BW: ObjecTime Introduces Support for Linux-Based Embedded Systems

“ObjecTime Limited, the leading provider of engineering
automation tools for distributed embedded software systems, today
announced that applications built with Rational Rose(R) RealTime
can now be run on the Linux(TM) operating system.”

With the introduction of Linux support, ObjecTime expands
customer choice, adding this important new operating system to its
market leading set of supported targets.

“We are very excited to hear about this new Linux port from
ObjecTime,” said Fred Hartgraves, Software Engineering Manager at
ADC Telecommunications, a leading global supplier of voice, video
and data systems. “We have developed several embedded products
using software tools from ObjecTime, and I can easily envisage a
scenario where we’ll need to move existing functionality to a Linux
board. This port will be perfect as it means we won’t have to
change our complex application at all, just recompile it.”

“It was just a matter of time before Linux made it into the
embedded systems world. Unix came out of the telecommunications
industry — and it’s only natural that developers would want to
build applications that are targeted to Linux” said Paul Zorfass
principal embedded analyst at IDC/FTI. “Their tools will aid in
further deploying robust Linux solutions.”
