Intel Alliance Recognizes LynuxWorks' Hypervisor Innovation With Technology Alignment Award

Intel Embedded and Communications Alliance Cites LynxSecure Separation Kernel for Its Exploitation of Virtualization and Trusted Execution Technology

NUREMBERG, GERMANY and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - EMBEDDED WORLD 2008 EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE -- The Intel® Embedded and Communications Alliance (Intel® ECA) recognized LynuxWorks' commitment to innovation by presenting the embedded software leader with the alliance's 2007 award for Overall Technology Alignment for a Software Provider at the recent 2007 Intel® ECA Congress.

LynuxWorks, Inc., a world leader in embedded software, received the award for its support of the Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT) and the Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (TET). A long-time member of the alliance, LynuxWorks received the award for its development and marketing of the LynxSecure separation kernel, and its support of VT and TET, which enables the execution of guest operating systems and applications in their own secure partitions.

"This technology alignment award from Intel® is a validation of our long-time commitment to stay on the cutting edge of embedded and enabling technologies such as virtualization and hypervisors," said Robert Day, vice president of marketing, LynuxWorks. "LynuxWorks has a long tradition of developing solutions that allow embedded developers to take full advantage of the latest innovations in the market. We are honored that Intel has recognized the efforts of our LynxSecure team in delivering and evangelizing virtualization technologies."

Intel® ECA Director Troy Smith said: "LynuxWorks has consistently delivered outstanding results in product development and marketing in connection with Intel's latest innovations. The technology alignment award recognizes LynuxWorks' continued performance in bringing innovative new products to market for developers of embedded applications."

Software separation and hardware virtualization technologies enable one operating system to run within the same environment as another, supporting multiple operating system environments on the same physical hardware. LynxSecure is a separation kernel that partitions data and systems resources, and controls information flow among the partitions. For users of LynxSecure technology on Intel®'s VT hardware there is ample execution performance when running one or more guest operating systems and applications in a virtualized or para-virtualized partition. The close pairing of both advanced hardware and software technologies offers the performance required by today's demanding software applications, and sets both companies as true technology leaders.
