SYSGO and Interface Concept Partner For Unified Systems Solutions


SYSGO announced a formal partnership agreement with Interface Concept, signaling new levels of productive collaboration between major European software and hardware suppliers of embedded systems. SYSGO is a leading supplier of software solutions for the world's most demanding safety and security applications. Interface Concept is a leading designer, developer, and manufacturer of electronic embedded solutions.

The new agreement between the two companies mainly consists of mutual support in integrating two companies'products, i.e. SYSGO's Industrial Grade Embedded Linux ELinOS, with Interface Concept's PowerPC, PowerQUICC, Intel processors & DSP single board computers.

Interface Concept brings solutions to a large array of applications ranging from industrial to the most severe environments, by offering products in standard, extended, rugged and conduction-cooled grades. IC not only supports today's industry standards but is committed to include new exciting standards such as VPX in its product roadmaps to enable its customer next-generation embedded applications.

"Because of our growing number of common customers, this agreement was a very logical step in our relationships with IC", said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing at SYSGO. "The quality and reputation of IC boards are well known and fit perfectly with the actual quality standards SYSGO is using and promoting for its own products."

With ELinOS Industrial Grade Linux, SYSGO offers an 'out-of-the-box' experience which allows embedded Linux developers to concentrate their full attention on the development of their target applications, instead of spending time on gathering the right pieces they need. ELinOS incorporates the appropriate tools to help them build the system and boost their project success, including a graphical configuration front- end with built-in integrity validation.

"We have known SYSGO for a long time. Their products, in particular their embedded Linux solution, has been well appreciated by most of our customers", declares Pierre ANSQUER, Head of pre-sales & customer projects at IC. "By strengthening our collaboration in the integration of our high quality hardware platforms with their top-class embedded real-time operating systems, we will offer to our customers the best-of-breed industrial solution they are expecting."
