Freescale will unveil the first ColdFire core ever to include a memory management unit (MMU), and therefore able to run full-scale Linux, this week at
the Embedded Processor Forum in San Jose, Calif. Simultaneously, Freescale tools subsidiary Metrowerks announced that it plans to offer Linux
development tools for the core, and will continue to offer -- and enhance -- its uClinux tools for MMU-less ColdFire cores.
