    SAN FRANCISCO and PITTSBURGH, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Embedded Systems
 Conference - TimeSys Corporation, a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux and
 Java(TM) development technologies, today announced that its Linux-based
 solutions have been optimized to support Sun(TM) Microsystems' UltraSPARC(TM)
 IIe family of processors.  A board support package (BSP) for TimeSys Linux and
 development tools optimized for Sun's CP2060 embedded board, based on the
 UltraSPARC IIe processor, is now available from www.TimeSys.com.  Support for
 the UltraSPARC architecture expands TimeSys' overall footprint to include an
 even larger range of processor architectures that include IA32 (x86), ARM,
 PowerPC, MIPS, SuperH, and Xscale.
     "Sun Microsystems is throwing its weight behind Linux as a key component
 of their solution for embedded systems, and as a strategic partner, we're
 committed to providing designers with a complete embedded Linux solution for
 Sun's UltraSPARC family of processors," said TimeSys President and CEO Larry
 Weidman.  "Our BSP for the CP2060 board will provide designers building
 embedded systems for network equipment providers and carriers for the
 telecommunications industry with the first real-time embedded Linux solution
 for the UltraSPARC IIe processor."
     TimeSys has developed a Board Support Package (BSP) specifically optimized
 for the architectural features of the Sun CP2060 board package.  The TimeSys
 CP2060 BSP will feature TimeSys Linux GPL, consisting of a fully featured
 preemptible kernel that extends a standard Linux distribution to support the
 predictable, extremely low-latency response requirements of embedded systems
 based on Sun Microsystems' UltraSPARC IIe architecture.  Available for the
 CP2060 BSP are additional TimeSys kernel modules that transform TimeSys Linux
 GPL to meet the requirements of applications ranging from handheld devices and
 telecommunication switches to process control and avionics.  TimeSys
 Linux/Real-Time delivers additional capabilities to deliver full response
 predictability to TimeSys Linux GPL.  TimeSys Linux/CPU and /Net provide
 capabilities for dynamic load handling and system overload protection.  Used
 in conjunction with TimeSys' cross-platform development tools, TimeSys
 provides a complete embedded Linux-based solution for the CP2060 board.
     TimeSys' BSP for the Sun CP2060 delivers a complete solution for embedded
 engineers that include:
     -- Support for the CP2060 for TimeSys' complete embedded-Linux product
     -- Linux board-hosted GNU tool chains
     -- IA32 (x86) Linux cross-platform GNU tool chains
     -- Timing analysis core for use by TimeSys' event tracing and timing
        visualization tool: TimeTrace
     -- Certified device drivers
     -- User and API documentation
     Supporting Windows-based developers, TimeSys supports the CP2060 with the
 following set of Windows-based cross-development tools:
     -- TimeStorm: TimeSys' Windows-hosted Integrated Development Environment
        for cross-platform development
     -- TimeTrace: a Windows-hosted tool for event tracing and timing
     -- TimeWiz: a Windows-hosted real-time analysis and simulation tool
     TimeSys will be demonstrating the full range of capabilities of its
 embedded Linux operating system, development tools, and proprietary
 performance enhancing modules at the Embedded Systems Conference at the
 Moscone Center in San Francisco, March 12-16.
     About TimeSys
     TimeSys is a pioneer and leader in Embedded Linux and Java development
 technologies.  Its products allow design engineers to leverage the power,
 flexibility and reliability of a new class of development tools for advanced
 embedded systems for a variety of markets and applications, covering the
 complete performance range from non-real-time to deterministic hard real-time,
 using both open-source and proprietary technologies.  TimeSys is considered
 the top choice by systems architects for developing more robust, less
 expensive, single API Linux solutions for embedded systems. TimeSys was the
 first to create a reservation technology that guarantees system response, even
 in overloaded systems.  TimeSys solutions offer completely predictable and
 fast response time performance.  For more information about TimeSys, please
