San Jose, CA — (press release) — LynuxWorks, Inc., (formerly Lynx Real-Time Systems), a leader in embedded Linux and a pioneer in the open standards real-time operating system (RTOS) industry, today announced a definitive merger agreement with Integrated Software & Devices Corporation (ISDCorp), a leading supplier of system software, intellectual property, and software services for the embedded computing… market.

Under the terms of the agreement, LynuxWorks will acquire ISDCorp through a stock swap transaction whereby newly issued LynuxWorks shares will be swapped for all outstanding ISDCorp shares. The closing of the merger agreement is subject to customary conditions, including shareholder approvals.

In addition, LynuxWorks will now have Linux support for a wider variety of target processors including ARM and MIPS.

ISDCorp was founded in 1991 and has over nine years of experience supporting leading electronic OEMs with operating system ports and device drivers for their embedded systems.

Subsequent to the merger, Reza Soliman-Noori, chairman and CEO of ISDCorp, will serve as president of ISDCorp and vice-chairman of the combined companies, Dr. William Hogan will continue to serve as president of LynuxWorks, and Art Swift of ISDCorp will assume the position of chief operating officer for LynuxWorks.
