MapuSoft Technologies Announces the Newest Release of OS Changer 2.7

A Streamlined Software Tool that Provides Developers the flexibility to Reuse Code-base on a Variety of RTOSs. Release 2.7 extends support to Precise/MQX™ RTOS from ARC™ International

March 03, 2003, MOBILE, AL – MapuSoft Technologies, L.L.C. today announced the release of OS Changer® 2.7, a cross RTOS development/target solution that provides developers the flexibility to reuse code-base across a variety of RTOSs while reducing significantly associated development and maintenance costs. OS Changer 2.7 now supports porting legacy VxWorks® and pSOS® applications to the Precise/MQX™ operating system. OS Changer 2.7 also extends OS abstraction API support to Precise/MQX™ allowing developers to write one set of code-base that is independent of the underlying OS and instantly suitable for multiple RTOSs.

“Whether you have legacy code or are writing new, OS Changer will expand your OEM product’s market-share by instantly adding support to multiple RTOSs without the associated huge development and maintenance costs,” said Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. “Develop your software on the RTOS you like, but use the one for the target that provides a better value.”

OS Changer for Precise/MQX™ was tested on ARM®, MIPS®, PPC® and ARCtangent™ targets using Metaware® and Metrowerks® tools. Testing also included over 30 internal test applications along with a few real world applications from our customers.

“Why pay huge royalty fees and be tied to a single RTOS vendor?” asks Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. “OS Changer for Precise/MQX™ is a low-cost, royalty free RTOS migration solution that is very straightforward to use. We are very excited to work with ARC™ International and their world class Precise/MQX™ product suites.”

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 2.7 is available now and is provided royalty-free in full source-code format. Pricing for individual components starts at $3995. The OS Changer abstraction solution for each RTOS port starts at $9995. Contact MapuSoft Technologies for information about products and technical support via email at or by phone at 251.665.0280.
