LynuxWorks Announces CodeWarrior(TM) IDE Edition for LynxOS and BlueCat Linux Embedded Applications

Linux and Solaris Hosts Gain Complete Design and Development Environment



Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from LynuxWorks, Inc.

    SAN FRANCISCO, Embedded Systems Conference, April 10 /PRNewswire/ --
 LynuxWorks(TM), Inc., a provider of open source and true real-time embedded
 solutions for the post-PC era, today announced the availability of a
 CodeWarrior(TM) Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Edition for
 LynuxWorks Development Tools for companies using Linux and Solaris host
 development environments and deploying on LynxOS(R) and BlueCat(TM) Linux
 targets.
     "LynuxWorks has traditionally lead the pack with leading edge operating
 system technologies and embedded systems expertise. Now we are adding to our
 tool set to help our customers increase the productivity of their engineering
 staff during the design and development process. Metrowerks' CodeWarrior IDE
 is a very powerful and familiar tool with embedded systems developers. The
 addition of the CodeWarrior IDE to the LynuxWorks Development Tools will help
 our customers speed the product development phase and introduction of their
 new products to market," said Greg Rose, director of product management for
 LynuxWorks. "Additionally, this CodeWarrior IDE announcement is the first of a
 series of new announcements we will be making in 2001 under our new LynuxWorks
 expanded tools initiative."
 
     Addressing developers' time constraints
     The introduction of the CodeWarrior IDE for LynuxWorks embedded operating
 systems helps software developers face a myriad of time-to-market quandaries,
 chief among them are market delivery windows holding developers to aggressive
 coding/debug schedules and engineers being required to spend time learning a
 new suite of development tools. The CodeWarrior IDE Edition of LynuxWorks
 Development Tools will accelerate the development process by combining an
 editor, code browser, compiler, linker, and debugger into a single
 application, all controlled by an easy-to-use, familiar Graphical User
 Interface (GUI).
 
     Point and Click Code Development
     With the CodeWarrior IDE on the Linux or Solaris cross-development host,
 an application developer can use the project management and stationery
 capabilities to create a new project and then use the editor and code browsing
 capabilities to efficiently create application code. When ready to debug, the
 developer simply clicks on the debugger selection and it automatically builds
 the application, if needed, then transparently downloads the executable to the
 embedded target board running either the LynxOS or BlueCat embedded operating
 system. The CodeWarrior IDE will then automatically launch the cross debugger,
 and display the debugger GUI on the host system. This means with a simple
 click of the mouse, all the necessary actions to build and debug the target
 application have been performed. This relieves developers from all the usual
 cumbersome commands, and most importantly, some of the wasted time in the
 development phase of a project.
 
     About LynxOS and BlueCat
     LynuxWorks addresses a broad range of customer needs in the area of
 real-time computing, from hard real-time to open source Linux. LynuxWorks'
 LynxOS is a hard real-time operating system that combines performance,
 reliability, and scalability together with patented technology for real-time
 event handling. LynxOS meets the highest reliability and deterministic
 response standards and is used in a variety of products, from business systems
 such as routers to mission-critical flight control systems. LynuxWorks'
 BlueCat is an open-source Linux, and is available as a complete solution for
 developers. In addition to a stable commercial version of the operating
 system, LynuxWorks provides a complete software development environment and
 tools for debugging and tuning applications. BlueCat is backed by a variety of
 optional support packages offering software engineering, technical support,
 consulting and professional services from LynuxWorks.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     The CodeWarrior IDE Edition of LynxOS Development Tools will be released
 in May 2001. The price starts at $2,499, depending on configuration. The
 BlueCat version will be released later in 2001.
