National Semiconductor licenses Century Software's PIXIL Thin Client for distribution with Geode family of processors

Century Embedded Technologies has announced that National Semiconductor, a leading thin client technology provider, has licensed an evaluation version of Century's PIXILTM Thin Client for distribution with the industry-leading GeodeTM family of processors for thin clients and personal Internet access devices. The PIXIL Thin Client provides manufacturers with a complete solution for server-based computing that provides Windows and Linux access and offers powerful PC-like capabilities in a small footprint, low-resource thin appliance. National selected PIXIL Thin Client because the embedded Linux-based software provides robust features for advanced features and services while maintaining a small footprint. The demonstration distribution of PIXIL shipped with National Semiconductor's reference and development platforms will enable developers to rapidly prototype and deploy their designs on National's high-performance, low-power Geode technology.
