LINDON, Utah - Jan. 22, 2001 - Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in embedded
Linux tools, real-time and high availability solutions, today announced
the availability of Embedix™ RM, industrial shared memory software for
Linux. The combination of Embedix RM with Embedix RealTime allows the
design of high-speed computing or data acquisition and control based completely
 on Linux and low-cost standard networking hardware.

Integrating modern computing power with standard networking hardware,
a powerful configuration GUI and the Linux operating system, Embedix RM
supports the development and deployment of many applications such as:
flight simulation, industrial control systems, high-speed data acquisition
devices, other applications which employ a distributed computing environment.

"Embedix RM is a high-performance, low-cost solution for Linux that provides
an easy to configure and deploy reflective memory system," said David
Beal, Lineo product manager. "This shared memory capability provides a
critical component to the industrial automation, data acquisition and
simulation arenas, especially when combined with the reliable performance
of Linux, or for more challenging tasks, with Lineo's high performance
real-time solution."

The process of building data sharing solutions around standard networking
protocols can be laborious. Embedix RM's GUI simplifies the build process
by transparently configuring and managing memory, data, packet, network,
read/write access, scheduling and redundancy. The inclusion of distributed
memory capability into a developer's application is conveniently handled
by an automatically generated C header file. Interface with each memory
block is accomplished via industry-standard, POSIX shared memory API.
Embedix RM is also suitable for embedded applications, adding less than
60 KB to the target system.

Pricing and Availability
Embedix RM is now available as a stand-alone product and will be available
in the future as an add-on module to the Embedix SDK. Embedix RM has a
licensing fee of $1500, plus a per node fee of $500 each for the first
two nodes and $149 for the third and subsequent nodes. For additional
