BW: Lynx Donates Advanced Messaging Technology to Linux Open-Source Community

Feb 07, 2000, 20:42 (0 Talkback[s])

"Lynx Real-Time Systems, Inc., today announced the donation of Lynx Messenger for BlueCat(TM) Linux, its high-performance messaging technology, to the Linux open-source community to establish a new standard for advanced CompactPCI inter-board messaging in distributed and high availability (HA) systems."

"The Lynx Messenger technology provides developers of embedded systems the advantages of freely available open-source software with the quality certification from Lynx. The technology supports multiple operating systems and multiple network protocols, and it allows for the maximum flexibility in designing and deploying optimized distributed applications for telecommunications, data communications and the internet."

"Implemented as a kernel extension and associated Application Programming Interface (API) for messaging, Lynx Messenger is a technology that enables CPU boards (system and non-system) to exchange information on a peer-to-peer basis across the CompactPCI backplane. Lynx Messenger can also be used on a single CPU card to support communication between the host CPU and PMC intelligent I/O processors across the on-board PCI bus. This messaging API and technology is appropriate for loosely coupled cooperative processing applications and for the split processing of layered communications protocols."
