Securing the Internet of Things Just Got Easier

On October 7, 2015, Posted by , In Recent White Paper & App Notes,

Traditional network and endpoint protection mechanisms are struggling today to protect our corporate IT infrastructure and computers. Adding the projected billions of nodes that will constitute the Internet of Things exacerbates the problem dramatically. The advantage that the embedded industry has over the traditional computer world, is that the devices…

Now Any Embedded System Can Be Hi-Reliability

On September 5, 2012, Posted by , In Recent White Paper & App Notes,

The distinction between ‘hi-reliability’ and ‘standard’ embedded software design is being blurred as the commercial and human consequences of embedded system failure escalate. Whether in avionics, medical, automotive, or SCADA systems, the slightest flaw can ripple down to a system failure and potential injury or loss of life. Technology integrated…

The Rise of the Type Zero Hypervisor

Virtualization offers great benefits for embedded designs, such as consolidating multiple systems into a single platform or separating applications of different security levels. However, the use of virtualization in high-security and high-reliability applications like mil/aero has been hindered by the limitations of mainstream Type 1 and Type 2 hypervisors. These…

Can Sensitive Data for Tactical Military Environments Be Protected in the Cloud?

On April 19, 2012, Posted by , In Recent White Paper & App Notes,

Louise Funke, Translattice Robert Day, LynuxWorks — April 19, 2012, originally published in Military Embedded Systems When storing, accessing, and disseminating military data in the cloud, top concerns include security, data reliability and redundancy, and data location. The good news is that these can be delivered when secure virtualization pairs…

Lynx Software Technologies Patented Technology Speeds Handling of Hardware Events

Patent #5,469,571 “Operating System Architecture using Multiple Priority Light Weight kernel Task-based Interrupt Handling.” Granted November 21, 1995 One of the most difficult challenges faced by designers of embedded systems is to meet real-time performance requirements. The interaction of multiple input-output (I/O) devices and system processes gives rise to complexities…

Building on 2011 – the Year that Secure Computing Came of Age

originally published in ElectronicsWeekly.com, 14 DECEMBER 2011 – 17 JANUARY 2012 High profile cyber attacks drove defence grade security software into the general IT market, writes Robert Day, vice-president of marketing at LynuxWorks Malware has become sophisticated in its entry, infection and damage mechanisms – and 2011 saw a dramatic…

Building in RTOS Support for Safety- & Security-Critical Systems

On August 27, 2011, Posted by , In Recent White Paper & App Notes,

Safety- and security-critical systems are both focused on building technology to protect peoples’ lives. But despite the similar critical nature of the two systems, they are designed to function in very different worlds.  With different environmental assumptions, different problem spaces, and different governing legislation, each system has its own unique…

Enhancing Application Performance on Multicore Systems

On February 17, 2011, Posted by , In Recent White Paper & App Notes,

originally published at Military Embedded Systems In a simple view of the world, an application running on a multicore system should run at least as fast as the same application runs on a single-core system with the same CPU power. Unfortunately, in practice, that is not the case. However, by…
