RTOS, secure virtualization technology for real-time systems, DO-178B and hypervisor for the most demanding embedded operating system applications...

Embedded System Applications Expertise in embedded systems markets

LynuxWorks™ has quick-to-market embedded-system solutions for demanding applications in markets such as industrial automation and process control, military and aerospace, consumer devices and communications.

Military and aerospace embedded software applications

NASA's AVIRIS (Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer)

From in-orbit embedded systems to jumbo jets to vital battlefield networks, designers of mission-critical aerospace and defense systems requiring real-time performance, scalability, and high-availability facilities consistently turn to the LynxOS® RTOS and the LynxOS-178 RTOS for software certification to DO-178B.

Rich in system resources and networking services, LynxOS provides an off-the-shelf software platform with hard real-time response backed by powerful distributed computing (CORBA), high reliability, software certification, and long-term support options.

The LynxOS-178 RTOS for software certification, based on the RTCA DO-178B standard, assists developers in gaining certification for their mission- and safety-critical systems. Real-time systems programmers get a boost with LynuxWorks' DO-178B RTOS training courses.

LynxOS-178 is the first DO-178B and EUROCAE/ED-12B certifiable, POSIX®-compatible RTOS solution.

Rootkit and APT detection system

LynxSecure Rookit Detection System

Powered by our award-winning secure-virtualization technology, the LynxSecure Rootkit Detection System is a custom-built hardened appliance, which detects low-level, zero-day rootkits—the lethal payload of most APTs. The detection is direct (i.e., not done by statistical analysis or other indirect techniques), and is coupled with immediate, automated, live visual forensic data.

Medical electronics technology

Elekta Radiosurgery and Radiotherapy Solutions

With the introduction of the LynxSecure separation kernel and embedded hypervisor, medical devices can now have the best of both worlds, with hard real-time applications running alongside commercial desktop operating systems on the same industry-standard Intel® processors.

The separation kernel offers both safety and security partitioning for applications. The embedded hypervisor functionality allows "guest" operating systems and their applications to run in their own partitions.

Communications applications

Rohde & Schwarz DECT Signalling Test Unit

"Five-nines" availability, CompactPCI hot swap support, and hard real-time response—LynxOS delivers on these key requirements and more for today's carrier-class systems. Scalable kernel configurations, distributed computing capabilities, integrated communications stacks, and fault-management facilities make LynxOS the ideal choice for companies looking for a single operating system for all embedded telecommunications applications—from complex central controllers to simple line/trunk cards.

LynuxWorks JumpStart for Communications package enables OEMs to rapidly develop mission-critical communications equipment, with pre-integrated, state-of-the-art, data networking and porting software components—including source code for easy customization.

The Lynx Certifiable Stack (LCS) is a secure TCP/IP protocol stack designed especially for applications where standards certification is required.

Electronics applications and consumer devices

Hospital Wireless Sensor Application Proof-of-Concept from Portwell

As the number of powerful embedded processors in consumer devices continues to rise, the LynxOS real-time operating system provides a highly reliable option for systems designers.

For makers of low-cost consumer electronic devices who wish to integrate the LynxOS real-time operating system into their products, we offer special MSRP-based pricing to reduce royalty fees to a negligible portion of the device's MSRP.

Industrial automation and process control software

Kontron Train Management System (TMS)

Designers of industrial and process control systems know from experience that LynuxWorks operating systems provide the security and reliability that their industrial applications require.

From ISO 9001 certification to fault-tolerance, POSIX conformance, secure partitioning and high availability, we've got it all. Take advantage of our two decades of experience.
