The company was founded in 1996 out of Carnegie Mellon University and is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company was initially known for providing the industry's first real-time enhanced embedded Linux distribution, known as TimeSys Linux/RT. A pioneer and industry leader in embedded Linux solutions, TimeSys joined the OSDL in 2003, and in 2004, was the first to register a carrier-grade Linux distribution. In 2005, TimeSys open-sourced their intellectual property as a means to embrace the open source embedded Linux community, and at that time, the company also launched its flagship product, LinuxLink.
LinuxLink is a software development framework that helps embedded software development teams configure, patch, build and maintain an open source Linux platform. It includes a Linux kernel, GNU toolchain, packages and libraries and development tools. Subscribers are also provided with regular updates, extensive "How-To" documentation and support. All Linux platform components and updates are open source and are provided through the LinuxLink Factory custom platform builder.
