So You Think You Can Port?  
Featuring EmpressEmbedded Database and LynuxWorks’ LynxOS RTOS?


Beltsville, MD, October 26, 2009 — Empress Software, embedded database developer central and home of the Empress Embedded Database, and LynuxWorks™, a world leader in the embedded software market, announce immediate availability of Empress Ultra Embedded Database v10.20 on the latest LynxOS® RTOS 5.0. Empress Embedded Database and LynxOS RTOS (real time operating system) are the foundation for diverse embedded systems with hard real-time requirements from mission-critical military and aerospace applications, to advanced medical systems and diagnostic equipment, to high-tech industrial and process control systems.

Empress Embedded Database is an advanced, full-featured database engine specializing in embedded systems data management technology. With high-performance, small footprint and a variety of popular APIs (C, C++, SQL, ODBC, and Java), Empress is also unsurpassed in functionality. Empress is a reliable, zero-maintenance database that delivers predictable and deterministic response.

The LynxOS® RTOS 5.0 is the superior foundation for sophisticated real-time embedded systems, built upon more than two decades of RTOS experience. With LynxOS RTOS, developers can build applications and code that meet the most stringent military- and commercial-grade requirements for real-time mission critical applications. Code developed for LynxOS uses open standards and common formats like those found in Linux® POSIX®, and UNIX® systems, resulting in faster time-to-market and long term investment protection through open standards-based development.

“Our first port to LynxOS debuted over 15 years ago back in 1994 and we’ve been dancing beautifully ever since. The new port demonstrates our lasting commitment to supporting LynxOS,” states John Kornatowski, president of Empress Software. “Empress Embedded Database and LynxOS is a proven, winning combination, relied on for years by customers that have embedded Empress and LynxOS into their tireless systems and sent them out into the field including United Defense, Abbott Diagnostics, and Firestone.”

“Our long-standing working relationship with Empress has helped us deliver a proven real-time flexible database with a solid and reliable foundation for customers using embedded systems,” said Robert Day, VP Marketing, LynuxWorks. “Empress Embedded Database and LynxOS are an enduring choice for developers looking to create safe and compliant code for a wide variety of environments.”
