Every which way

Every which way

How Linux is helping to enable designers to extend device networking connectivity every which way but loose. By Mike Richardson.

No man is an island and likewise, a device cannot communicate effectively in isolation. To remain competitive – and keep pace with ever changing technology – designers are increasingly finding that their core products need to be connected to the outside world.
However, the challenge now is that they need to deal with a mass of connectivity technologies that didn’t concern them before. And it’s not only Ethernet connectivity that they need to communicate with the rest of their system, but also Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth and gprs. This is proving increasingly difficult for customers, as they quickly need to understand connectivity issues that are outside their comfort zone and core product knowledge.
