Lynx Software Technologies, a specialist in platform software technologies, has announced that it has expanded its LynxSecure Separation Kernel Hypervisor support for Arm-based NXP Semiconductors processor architectures.
Lynx has ported LynxSecure onto the NXP QorIQ Layerscape 1046A (LS1046A) multicore communication processor integrating quad 64-bit Arm Cortex-A72 cores. LynxSecure support for NXP’s LS1046A joins the already existing support for NXP S32V234 MPSoC.
Commenting, Geoff Waters, Senior Principal Engineer at NXP Semiconductors and Chairman of the NXP- led Multicore for Avionics Working Group said, “Multicore architectures are seeing increasing adoption in avionics systems due to performance requirements and the lack of availability of single core processors. NXP is leading the way in enabling the adoption of multicore processors in safety critical design contexts. The porting of LynxSecure separation kernel hypervisor technology is an important step forward. It offers an exceptional technology for managing the complexity associated with multicores, reducing the design and certification time for safety critical systems based on NXP Layerscape SoCs.”
David Beal, Director of Product Marketing at Lynx Software Technologies, added, “Increasingly, avionics, transportation and other safety-critical systems rely on redundant platforms. Now, system architects and engineers who have strict requirements around performance, safety and security can take full advantage of the features and capabilities offered by NXP LS1046A within a straight-forward, secure-by-design software systems architecture that is enabled by LYNX MOSA.icTM. The combination results in high performance and immutable security while preserving modularity and providing a natural path for future software-migration as newer, processing platforms become available.”
The LynxSecure separation kernel forms the foundation of the LYNX MOSA.ic framework to address markets such as avionics, transportation, industrial and medical systems. The LYNX MOSA.ic enables complex, systems that are responsible for both critical and non-critical functions. The modular and easily understandable architecture reduces system design, integration, test and certification efforts.
