Lynx also announced the first board products it is supporting with the new processor, from Kontron and Mercury Systems.
Because of the nature of safety certification, it is more straightforward to certify a processor with fewer, higher-performance CPU cores than one that incorporates a larger quantity of lower-performance cores.
The 11th Generation Intel Core processors extends the performance range supported by this joint Intel-Lynx solution, which starts with Intel Atom at the lower end, up to the latest Intel Xeon processor, which means that customers can use the same technology across platforms to address a diverse set of performance points.
The on-chip graphics technology on this processor is also a compelling feature as customers look to drive system performance, reduce power and footprint of electronics, and simplify their supply chain.
“We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Lynx through its support of our latest Core Gen 11 CPU,” said Tony Franklin, GM Federal and Aerospace Group, Intel. “As avionics systems become even more complex, the availability of a solution like LYNX MOSA.ic for Avionics is key to controlling the time and costs associated with the development, certification and deployment of mission critical electronics. With Lynx’s support of Intel Atom and now the 11th generation Intel Core processors, there is an Intel solution to fit any avionics project.”
LYNX MOSA.ic for Avionics is a set of Lynx software, third-party technology and tools that Lynx has proven to reliably work together for rapidly building robust avionics systems.
The platform is founded on the company’s lightweight hypervisor, LynxSecure, which was developed according to DO-178C DAL A standards and supports ARINC 653 architecture requirements. LYNX MOSA.ic also adheres to the Modular Open Systems Approach laid out by the U.S. Department of Defense, with open flexibility that enables real-time developers to efficiently bring to market complex hardware and software platforms.
Commenting Gurgot Singh, CEO, Lynx Software Technologies, said, “Avionics lies at the very heart of what we do; our expansion of LYNX MOSA.ic for Avionics to include the latest Intel processor is testament to this heritage.”
