LynxSecure support for new Intel Core i7 processors

LynuxWorks has announced that its LynxSecure separation kernel and embedded hypervisor will support the new Intel Core i7 processor family. This combination will provide embedded developers across many industries the performance and security enhancements they require for their next generation of products.

The Intel Core i7 is based on 32nm process technology and features intelligent performance, power efficiency, integrated graphics and error correcting code (ECC) memory on industry standard x86 architecture.

LynxSecure is a separation kernel and embedded hypervisor that provides an environment in which multiple guest operating systems and their applications can execute at the same time, in their own virtual partitions.

LynxSecure takes advantage of many of the key hardware features in Intel's chips to make sure that real time performance and determinism is maintained, while offering near native performance for traditional desktop operating systems such as Windows and Linux that run on the same platform.

The Intel Core i7 processor family features multicore processing with performance enhancing capabilities, including Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper Threading technology. In addition to being software compatible with previous IA-32 processors, the i7 processor family includes Advanced Encryption Standard Instructions, designed to help to accelerate data encryption and decryption. The new Intel processors also include an integrated graphics engine and an integrated memory controller which provides a two chip platform to use in designing virtualised solutions.
