A world leader in mobile and embedded software.

The LiMo Foundation was launched in January 2007 by leading worldwide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and carriers, Motorola, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung, and Vodafone, to foster the creation of an open, hardware-independent, Linux-based mobile platform. The goal of this mobile platform is to enable a rich ecosystem of products, applications, and services from operators, OEMs, independent software vendors (ISVs), and integrators.

Wind River in LiMo Foundation

Wind River joined the LiMo Foundation in 2007 as a core member. LiMo core members may vote on issues, be elected to the Limo Foundation board, participate in foundation councils and lead working groups, and ship products using foundation code. In addition, Wind River is an active member of the foundation's architectural and requirements councils.

Wind River contributed its core Linux distribution, build system, and tools to the LiMo Foundation for founding and core members to use as the integration foundation for the first LiMo platform release.

LiMo selected Wind River to be the systems integrator to deliver the common infrastructure, tools, testing, and integration services for the R2, or second release, of the LiMo Foundation platform. In addition, Wind River provided collaboration tools and process enhancements that improved the efficiency of the contribution process for members.

Wind River is now the only commercial Linux company and systems integrator to provide both technology and services that integrate and validate code contributions of LiMo members through a common working environment (CWE). By selecting Wind River, LiMo will meet its long-term goals of reducing Linux fragmentation while accelerating platform development through strategic contributions.

Why Wind River for LiMo Projects

Wind River has the most in-depth experience with the LiMo Foundation and the LiMo platform. More importantly, only Wind River can provide OEMs, carriers, and silicon providers the breadth of open source mobile operating systems and development tools coupled with the depth of open source handset expertise to help ensure a tightly integrated, high-performing LiMo handset delivered on time and on budget. Wind River's contributions to LiMo projects include the following:

  • Core knowledge of leading open source mobile operating system
  • Layered build system to easily manage packages and patches from multiple development sources
  • Deep LiMo, Linux, and mobile handset experience to ensure on-time, on-budget project completion
  • Deep integration with LiMo member silicon platforms
  • Eclipse-based development tools
