basic RAMdisk that includes bash, mount, ls, psutils, and GNU libc (not uclibc or diet-libc).
