VirtualLogix Releases VLX Mobile Handset (MH) 4.0 Next-Generation Mobile Virtualization Solution for Single-Core ARM-based Mobile Platforms
VirtualLogix®, Inc., leading provider of Real-Time Virtualization technology for mobile handsets, today announced the latest version release of its virtualization software for mobile handsets, VirtualLogix VLX™ MH4.0, which adds increased functionality for mobile silicon vendors and OEMs to more quickly and easily design smartphone functionality into lower cost single-core, ARM-based consumer phones.
“VLX solves fundamental challenges by allowing re-use of proven wireless software with the latest high-level operating systems, thus reducing overall development issues and costs by lessening requirements for retesting and recertification.”
VLX, first launched in 2005, delivers virtualization technology that enables multiple operating systems and application software solutions to co-exist and function seamlessly in a real-time environment critical for connected mobile devices today. By creating operating system and hardware platform independence, as well as enhanced device security and improved performance for multimedia and gaming applications, VLX is a key enabler of the latest ARM-based consumer devices.
“With this newest generation of VLX for ARM, VirtualLogix has increased the ability for developers to quickly adapt the latest generation of mobile silicon platforms and accelerate production of consumer mobile products with differentiation, advanced functionality and lower costs,” said Glenda Dorchak, vice chairman and CEO, VirtualLogix. “VLX solves fundamental challenges by allowing re-use of proven wireless software with the latest high-level operating systems, thus reducing overall development issues and costs by lessening requirements for retesting and recertification.”
VLX MH4.0 includes a fully virtualized version of the Android operating system which isolates the operating system from the mobile handset’s peripheral devices and multimedia accelerators and codecs. Removing direct hardware dependencies in the virtualized Android for VLX make it easier and faster to integrate on hardware platforms and to upgrade to new releases of Android by removing the burden of re-integrating all hardware differentiators that are built in to mobile handset platforms. This latest version of VLX supports all ARM processors and proprietary real-time operating systems which can be used in conjunction with the Android application environment.
The VLX MH4.0 solution will be showcased at VirtualLogix’s suite, The Gallery Hall 3, Level 1, Suite 3.1HS71, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from February 15 – 18, 2010.
