Xilinx, Inc. has acquired Australia-based embedded Linux solutions provider PetaLogix. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Xilinx, the addition of PetaLogix and their PetaLinux technology strengthens Xilinx's capabilities and commitment to customers to provide the best Linux solutions possible.

"PetaLogix has been a key player behind the growing adoption of Xilinx programmable technologies within the embedded market, first providing a Linux distribution for MicroBlaze and PowerPC processors, and now a Linux distribution and tool chain for the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC," said Tomas Evensen, chief scientist, embedded software, Xilinx. "With their technology, tool set and expertise, the PetaLogix team is uniquely positioned to help Xilinx further shorten time-to-market and aggressively drive growth in the embedded space, and across all key vertical market segments we serve."

PetaLogix was founded in 2005 by University of Queensland's research fellow John Williams, before spinning out as a privately held company in 2007.

PetaLinux SDK, the flagship product of PetaLogix, is an embedded Linux solution that is based on advanced proprietary technology that was developed and purchased from the University of Queensland.

The PetaLinux Embedded Linux SDK contains everything needed to build, develop, test and deploy embedded Linux based projects targeting Xilinx FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.
