  • Virtualized guest operating system can run para-virtualized (Linux or LynxOS RTOS)
  • Virtualized guest operating system can run gully virtualized and unmodified (Microsoft Windows)
  • Virtualized guest operating systems can share a single core
  • Ability for a guest operating system to run in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) mode and across multiple cores
  • Built-in virtual networking
  • Based on open standards
  • Seamless migration path for Linux- and POSIX-based applications
  • Luminosity 4.7 Integrated Development Envorinment (IDE)

The Luminosity 4.7 IDE for LynxSecure 4.0 offers development, debug, and analysis tools integrated into an industry standard Eclipse-based framework for maximum interoperability. Luminosity 4.7 adds full support for developing LynxSecure 4.0 hypervisor kernel images along with a wide variety of guest operating systems. Luminosity 4.7 provides a fast and easy way to configure the LynxSecure Hypervisor, assign devices to specific subjects such as the LynxOS-SE RTOS and Linux and Windows operating systems, and build the downloadable image. Luminosity can then download and boot LynxSecure 4.0 and it’s guest operating systems and then debug applications running on the subjects. Luminosity offers a set of Wizards that take new users through the configuration process using a new autoconfiguration utility that runs on the target.
