Pittsburgh, PA -- November 9, 2004 -- TimeSys® Corporation, a leader in embedded Linux® technologies and development tools, today announced the immediate availability of the Eclipse 3.0-based TimeStorm® Linux Development Suite (LDS) and TimeStorm Linux Verification Suite (LVS), powerful development and testing tools that support every step in the embedded development process. TimeStorm LDS and LVS work with all embedded Linux distributions and the hundreds of available plug-ins for the Eclipse 3.0 Framework, giving developers the flexibility to create the development and testing environment of their choice.

Based on Eclipse 3.0 and CDT 2.0, TimeStorm LDS and LVS include an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and together support a complete suite of features to streamline development and testing. TimeStorm LDS enables developers to quickly develop embedded applications or port any Linux distribution to any target platform. TimeStorm LVS includes more than 2,200 ready-to-run system tests for all Linux distributions and sophisticated testware for validating applications and Linux distributions on embedded boards.

"With the Eclipse 3.0-based TimeStorm LDS and LVS, TimeSys continues to deliver solutions to accelerate the adoption of embedded Linux," said TimeSys CEO Larry Weidman. "By supporting all Linux distributions and tying in to leading third party tools, TimeStorm gives developers the power to rapidly get embedded applications to market using the development and testing environment best suited to their needs."
