China’s leading CPU maker Loongson Technology (龙芯中科) announced that its LoongArch platform has preliminarily supported OpenHarmony, the Huawei-developed operating system. It completed adaptation verification between OpenHarmony and Loongson 2K0500 development board, Loongson said on September 9.
OpenHarmony is an open-source version of HarmonyOS donated by Huawei to the OpenAtom Foundation. Many Chinese manufacturers have developed a number of operating systems based on it.
Several Loongson ecosystem partners have come up with a series of solutions based on the Loongson 2K0500 platform for Industrial IoT gateways, localized BMCs, education development boards, IDE programming tools, and independent printers.
Founded in 2008, Beijing-headquartered Loongson Technology focuses on processors, related chips, and software and hardware solutions. It went listed in June 2022 on Shanghai Stock Exchange’s STAR Market.
The company operates branches in Nanjing, Hefei, Jinhua, Shanxi, Guangzhou, Xi'an, Wuhan, and Chengdu.
Loongson initiated the establishment of OpenHarmony LoongArch SIG in April together with Chinese software company Hoperun Technology, telecommunication firm Herystorm and Loongson Club.
Loongson said that it will join hands with Hoperun Technology to further adapt the LoongArch chips with OpenHarmony, and build independent OpenHarmony ecosystem and full-stack solutions based on LoongArch platform.
