TTTech, LynuxWorks Integrate TTP Bus with LynxOS DO-178B Certified RTOS

2/15/2006 - TTTech and LynuxWorks today announced a partnership to offer customers integrated solutions based on the deterministic TTP communication bus and the LynxOS DO-178B certified RTOS.

A new TTTech development board for Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation of aerospace test equipment, which supports simulation of a whole distributed network for aerospace applications with hard real-time requirements, will be the first project to benefit from the partnership.

The TTTech TTP (Time-Triggered Protocol) bus is a bi-directional, partitioned and fault tolerant databus that offers deterministic performance up to 25Mbps. LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 features DO-178B level A-certification, partitioning, POSIX compliance, and ARINC 653 APplication EXecutive (APEX) support. Both address very directly the stability and standards compliance expectations of military and aerospace system developers seeking to build safety critical, certifiable applications.

"By linking TTTech's products with the powerful and widely tested operating system LynxOS, end-users from aerospace industry will benefit from the easy integration for safety- and mission-critical embedded applications," commented Kurt Doppelbauer, director of sales aerospace at TTTech. "LynxOS-178 and TTP are proven live flight systems, and this partnership was driven by customer demand for a complete solution from two best-in-class vendors."

"Together we offer a partitioned operating system and a partitioned communication platform that allows easy and deterministic communication between modules," commented Robert Day, vice president of marketing at LynuxWorks. "The technology partnership offers end-users from aerospace industry easy and fast integration for safety- and mission-critical embedded applications.
