Nürnberg, Germany TTTech (Vienna, Austria) and LynuxWorks (San Jose, CA) are working togther to provide integrated solutions based on the deterministic TTP communication bus and the LynxOS DO-178B certified RTOS.
A TTTech development board for hardware-in-the-loop simulation of aerospace test equipment, which supports simulation of a whole distributed network for aerospace applications with hard real-time requirements, is the first project to benefit from the partnership.
The TTTech TTP (Time-Triggered Protocol) bus is a bi-directional, partitioned and fault tolerant databus that offers deterministic performance up to 25Mbps. LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 features DO-178B level A-certification, partitioning, POSIX compliance, and ARINC 653 APplication EXecutive (APEX) support. Both address very directly the stability and standards compliance expectations of military and aerospace system developers seeking to build safety critical, certifiable applications.
Kurt Doppelbauer, Director of Sales Aerospace at TTTech, said, “LynxOS-178 and TTP are proven live flight systems, and this partnership was driven by customer demand for a complete solution from two best-in-class vendors.”
Robert Day, vice president of marketing at LynuxWorks, added, “Together we offer a partitioned operating system and a partitioned communication platform that allows easy and deterministic communication between modules.”
