"LynuxWorks, formerly known as Lynx Real-Time Systems, is one of several companies focusing on using Linux in "embedded," non-PC computing devices such as factory robots, handheld computers and network routers. The acquisition of Integrated Software and Devices (ISD) will help LynuxWorks bolster its services offerings, especially in high-performance and crash-proof computers."

"The acquisition, if approved by shareholders, also will give LynuxWorks expertise working with Arm, MIPS and Motorola processors, a representative for the company said. Terms of the stock-for-stock deal were not disclosed."
