SciTech has announced an agreement with ATI, which will enable advanced multi-OS (Linux X11, Qt/Embedded, OS/2, Athene, Amiga, SMX, and more) support for ATI’s mobile, desktop and embedded visual processors in future versions of SciTech SNAP Graphics IES and ENT versions. The most significant impact of this agreement will be realized by users of alternate industrial-embedded OS’es, whom will now have access to tested and certified accelerated drivers for ATI hardware on their OS of choice.

Additionally, SciTech has also opened up access to the SciTech SNAP SDK under both a commercial license, and the GNU GPL License. This dual license structure allows broader, and less restrictive access to SciTech’s tools and technologies by OS and application developers.
