Hardware Compatibility, Similar Form Factor, and Extensive Portability Toolkit Make This Advanced Design a Natural Upgrade For Current Axis 83+ and 89 Users

The Axis discontinuation created a significant void in the market for embedded Linux in an I/O intensive industrial box. The experience that Ctek gained by representing Axis in this market and the sheer depth of our Linux development experience uniquely qualifies Ctek to fill this void.

Ctek, a leading manufacturer and distributor of specialized communications solutions for industrial and commercial applications, announces the G6200 Device Server, the first in a series of Linux based networking products. As a distributor for the discontinued Axis server line Ctek recognized the need for an up-to-date follow on product. Accordingly the G6200 is designed to be a direct replacement for the popular Axis 83+ and 89 servers including a no cost development environment complete with software tools that minimize the application migration effort.

Out of the box the G6200 is ready to meet the demanding requirements of application development and rapid product deployment with a reliable load of Linux 2.6 and hardware interfaces to support almost any application. This means that your development efforts can bypass hardware design, manufacturing and supply chain issues, and agency certification to focus on what is critical to your success, your application. Highlights of the G6200's design include:

  •     Processor - Atmel AT91SAM9G20
  •     OS - Linux 2.6
  •     DRAM - 64 Mbytes
  •     Flash - 256 Mbytes (NAND)
  •     Serial Port - 2 (RS232 DB9)
  •     Serial Port - 1 (RS485/422)
  •     USB Host Port - 1 (USB 2.0)
  •     USB Device Port - 1 (USB 2.0)
  •     Ethernet Ports - 2 (10/100baseT)
  •     Power - 12 VDC

The G6200 is positioned as a direct replacement for the discontinued Axis 83+ and Axis 89 servers that Ctek has distributed for years. In support of the Axis migration Ctek is providing a porting environment that in most cases will allow the direct use of packages and makefiles from the Axis environment. Discussing the Axis withdrawal from the embedded Linux market Ctek President William Buchan said "The Axis discontinuation created a significant void in the market for embedded Linux in an I/O intensive industrial box. The experience that Ctek gained by representing Axis in this market and the sheer depth of our Linux development experience uniquely qualifies Ctek to fill this void."

Engineering and application porting samples of the G6200 are shipping now. Volume production will begin in September. An Open Source software/firmware development environment is available now from Ctek's new product introduction team and will be freely distributed on the Ctek web site (http://www.ctekproducts.com) once the production ramp begins.
