Advanced Micro Devices Inc and UniSoft Corp – the former Root Computers Ltd – have joined forces to implement UniSoft’s UniPlus+ version of Unix System V.3 on the new Am29000 reduced instruction set microprocessor. Coming late into the game, AMD is ravenous for engineering workstation design wins for the 29000 and sees UniPlus+ as the key to unlock that door. The integrated hardware and software will be available to customers in the fourth quarter of 1988. AMD says that the 29000, announced last year, is already making its mark in the embedded controller market. UniPlus+ is already offered by over 130 vendors worldwide.
