Lynx Software Technologies’ mission-critical operating systems including LynxOS and LynxOS-178 offer the most secure, reliable design of any commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded operating system and with their POSIX API are the most open, hard RTOS available. LynxOS-178 is the only time- and space-partitioned RTOS that has been awarded the FAA Reusable Software Component (RSC) certification and targets both the Intel® x86 and PowerPC® platforms.
Our LynxOS-178 secure RTOS provides APIs for the FACE™ (Future Airborne Capability Environment). Lynx Software Technologies is already delivering technology to the avionics industry such as real-time operating systems (RTOS) and software tools for mission-critical systems that are open, modular and portable, key tenets of the reference architecture defined in the FACE Technical Standard.
REUSABLE SOFTWARE COMPONENT (RSC)
DO-178B Reusable Software Component (RSC) is a software collection that is recognized as meeting the requirements of RTCA/DO-178B and that may be used on more than one project without having to regenerate certification artifacts. The LynxOS-178 RTOS is the first and only COTS operating system to receive acceptance for reusability from the FAA for DO-178B certification
LynxOS-178 RTOS conforms to the ARINC 653-1 Application Executive Software (APEX) Interface defined by the ARINC 653-1 standard. LynxOS-178 provides the following system service groups in accordance with the ARINC 653-1 standard.
SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS FOR AVIONICS:
- LynxOS – hard real-time operating system (RTOS) with POSIX® conformance and Linux® application support for ultra-reliable real-time systems.
- LynxOS-178 – the only POSIX-conformant, DO-178B certifiable RTOS, used extensively in military and aerospace real-time systems.
