Lynx Software Technologies Announces Security Critical RTOS Support for Curtiss-Wright's VPX6-187 Platform

Lynx Software Technologies, Inc. announced the availability of its board support package (BSP) for the Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions VPX6-187 rugged single board computer (SBC). The new BSP is a part of LynxOS 7, the latest release of the security critical RTOS (real-time operating system) from Lynx Software Technologies. The BSP brings the new LynxOS 7 security oriented RTOS to Curtiss-Wright's VPX6-187 board, adding support for the Freescale(R) Power(R) Architecture QorIQ P4040/4080 System On a Chip multi-core processor. LynxOS 7 is the first commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) real-time operating system to provide open APIs to achieve medium-assurance security per the general purpose operating-system protection profile (GPOSPP). LynxOS 7 provides a layered approach to security adding functionality such as roles, capabilities, access controls, quotas, residual information protection, and self-test allowing applications to immediately design security into their products. LynxOS is already in millions of devices and this new functionality allows both existing and new customers to bring security to the forefront. Curtiss-Wright's VPX6-187 can support up to 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, Serial ATA, and MIL-STD-1553 using Freescale's QorIQ P4080 processor with 8 E500MC Cores at speeds up to 1.5 GHz. This board represents a significant advancement in functionality and performance for rugged SBCs. With the release of the new BSP, Lynx Software Technologies has created a foundation on which to build ruggedized, high performance, multi-core, complex solutions with deterministic, hard real-time performance using open POSIX-conformant APIs, and security.
