About Lynx Software Technologies
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.
An innovator in modern platform software technologies, Lynx provides the richest set of options for efficiently realizing robust, comprehensible software systems onto modern CPUs.
Lynx has crafted and adapted platform architectures over thirty years of processor evolution, beginning with the LynxOS® real-time operating system (RTOS), which offered a UNIX®-like user model and standard POSIX interfaces to developers of embedded systems. LynxOS® was one of the first operating systems to leverage hardware memory protection capabilities and featured a state-of-the-art scalable real-time thread execution model. 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 MOSA.ic™ extends this proud history of innovation by leveraging CPU virtualization to further simplify and decentralize platform abstraction layers, providing a modular development and integration framework for rapidly building software systems out of independent application modules.
