Mentor Embedded Linux Lite for Broadcom XLP Processors
Download Mentor Embedded Linux Lite for the Broadcom XLP family of multicore processors. The XLP processor is a third-generation architectural enhancement to Broadcom Microsystems industry leading multi-core, multi-threaded XLR processor family.
A key advantage of Mentor Embedded Linux is continuity of workflow. One way to experience this is through the no-cost download called Mentor Embedded Linux Lite, a derivative of Mentor’s commercial Mentor Embedded Linux product.
Mentor Embedded Linux Lite is available now as a no-cost download. This is not trial or “timed-out” software, so you are free to use it as long as you wish.
How to Get Started
Here’s what you’ll need to get started building your Linux-based device on Broadcom processors. Mentor Embedded Linux Lite provides:
- C/C++ Tool chain
- Linux kernel for the XLP family of Broadcom processors tested and documented
- Alpha Board Support Package with limited functionality
- Support of the XEN Hypervisor to create a multi operating system environment

You may also want to consider the commercial version of Mentor Embedded Linux for Broadcom processors, offering developers a new approach to benefit from the vast world of open source software without the trade-offs associated with existing options.
With the commercial version of Mentor Embedded Linux, a new third option is now available to fully provide developers a method to create their own unique product platform with the commercial support of Mentor Embedded.
The commercial version includes Mentor Embedded System Builder, a system integration tool that assists the user in assembling a software platform and development environment that meets specific product requirements straight out of the box. System Builder is a powerful command line tool to create Linux distributions in an automated and reproducible environment. System Builder leverages the OpenEmbedded project to provide a polished build environment to cross-compile and package software for a target device.
