"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."
