Every day, millions of people worldwide benefit from products that rely on LYNX Software Technologies—from Internet and phone communications, to airline flight-control systems, office automation, and medical devices.
LYNX has crafted and adapted platform architectures across thirty years of processor evolution, beginning with the LynxOS® real-time operating system (RTOS), which was one of the first operating systems to leverage hardware memory protection capabilities. Featuring a state-of-the-art scalable real-time thread execution model, LynxOS® offered a UNIX®-like user model and standard POSIX® interfaces to embedded developers. LynxOS-178®—a 2nd Generation refinement of the LynxOS® RTOS—introduced kernel partitioning and ARINC API standards to the avionic development community. LynxOS-178® is developed and certified to the distinguished FAA DO-178C DAL A safety standard and received the first and only FAA Reusable Software Component certificate.
Lynx MOSAic™ extends this proud history of innovation by leveraging CPU virtualization to further simplify and decentralize platform abstraction layers, providing a modular development & integration framework for rapidly building comprehensible software systems out of independent application modules. An innovator in modern platform software technologies, LYNX provides the richest set of options for efficiently realizing robust, comprehensible software systems onto modern CPUs.
Robust software systems always do exactly—and only—what they are designed to do. That means zero side channel vulnerabilities (Meltdown, Spectre). Zero privilege escalation attacks (Stuxnet, Automotive Hacks, USB Exfiltration). Zero critical safety failures. Such systems are achievable when they are comprehensible.
Our mission is to enable builders of safety- and security-critical software systems to design and deploy comprehensible, provably robust software systems. That is why LYNX is committed to providing the most precise, intuitive, adaptable platforms possible—platforms which radically simplify the realizations of software designs onto complex and evolving multi-core CPUs.
CHOOSING A VENDOR
There is a tremendous amount at stake when procuring software platforms. Functionality, performance, compliance, sustainment, reuse, license restrictions, and transitive OEM license costs must all be considered, making it tremendously difficult to determine whether a platform can meet your project goals or not. From CPU architecture, to firmware, I/O services, standard APIs, and certification evidence, layers of complexity abound. Far too often, embedded projects agree to contracts before realizing that not all design and legal challenges have been effectively resolved.
Many projects have gaps, and it is far too common for vendors to either unwittingly or disingenuously sell standard products that do not satisfy the customer's real project goals—the larger the project, the more gaps exist (which often require collaborative efforts to solve, including partners). If vendors do not diligently study the needs of their customers and/or fail to provide precise and honest guidance, then customers can easily, unknowingly inherit a daunting amount of liability via a simple off the shelf license contract.
THE LYNX PROMISE
It is critical to us that we understand your specific goals, target environments, and unique design challenges. We promise to be transparent—to be forthcoming about technical gaps and to only provide recommendations that have been thoroughly verified. We have zero interest in creating added challenges for our customers through dishonest and/or haphazard business practices and will work tirelessly to deliver unparalleled lifetime value at fair and competitive cost.
