MapuSoft Technologies Announces the New Release of OS Changer 3.0

A Streamlined Software Tool that Provides Developers the Flexibility to Write New Embedded Applications Suitable for Multiple RTOS and Reuse Various Legacy Code-base. Release 3.0 adds RTOS portability and legacy code-migration solutions to Linux®

November 24, 2003, MOBILE, AL – MapuSoft Technologies today announced the release of OS Changer 3.0, a cross RTOS development/target solution that provides developers the flexibility to develop and reuse legacy code across a variety of RTOSs.

“Who has the time & budget for developer training or to take-on a long-term porting project?” asks Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. “OS Changer greatly reduces cost and time-to-market by allowing you to re-use your existing software easily over Linux and other popular RTOS platforms instantly”.

OS Changer 3.0 adds Multi-RTOS Abstraction API that allows developers to write one set of code that is highly optimized for several popular RTOSs and now Linux. Current release supports application migration path from VxWorks®, pSOS® and Nucleus PLUS® to several Linux platforms. Implementation is based on POSIX 1003.1a, 1003.1b and 1003.1c layers to provide the necessary portability across various Linux distributions. Further optimizations and tighter integrations are optionally available over selected Linux distributions.

“Cutting cost seems to be a strong motivator for developers moving to LINUX. Also, a wealth of CPU support, device driver support and network solutions that are easily available on LINUX make this an attractive choice. Adding support for Linux in OS Changer 3.0 makes this move easier than ever ” says Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies.

OS Changer tools hide the RTOS differences and allow developers to focus on their product development. OS Changer simplifies porting and also saves developers from future porting efforts. The OS Changer family of products gives users the freedom to switch RTOSs and greatly reuse existing code base to enable their product to get to the market faster with lower development costs. These products come in the form of individual compatibility and/or abstraction API libraries that are fully scalable and readily usable within an application. OS Changer does not require modification to the underlying RTOS products.

OS Changer 3.0 is available now. OS Changer single API component can be licensed at $4995 for first developer and $1995 subsequent developers. OS Changer suites (all APIs) for a specific RTOS are licensed at $9995 for first developer and $1995 thereafter.
