REDSonic introduces RED-Builder, a tool for configuring, building and
downloading target system images to the application platform.

Orange County, California, January 18th 2001 


REDSonic, Inc., a provider of real-time and embedded Linux solutions,
today announced the release of RED-Builderä, a target system image
creator for embedded systems.

RED-Builder gives developers the ability to build embedded systems for
REDICE-LinuxT, a real-time Linux kernel designed to support mission
and time critical applications.  RED-Builder can also be used to
create non Real-Time Linux images.

RED-Builder's Graphical User Interface makes it very easy for
developers to choose the modules that they need in order to configure
their systems.  RED-Builder enables system developers to configure and
build their systems to suit their specific needs.  Once the users have
the system configured they can download their images to the target
application platform and create the applications that they need.
After the modules have been selected and a target image has been
created, RED-Builder will create an installable root file system on
the specified file storage media and transfer the image to the
embedded platform.

RED-Builder offers a wide variety of supported platforms provided by
REDSonic's hardware partners.  RED-Builder's rapid embedded system
development cycle aids the developer in building fast, extensible and
customized solutions.
