8/12/2003 - LynuxWorksTM announced the expansion of its distributor network with the addition of RTSoft Inc., a leading provider of complete software and support solutions for the embedded systems market. RTSoft will sell, support and provide both engineering and training services for all LynuxWorks products including LynxOS®, a real-time embedded operating system (RTOS), BlueCat® Linux® and BlueCat RT, the popular open-source Linux distributions, and the new LynxOS-178 package, a level A certifiable (FAA standard), real-time operating system (RTOS) that meets the stringent standards for safety-critical systems. RTSoft has agreed to provide LynuxWorks products in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and other CIS states.
"As a leader in providing software development services, RTSoft is excited to offer the full range of LynuxWorks products in the Russian Federation and other CIS countries," said Alexander Kaliadin, director of embedded computer technologies at RTSoft Inc. "Our military and aerospace customers will enjoy the benefits of excellent portability of LynxOS code and easy migration from any UNIX platform to hard real-time LynxOS."
LynuxWorks is the only company to offer customers a complete family of Linux ABI—(application binary interface) compatible embedded operating systems—from its royalty free BlueCat Linux to BlueCat RT to its industry-leading LynxOS® real-time operating system (RTOS). This approach enables customers to protect their investment and avoid the high cost-barriers and time-to-market penalties that changing embedded operating systems normally incur. Applications can easily be moved between those that have been quickly and inexpensively developed with BlueCat Linux and those on the LynxOS real-time platform if and when real-time product requirements emerge—with no costly or lengthy porting process.
"LynuxWorks is committed to consistently delivering the best engineering and support to the rapidly growing embedded systems market worldwide," said Gerry Winckler, managing director of LynuxWorks Europe. "We are confident that RTSoft will capitalize on their extensive experience and knowledge of the embedded space to deliver superior service to our valued customers in the CIS region."
