MapuSoft announces support for Timesys Linux

June 16th, 2004, MOBILE, AL – MapuSoft Technologies, L.L.C. today announced the support of TimeSys’ embedded Linux distributions and TimeStorm® tools with MapuSoft’s OS Changer® and OS Abstractor® solutions. The initial release supports a common interface for porting legacy code to TimeSys Linux . MapuSoft is the leading providing of compatibility and abstraction products for use with embedded real-time operating systems. TimeSys Corporation is a leading supplier of embedded Linux and development and testing tools to embedded markets.

“TimeSys is making strong contribution to the embedded Linux community. OS Changer will have a significant impact on developers wanting to use Linux in their embedded projects with TimeSys Linux distributions,” said Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies.

OS Changer tools hide RTOS differences and allow developers to focus on product development . OS Changer simplifies porting and saves developers from future porting efforts. The OS Changer family of products gives users the freedom to switch RTOSs and reuse existing application code, enabling their product to get to market faster with lower development costs. The Mapusoft products come in the form of API libraries that are fully scalable and readily usable within an application. They do not require modification of the underlying RTOS and they directly access the internal RTOS kernel objects to provide the best performance along with a low memory footprint.

“Migrating proprietary RTOS applications to Linux helps businesses cut costs and take advantage of new technologies,” said Larry Weidman, TimeSys chief executive officer. “MapuSoft’s OS Changer helps simplify this migration by enabling companies to leverage their existing RTOS code base while still getting all of the business and performance advantages of Linux.”
