Texas Instruments invests in VirtualLogix

Texas Instruments (TI) has made an undisclosed equity investment in virtualization software company VirtualLogix. The companies have agreed to collaborate on future Linux-based virtualization technology using TI processors, with an apparent focus on wireless applications and network access devices.

VirtualLogix has long supported TI DSPs with its VLX-DM (digital media) product targeting set-top boxes (STBs), and it offers a version of VLX-NI (VLX for Network Infrastructure) that is optimized for TI's DSPs. For its part, TI recently bundled an evaluation version of VLX-DM with select DaVinci DSP and RISC/DSP development boards.

VirtualLogix's Linux-based VLX products, which also include a VLX-MH (mobile handset) version used in Grundig Mobile's Grundig U900 design, comprise a small scheduler and other nanokernel components designed to divvy up a computer system's resources between multiple operating system instances, says VirtualLogix. Touted advantages include reduced bill-of-material costs, legacy OS/application reuse, software failure containment, and license segregation.
