Wind River acquires hard real-time Linux technology

Wednesday, 02 May, 2007

Wind River Systems has acquired the intellectual property including patents, copyrights, trademarks and associated product rights for RTLinux, the software industry's only commercially-available, patented, hard real-time Linux technology developed by Finite State Machine Labs, Inc.

Wind River has also acquired rights to future runtime revenue streams for RTLinux users in the embedded applications field.

As a result of this purchase agreement, Wind River will offer Linux users hard real-time functionality tightly integrated with its Linux-based device software platforms.

RTLinux technology enables hard real-time response times for applications ranging from single-core feature phones, high bandwidth IP communications, robotics and industrial control.

Once available, the combination of RTLinux technology and Wind River's Linux device software platforms will provide device manufacturers with mature, proven technology for developing complex, next-generation Linux-based applications that require hard real-time functionality.
