Ampro Debuts Ubuntu-Based Embedded Linux

Ampro Computers Inc. has introduced Ampro Embedded Linux to support the company’s line of board-level embedded computers. Derived from Ubuntu packages, an increasingly popular form of Linux, Ampro Embedded Linux is a free, open-source, reduced-footprint operating system. It is enhanced with device-oriented features such as its default touch-enabled Hildon graphical user interface (GUI) and other selected technologies from the Ubuntu Mobile & Embedded (UME) project.

The OS targets developers designing the company’s single-board computers (SBCs), computer-on-modules (COMs), and system-level products into a wide range of applications. Uses include medical, defense, industrial control, retail point-of-sales/service, avionics, and wired/wireless communications.

Ampro Embedded Linux will ship within 30-45 days in the QuickStart Kits for most of Ampro’s SBC, COM, and system-level products.
