Eight consumer electronic companies establish "CE Linux Forum"


Matsushita Electric Industrial, Sony Corporation, Hitachi, NEC Corporation, Royal Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sharp Corporation, and Toshiba Corporation, today announced the establishment of the "CE Linux Forum (CELF)". CELF will discuss and formalize requirements for extensions to Linux to meet the needs of CE products such as audio/visual products and cellular phones, etc. CELF will publish such requirements and will accept and evaluate open source solutions that support to meet the published requirements. CELF will also promote broad usage of Linux for CE products. IBM, an industry leader in Linux solutions and supporter of open standards ecosystems, is pursuing membership and plans to be an active participant in the CELF.

Linux is widely used today in personal computers and network servers, and has been selected as an OS for CE products. On December 18th, an announcement was made to develop Linux for CE products and to establish a forum with the aim to enhance Linux platform for consumer electronics devices.

CELF will first aim to improve the following:

• Further improve the startup and shutdown time
• Improve real-time capabilities
• Reduce ROM/RAM size requirements
• Improve efficiency of power management

CELF's main activities will include defining requirements for a variety of extensions in "Linux based CE products", collaborating and reaching consensus with open source projects as well as with the Linux community, thereby promoting the proliferation of CE Linux based digital electronics in the electronics industry.

Information and member lists details will be available at: http://www.celinuxforum.org
