Tuxera founded by open source NTFS project NTFS-3G, has signed an Intellectual Property Agreement, and joined Microsoft’s exFAT Program, which’ll enable the launch of a new exFAT driver. In addition, Tuxera has joined Microsoft’s Interop Vendor Alliance, a community of software and hardware vendors working together to enhance interoperability with Microsoft systems. With the agreements, Tuxera becomes the first independent software vendor to offer exFAT drivers. Microsoft supports exFAT as the first choice for many file system interoperability needs, including flash memory in consumer devices. Further, the SD Card Association has chosen exFAT as the standard file system for their SDXC cards. Tuxera has now access to the exFAT specifications, Microsoft’s source code implementation of exFAT, and testing and verification tools. Tuxera exAT for Embedded Sytems’ll be first available for Linux.
