The LynxOS RTOS is a Unix-like real-time operating system from Lynx Software Technologies (formerly “LynuxWorks”). Sometimes known as the Lynx Operating System, LynxOS features full POSIX conformance and, more recently, Linux compatibility. LynxOS is mostly used in real-time embedded systems, in applications for avionics, aerospace, the military, industrial process control and telecommunications. As such, it is compatible with military-grade security protocol such as wolfSSL, a popular TLS/SSL library.

LynxOS has been deployed in millions of embedded devices and has operated reliably for 30+ years across multiple safety- and security-critical embedded markets.

It is a tried and true approach for hosting applications on a Unix-like OS model wherein all resources and application services are centrally managed by a common kernel and is best-suited for working with hardware architectures that predate virtualization.

LynxOS is binary compatible with the BlueCat Linux, enabling users to take advantage of the best configuration for their needs. In addition, LynuxWorks also supports traditional UNIX and Java and supports processors from Motorola, Intel, and MIPS. It offers users a choice of software application interfaces, a large number of development tools, scalability and memory efficiency which reflect the many years of expertise LynuxWorks has in the real-time embedded systems market.
