"LynuxWorks, Inc., formerly Lynx Real-Time Systems, today
announced a joint marketing agreement with ZF Linux Devices Inc.
to bundle LynuxWorks' BlueCat Linux and development tools with
ZF Linux' ZF MachZ Integrated Development System (IDS). The IDS is
designed for developing Internet and Post-PC devices based on the
ZF Linux Devices MachZ FailSafe PC-on-a-chip. The MachZ
includes the ZF Linux FailSafe boot ROM to eliminate the
possibility of system crashes."
"Developers will receive BlueCat Linux software and tools with
each IDS shipped. Other tools in the system include USB, ISA, PCI,
serial, parallel and IDE connectors, Red Hat Linux, the Phoenix
BIOS, Caldera DR-DOS and an open-source RTOS."
"In bringing the first true PC System-on-a-Chip to the market we
were determined to provide world-class software tools to our
customers," said David L. Feldman, ZF Linux Devices' president. "We
feel that the best way to shorten our customers' time-to-market is
to include the BlueCat Linux tools from LynuxWorks."
