TimeSys, AMIRIX to Provide Design Services for Linux

7/28/2003 - TimeSys, a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux(R) for the embedded systems market, and AMIRIX Systems, a provider of custom embedded systems design, announced they have formed a partnership to provide customers with a broad set of design services for TimeSys Linux.

"We are very impressed by TimeSys' tools and support and are strong supporters of their "ready to run" approach to embedded Linux," said Sandra Greer, President & CEO at AMIRIX. "Our expertise in design services is the ideal complement to TimeSys Linux for streamlining development costs and enabling customers to bring products to market faster."

AMIRIX's ability to offer fully integrated solutions through hardware and embedded software design provides significant added value for TimeSys Linux customers. AMIRIX also brings to the table an intimate knowledge of Linux, having ported Linux-based solutions to hardware in traditional embedded systems for over five years. The combination of AMIRIX design services and TimeSys Linux are also suited for the strict performance requirements of defense and aerospace, medical, and telecommunications applications.

"This partnership with AMIRIX will strengthen our strategy of making TimeSys Linux the choice for embedded systems developers by providing our customers with access to a wider range of services," said TimeSys CEO Larry Weidman. "We are looking forward to the opportunity of expanding the presence of TimeSys Linux RTOS."

About TimeSys Linux
TimeSys Linux RTOS is a hardware-specific, royalty-free Linux real-time operating system and software development environment for embedded applications. At its base is TimeSys Linux GPL, the industry's lowest latency open source Linux kernel offering full kernel preemption, unlimited process priorities, enhanced schedulers, and high availability/carrier-grade features. TimeSys Linux RTOS is the only single-kernel Linux distribution to add unique priority inversion avoidance mechanisms and high resolution timers to meet the performance requirements of the most demanding real-time systems. Packaged with enhanced and certified device drivers that support all I/O peripherals to the edge of the board, cross-platform GNU tool chains, a root file system and full documentation, TimeSys Linux RTOS is delivered "ready to run" on more than 65 supported hardware platforms spanning 8 processor architectures and 35 processors. Additionally, TimeSys Linux Reservations technologies ensure system response and predictable performance under extreme loads and overload conditions by reserving CPU cycles and network packet resources for critical tasks. Engineers can improve their development experience through the use of TimeSys' Windows- and Linux-hosted integrated development environment and event tracing/debugging tools, TimeStorm and TimeTrace. Packaged in a complete, royalty-free product, TimeSys Linux RTOS helps reduce total cost of ownership, development risk, and time-to-market of advanced embedded systems.
