The Windows on Arm Group of Linaro Ltd, an open source collaborative engineering organisation creating applications for the Arm® environment, has welcomed CIX Technology Inc (CIX Technology) as a Member. The goal of the Windows on Arm Group is to create a robust, self-reliant Arm open source ecosystem for Windows. The group is enabling engineers to create natively for Windows on Arm and recompile more quickly by providing support for a wide variety of tools, languages, and frameworks. Up to this point, successes have included the introduction of Qt 6.2 with Windows on Arm hardware as a technology preview and the availability of the Windows 10 on Arm bot support and binary as part of the LLVM 12.0.0 release.
The mission of CIX Technology is to advance intelligent computing for Arm-based client devices. By investigating tools for Arm native development and advertising them in the local market, the company is joining the group to aid in the advancement of the worldwide Windows on Arm ecosystem. Additionally, the business intends to collaborate with Linaro on creating a boot architecture implementation that complies with Arm SystemReadyTM, which is essential for OEM/ODM clients that want to design personal computing client devices using the Arm architecture.
“We’re seeing big momentum with regards to Arm architecture adoption in the PC market segment, and our goal is to design Arm-compatible intelligent computing solutions for Windows devices” said Gang Liu, Co-founder & Software Engineering VP at CIX Technology. “In order to achieve this we need a strong Arm open source ecosystem which supports application migration and native development on Windows. Linaro is the best place for us to contribute with other industry leaders in a coordinated way and we are thrilled to be joining.”
“We are pleased to welcome CIX Technology to the Windows on Arm group in collaboration with Arm and the other members”, said Andrea Gallo, VP of Business Development at Linaro. “Their expert team will help grow our engineering capacity to address gaps in the upstream CI, allowing packages to run natively on Windows on Arm while targeting optimal performance and reduced power consumption.”
