Development of a diverse range of network communications and PC/computing applications such as multi-function peripherals and digital cameras is made easier with eCos (Embedded Cygnus Operating System), an open-source, royalty-free application-specific progam designed for Fujitsu's SPARC*lite family of microprocessors. Based on the open-source software model, eCos is said to eliminate run-time royalties while providing maximum control for embedded product developers. The operating system is targeted at high-volume usage in consumer electronics, telecommunications, automotive, and other deeply embedded products.The SPARC*lite series of embedded RISC processors is suited for use in hubs, routers, bridges, and ATM switches, as well as laser printer, scanners and multi-function peripherals.
