TimeSys Announces Major Upgrade to Embedded Linux Developer Suite; Continuously-updated Resource Is The Only Embedded Linux Solution Addressing Entire Development Lifecycle.

PITTSBURGH -- TimeSys(R) Corporation, the leading developer service provider for the embedded Linux market, today announced the latest update to LinuxLink with the release of a major, standards-based Eclipse and CDT upgrade to Developer Suite. LinuxLink by TimeSys(TM) is the first commercial offering to support the majority of embedded developers who build and assemble their own commercial-grade custom Linux platforms. Developer Suite is the tool of choice for cross development and leverages the benefits of LinuxLink to work with the latest versions of Linux kernels and tool chains, while simplifying every step in the development process.

This latest update based on Eclipse 3.1 and CDT 3.0.1, provides an end to end solution from kernel hacking to platform application development. Interoperability with a broad collection of third-party plug-ins in the Eclipse ecosystem addresses the primary problems and unique challenges faced by embedded developers. TimeSys was the first to release eclipse-based tools for the embedded Linux market nearly four years ago and has maintained a leadership position with the most comprehensive Eclipse solution. Developer Suite delivers an unparalleled embedded Linux solution with best of breed root file system design, system profiling and debugging.

"TimeSys has been a leader in adopting and promoting Eclipse and CDT for embedded Linux development," said Larry Weidman, CEO TimeSys. "As the Eclipse platform has matured, TimeSys has continued to innovate and extend the Eclipse platform to provide comprehensive support across the embedded Linux development project lifecycle: driver development, application development, Linux verification and platform optimization. The LinuxLink Developer Suite combines the power of an industry leading IDE solution with sophisticated web based tools for creating and maintaining Linux platforms over multiple product release cycles."

While the Developer Suite provides all the functionality expected in standards-based tools offerings, TimeSys continues to provide innovative features that are targeted specifically for embedded Linux developers. This unique strategy for embedded tools attracted a loyal customer base and continues to capture adoption with LinuxLink subscribers. Developer Suite provides the following key benefits to embedded Developers:

--Stable, proven support for cross-platform application and Linux driver development from Linux and Windows-based hosts

--Sophisticated root file system design tool supporting multiple file system formats and runtime package types

--Industry leading support for embedded system profiling

--Consolidated target management with support for a wide variety of remote communication protocols

--Simplified validation of Linux deployed on embedded platforms

--LinuxLink integration and validation across all TimeSys LinuxLink products
