Wasabi supports Intel's new IOP321 chip

Wasabi Systems, which sells the NetBSD version of Unix, is supporting Intel's new IOP321 communications chip, the company said this week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. NetBSD is a variant of the BSD family of operating systems, which is derived from Unix. The IOP321 is a version of Intel's XScale family. Intel says it's good for special-purpose "embedded" computing devices, including networking equipment such as network cards or switches, and for storage systems. Red Hat also supports the IOP321 with its eCos operating system, while LynuxWorks is offering its BlueCat Linux for the chip. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

Embedded Unix start-up raises $2 million

Wasabi Systems, a start-up that hopes to make a version of the NetBSD version of Unix for non-PC "embedded" computing devices such as network routers, has raised $2 million in a first round of funding, the company said Tuesday. Newlight Associates, which committed $1.5 million, led the round. Additional funds are expected in the next 60 days, the New York company said. Embedded software leader Wind River Systems had hoped to commercialize FreeBSD, a close relative of NetBSD, but abandoned the effort. However, Wasabi hired a former Wind River employee who ported BSD to Intel's Xscale chips. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
