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.
