LynuxWorks, MapuSoft Provide Simplified Migration Path to LynxOS RTOS

11/22/2005 - LynuxWorksTM announced its partnership with MapuSoft to provide embedded system developers with a streamlined migration path to its LynxOS® real-time operating system (RTOS). Through the combination of MapuSoft’s OS Changer® and OS Abstractor®, developers can now seamlessly port large amounts of legacy code from an older operating system (OS) to LynxOS to leverage the benefits of an open standards-based, POSIX conformant embedded operating system that delivers high reliability, superior performance and real-time capabilities.

As the embedded market continues to evolve across numerous industries, including consumer electronics, industrial automation, military and aerospace and telecommunications markets, developers are migrating towards open standards-based solutions such as LynxOS. Open standards software enables developers to save a significant amount of development time to focus on other aspects of the design process by simplifying portability and software reuse. By ensuring that all software is open standards-based, developers can ensure that hardware and software upgrades can be made seamlessly to reduce cost and development time and support future enhancements on other platforms. In addition, open standards deliver a long-term cost savings because customers can protect their investment and avoid the high cost barriers and time-to-market penalties that normally occur with changing operating systems.

"Our partnership with MapuSoft builds upon our commitment to offering developers the greatest ease and flexibility of reusing their previous work," said Inder Singh, CEO and chairman of LynuxWorks. "The shift towards open standards is very real and gaining tremendous momentum across all industries. System developers are realising that being tied down to one vendor is cost prohibitive and ineffective. Open standards is the key to unlocking their design potential and giving them the freedom and flexibility to leverage the ever-growing world of open standards software to get to market faster and cheaper."

"We are proud to team up with one of the recognised embedded industry leaders such as LynuxWorks and enable developers to seamlessly migrate towards an open standard based product," said Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. "Our OS Changer and OS Abstractor are designed to quickly and easily port existing code without compromising the operating system, allowing developers to upgrade their system and lower their development costs."
