[Commercial] eCos Professional Developer's Kit

eCosCentric is pleased to announce the release of the eCosPro
Developer's Kit for a number of hardware platforms.

The eCosPro Developer's Kit consists of:
  * eCosPro - a stable, fully tested, certified and supported version
    of eCos and RedBoot
  * the latest eCos and RedBoot documentation
  * a graphical IDE (available Q4 2003 for selected platforms)
  * a prebuilt compiler toolchain (Linux or Windows based)
  * prebuilt eCos host tools (Linux or Windows based)
  * prebuilt RedBoot binaries
  * incident and advice-line support for eCosPro and (optionally) the
    host tools
  * additional hardware platform support not currently available for
    public download
  * a professional installer
  * rolling releases and extended support options
  * a PPP stack add-on for the standard eCos TCP/IP package

eCosPro is targeted at professional developers looking to integrate eCos
within commercial products. It is subjected to extensive testing within
the eCosCentric test farm (an automated array of build hosts and target
platforms) prior to release. To ensure the highest level of platform
stability, boards will typically execute more than 15,000 eCos tests in
the test farm over a two week period.

Few platforms in the periodic public releases of eCos receive the level
of testing associated with the eCosPro releases. Organizations deploying
or evaluating eCos will therefore benefit from the stability and
reliability of eCosPro and from the extensive support options that
eCosCentric provides. The eCosPro Developer's Kit includes an incident
support package, giving developers the reassurance that problems can be
resolved rapidly by experts.

Platforms initially supported by the eCosPro Developer's Kit are:
  * SuperH     SH4-202 MicroDev platform
  * ColdFire   Motorola M5272C3 ColdFire evaluation board
  * ARM        Atmel AT91EB40, AT91EB40A, AT91EB42, AT91EB55
  * PowerPC    A&M Adder PPC850 board
  * IA32       i386 PC platform

Support for the Linux Synthetic Target is also available on specific
Linux distributions. Further platform support will be added on a regular
basis - driven by customer demand.

eCosCentric will continue to work with the eCos maintainers to develop
and maintain the publically available version of eCos which may be
downloaded at or purchased on CDROM at
