Submitted by newsagent on Thu, 07/10/2003 - 22:39

Cybermetrix' CyFlex is a world-class, highly flexible test system currently in use at major engineering facilities in the U.S. and around the world. See our past news item for details about CyFlex. Cybermetrix recently struck a deal with Concurrent Engineering FL to port its flagship CyFlex product to RedHawk Linux real-time operating system. The new product is targeted for release in the 4th quarter of this calendar year.

Christine Mullholand, CEO of Cybermetrix, said "Using Concurrent's RedHawk Linux as a highly deterministic platform for CyFlex will ensure our customers continue to enjoy reliable, well-supported, and high performance test and measurement systems - with the added benefits of Concurrent's tools, applications and worldwide support."

Concurrent takes Redhat and then tweaks it for realtime operation and calls it Redhawk and packages it with their hardware. Using Linux will provide CyberMetrix with a marketing advantage over QNX thanks to Linux's popularity in recent years.
