VirtualLogix launches new version of virtualisation software for mobile handsets

For single-core ARM-based mobile platforms

By CBR Staff Writer

VirtualLogix, a provider of virtualisation technology for mobile handsets, has released a new version of virtualisation software for mobile handsets, VLX MH4.0, which it claims to provide increased functionality for mobile silicon vendors and OEMs to design smartphone functionality into lower cost single-core, ARM-based consumer phones.

According to VirtualLogix, the VLX delivers virtualisation technology that enables multiple operating systems and application software offerings to co-exist and function in a real-time environment. The new version includes a virtualised version of the Android operating system which isolates the operating system from the mobile handset’s peripheral devices and multimedia accelerators and codecs.

The virtualised Android for VLX enables faster integration 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, the company claims.

In addition, the new version of VLX supports all ARM processors and real-time operating systems that can be used in conjunction with the Android application environment.

Glenda Dorchak, vice chairman and CEO of VirtualLogix, said: “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.

“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.”
