All three companies – AMD, Sage, and Viosoft – are GizmoSphere partners, contributing time, talent and resources to make GizmoSphere possible. A fourth partner, Texas Multicore Technologies, is also participating in the exhibition and conference, sharing its expertise in parallelization and multicore architectures.
GizmoSphere is a recently launched initiative that embraces the model of open source software and hardware and engages a worldwide community of embedded developers. At the heart of GizmoSphere is Gizmo, a 4-inch by 4-inch x86 development board available with coreboot® and offered as part of a comprehensive development kit. Delivering 52.8 gigaflops while operating at less than 10 watts, the Gizmo board merges the power of a supercomputer with the I/O functionality of a microcontroller, which is fully explained in the Microcontroller Meets Supercomputer session.
Meanwhile the Advanced Android Development & Debug on Gizmo session reveals how to develop and debug the Android environment on the Gizmo platform, from the Linux kernel through Java applications and everything in between, within a single, multilingual environment. These and additional free sessions are being offered all three days of the conference (February 26 – 28).
Embedded World is recognized as the biggest exhibition of its kind and a premier meeting place for the international embedded community. To learn more about this event, visit www.embedded-

GizmoSphere is an independent initiative created to meet the open source development needs of embedded developers around the globe. It serves as a resource center providing documentation, downloads, news and other information pertinent to the embedded development community. GizmoSphere offers the Gizmo Explorer Kit, which brings the power of a supercomputer and the I/O capabilities of a microcontroller to the x86 open source embedded development community in one convenient, affordable package.
