New Linux specification for consumer electronics imminent

June 29th, 2006 · No Comments

The latest specification for CE Linux is expected to be announced in July by the steering committee of the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum.
The CELF was created to establish a common standard of Linux requirements for CE devices and boasts considerable support from the likes of Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung and Hitachi.
Once published this should open the floodgates for a new generation of CE devices built around the code. A formative 1.0 specification was first issued in 2004.
Despite the best efforts of Microsoft, Linux is rapidly becoming the operating system of choice for major consumer electronics brands, primarily because of cost and development savings.
The TiVo PVR was the first widely successful device to use Linux. The OS can also be found in Philips iPronto control system and media centre products from Samsung and Sharp.
