LynuxWorks Enables Safety-Critical Apps on Intel (IA-32) Architecture

9/15/2005 - For years, military customers have been eager to build safety critical applications using Intel’s IA-32 architecture. However, no BSP from RTOS suppliers have offered IA-32 support for D0-178B certifiable solutions.

LynuxWorksTM changes all this by announcing it is the first to offer a BSP that provides a complete, certifiable solution for mil/aero developers seeking to leverage the IA-32 platform. This new BSP will be demonstrated in Booth #1021 at the Embedded Systems Conference, taking place in Boston this week.

With the new board support package (BSP), the LynuxWorks’ LynxOS®-178 hard real-time, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) operating system offers key features such as time and space partitioning, multiprocess/multi-thread, open API’s, large RAM support – up to 1GB – and C++ enhancements on the Intel IA-32 architecture.

In addition to featuring a DO-178B level A-certification, LynxOS-178 is also POSIX compliant and offers support for the ARINC 653 APlication EXecutive (APEX), making it an ideal standards-based solution for mil/aero developers seeking to build safety critical, certifiable applications on the Intel IA-32 platform.

A complete toolset including LynuxWorks LuminosityTM, SpyKerTM, and VisualLynuxTM is available along with the LynxOS-178 BSP.

Initial access to the LynxOS-178 BSP will be available in October 2005 with the first customer shipment to begin in December 2005.
