LynuxWorks will initially support the Eclipse open source community by helping increase an industry focus on Eclipse based embedded development products while evaluating how the company can leverage some of its own products into relevant Eclipse projects. Prior to officially joining the foundation, LynuxWorks was an early adopter of the Eclipse framework.
The company's Eclipse based product called Luminosity is a full-featured Java-based integrated development environment (IDE) and was released in 2005.
Designed to accelerate time to market for embedded system developers, Luminosity supports LynuxWorks comprehensive portfolio of open standards based operating systems including LynxOS 4.x, BlueCat Linux 5.x and LynxOS-178 solutions.
In addition to developing products based on the Eclipse framework, LynuxWorks' executive evangelism for the foundation has been gaining steady momentum.
LynuxWorks Chairman and CEO Dr Inder Singh has publicly supported the Eclipse ideology in various industry articles.
In addition, Robert Day, Vice President of Marketing for LynuxWorks, has been very active as Co-chair of the Eclipse Embedded Workgroup, has published several articles on the Eclipse framework and will also be presenting a paper titled: 'Eclipse: under the hood' at the Embedded Systems Conference in Silicon Valley.
