RTOS Targets FPGA Soft Cores

LynuxWorks' BlueCat Linux Micro Edition (ME) targets the Xilinx MicroBlaze soft core, which can be used with the Virtex and Spartan FPGAs. BlueCat ME supports MicroBlaze's MMU-less (memory management unit) environment. It also automatically configures a board support package based on the parameters set by a designer via Xilinx's MicroBlaze EDK (embedded developers kit). BlueCat Linux supports Xilinx's PowerPC-based FPGAs.
