An article at SD Times claims that Metrowerks' $6,240 per seat Platform Creation Suite 3.0 de-mystifies the black art of creating board support
packages (BSPs). The article quotes David Beal, Metrowerks director of embedded Linux tools, who describes BSP creation as a four-step process.
Kernel and GNU import are the first, and optional steps, says Beal, wherein developers can replace tools in an off-the-shelf BSP with versions from
another distribution or customized ports of their own.
