Lynx Partners With ZF Linux Devices To Deliver BlueCat Linux With First FailSafe PC-on-A-Chip
Development System to Speed Design Internet and Post-PC Devices

New York, NY, June 26, 2000

LynuxWorks, Inc., formerly Lynx Real-Time Systems, today announced a joint marketing agreement with ZF Linux Devices Inc. to bundle LynuxWorks BlueCatô Linux and the LynuxWorksô development tools with ZF Linux Devices' ZF MachZô Integrated Development System (IDS). The IDS is designed for developing Internet and Post-PC devices based on the ZF Linux Devices MachZô FailSafe PC-on-a-Chip. The MachZ includes the ZF Linux Devices FailSafeô boot ROM to eliminate the possibility of system crashes.

Developers will receive BlueCatô Linux software and tools with each IDS shipped. Other software tools in the system include Red HatÆ Linux, the Phoenix BIOS, Caldera DR-DOS and an RTOS run-time license.

"In bringing the first true PC System-on-a-Chip to the market we were determined to provide world-class software tools to our customers," said David L. Feldman, ZF Linux Devices' president. "We feel that the best way to shorten our customers' time-to-market is to include the BlueCat Linux tools from LynuxWorks."

"ZF Linux Devices is among an elite group of entrepreneurial companies putting wheels on the powerful Linux engine," said Inder Singh, chairman and CEO for LynuxWorks. "We see this partnership as a significant endorsement of Lynx's leadership in the embedded Linux world."
