Free DiskOnChip with Linux with purchase of VersaLogic's Jaguar Embedded Computer 
 
VersaLogic Corp today announces a joint promotion with M-Systems (Nasdaq: FLSH) that features VersaLogic's Jaguar CPU and M-Systems' DiskOnChip.  
 
For a limited time, purchasers of a Jaguar CPU from VersaLogic Corp. are eligible to receive a free 48 MB DiskOnChip with Red Hat Linux installed.  
This special offer will provide embedded systems users with an easy way to demo a Jaguar and try Linux at the same time.  
 
VersaLogic usually sells DiskOnChip separately, without Linux installed.  
The promotional DiskOnChip is preinstalled with RedHat Linux 7.1 with the  
2.4.18 kernel. Developers can install the bootable DiskOnChip and immediately  
launch Linux into a graphical user interface from which they can further  
customize their system and run applications. The Linux build has all the  
drivers necessary to access the Jaguar on-board devices such as Ethernet,  
video and I/O. Visit www.versalogic.com/jaguardoc.asp for more information. 
 
The Jaguar PC/104-Plus CPU offers Pentium III/Celeron CPUs from 350 MHz  
fanless to 850 MHz. Features include 10/100 Ethernet, AGP video/flat panel,  
industrial I/O, DiskOnChip, and Transient Voltage Suppressors for ESD protection.
