Metrowerks CodeTEST Supports BlueCat and LynxOS from LynuxWorks

2/11/2004 - LynuxWorksTM Inc. has selected CodeTESTTM Software Analysis Tools, Version 4 from Metrowerks, as the code-analysis tool to support its BlueCat® Linux® embedded operating system (OS) and its real-time embedded operating system (RTOS), LynxOS®.

Metrowerks CodeTEST Software Analysis Tools, Version 4, supports the newest version of the Linux OS, Version 2.6, and is now compatible with BlueCat and LynxOS from LynuxWorks. Embedded software developers who require code visibility and precise analysis of embedded systems in operation can use CodeTEST to easily view execution history of their systems at the source or RTOS level. The CodeTEST instrumentation technology provides visibility into software execution in real-time without interrupting the system, saving valuable development time and resources while enabling increased product quality.

"Our collaborative effort with Metrowerks to integrate their CodeTEST software-analysis technology with BlueCat Linux and LynxOS allows our customers to build systems with confidence and exceed time to market goals," said Bob Morris, vice president of sales and marketing, LynuxWorks. "CodeTEST, coupled with our embedded OS products, helps to ensure code quality and product performance and deliver the visibility, reliability, and credibility required in today's complex business-critical embedded systems."

CodeTEST technology helps expedite the development, test and deployment of business and safety-critical embedded systems with innovative technologies such as application and low-level embedded software test, debug, and visualization tools. The technology allows software engineers to test, debug and visualize embedded software applications for high-demand products, including optical or wireless voice and data communications networks; airborne, healthcare monitoring, and automotive systems; industrial automation, console games, and consumer electronics.
