Bangalore, Karnataka, India, Monday, October 03, 2005 – (Business Wire India)

Cranes Software International Ltd., a global scientific & engineering products and solutions provider, and Mapusoft Technologies (MT) today announced the availability of OS Changer® and OS Abstractor® Software for the Indian embedded industry.

These globally renowned porting products and abstraction solutions were developed with the idea in mind that developers shouldn’t feel locked into a particular RTOS and should instead give users the freedom to move between RTOS’s while leveraging on the application programming interface knowledge that they are most familiar with.

Speaking on the launch of the new products in India, Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies said, “OS Changer makes this daunting task easier by providing developers a familiar API interface while hiding all the OS differences and help them get their product to market fast. With their proven track record and reputation in the market place, they will enable us to strategically expand our business in India and lead most importantly their customers to a win-win-win relationship. Cranes Software’s expertise in embedded software suites, along with their well designed service programs, will ensure full customer satisfaction.”

Cranes Software International Limited will be the authorized distributor for MapuSoft products in India and will make available OS Changer and OS Abstractor to the embedded industry through their nation-wide product distribution network.

“Through strategic partnerships and use of globally “best available” commercial technologies, Cranes Software continues to position itself as the preferred partner for embedded software products & support services. We are excited to be working with Mapusoft and are gearing up our operation to take advantage of a major growth opportunity” said Mr. Pradeep Kumar, Sr. Vice President Cranes Software International Ltd.

OS Changer Solutions allows developers to easily port existing code base to another RTOS and continue code development using the familiar API. By providing wrapper-less RTOS abstraction APIs, Unix-style device I/O APIs, and a set of core ANSI APIs, OS Changer provides an off-the-shelf RTOS integration solution that enables customers to re-use existing code base and port open source and/or other solutions to theirs easily. OS Changer greatly reduces development/testing efforts and related risks, and ensuring a smooth and successful RTOS transition, all of which are accomplished using a familiar API to get the job done much faster.

OS Abstractor Solutions allow developers to write code that can be easily adapted to multiple RTOS’s. OS Abstractor is available for Linux, iTRON, Nucleus PLUS®, ThreadX®, Precise/MQX® and other RTOS’s OS Abstractor consists of a set of RTOS-equivalent functions and Unix-style device I/O functions that are highly optimized for specific RTOS’s. Many of the kernel-equivalent RTOS functions are directly mapped to the underlying API and data structures, allowing the translations to occur during compile time, so that run-time performance can be kept intact. The interface to the underlying target RTOS is isolated in a single module to allow easy extension of support to a proprietary or preferred commercial RTOS.

MapuSoft Technologies LLC (MT) provides royalty-free tools and technical support that allow customers to quickly and easily move their products from one Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) to another. With expertise in the embedded RTOS market, MT is working hard to supply software that is practical, familiar, financially reasonable and easily operable. Our attention to engineering detail provides developers with robust software and requires minimal technical maintenance.
