Lynx Software Technologies, Inc., a world leader in the embedded safety and security software market, today announced the availability of its board support package (BSP) for the Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions 6U VME-1908 and 6U OpenVPX™ VPX6-1958 rugged Single Board Computers (SBCs). The new BSPs are part of LynxOS 7, the latest release of the security critical RTOS (real-time operating system) from Lynx Software Technologies. The BSPs bring the new LynxOS 7 security oriented RTOS to Curtiss-Wright’s VME-1908 and VPX6-1958 SBCs taking advantage of Intel®’s 4th Generation Core® i7 multi-core processors.

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 VME-1908 and VPX6-1958 boards contain Intel Core i7 processors with four cores delivering 2.4 GHz of performance. Each SBC can support up to 32GB of high-bandwidth DDR3 SDRAM and comes with a rich complement of high-speed I/O, including multiple Gigabit Ethernet, Gen3 PCIe, USB 2.0 ports, GPIO, SATA, RS-232, RS-422, and two PMC/XMC mezzanine sites. These boards represent a significant advancement in functionality and performance for rugged SBCs. With the release of the new BSPs 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 state of the art security.

"With this latest set of BSPs, we're offering our LynxOS customers a migration path to next-generation Intel Core i7 multi-core hardware resulting in more performance, more memory, and the ability to run more sophisticated applications on a security-oriented RTOS,” said John Blevins, director of Product Marketing at Lynx Software Technologies. “Customers that use Curtiss-Wright boards and our RTOS should feel confident that they are getting state of the art support for both their hardware and software combinations for all of their complex real-time applications, including both military and aerospace deployments.”

“With the availability of the new LynxOS 7 board support package, system designers of VME and OpenVPX systems gain a significant new option for speeding and lowering cost of developing security critical real-time applications,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions.
