kits and wireless protocol stacks designed for the embedded arena and aimed squarely at a broad array of
microprocessors commonly used in that market are among the products scheduled to roll out in San

That's considered a significant step for the open-source community, which until now has focused primarily on
the desktop and on that market's high-performance microprocessors."
