At the MeeGo Conference 2010, Advanced Micro Devices announced it has joined The Linux Foundation's MeeGo open source Linux project, and will provide engineering expertise intended to help establish the technical foundations for next-generation mobile platforms and embedded devices. The development of MeeGo OS is headed by Intel Corp. and Nokia Corp.

"MeeGo represents an exciting, open-source mobile operating system we expect to be adopted by mobile and embedded device makers over time. We are glad to provide engineering resources to joint industry efforts like MeeGo and expect that this operating system will help drive our embedded plans and create expanded market opportunities for our forthcoming accelerated processing units," said Ben Bar-Haim, corporate vice president of software development at AMD.

The MeeGo Linux-based open-source operating system is primarily designed for mobile hardware platforms such as ultra-mobile notebooks, tablets, embedded in-vehicle infotainment systems and smart phones.

AMD is working on accelerated processing units (APUs) - chips that feature x86 microprocessor cores and graphics processing engine on the same piece of silicon - that will be able to power ultra-thin netbooks, notebooks or even tablets. By joining the development of MeeGo, AMD ensures that the new operating system will be able to take advantage of the company's APUs, including Ontario, Krishna, Wichita and Zacate.

"Built from the ground up for a whole new class of mobile computing devices, MeeGo gives companies like AMD and its partners unlimited opportunities to accelerate innovation for the next generation of computing. As an existing Linux Foundation member, AMD will be an important and valuable contributor to the MeeGo Project," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation.
