TapRoot Systems has joined LynuxWorks’ SynergyWorks Alliance Program, which is expected to produce high performance technology that customers can use to develop products by focusing on key features rather than on software integration.

SynergyWorks is a LynuxWorks alliance network of hardware and software third-party solutions. SynergyWorks is designed to use the collaborative efforts of LynuxWorks and providers of BlueCat Linux- and LynxOS-compatible products.

“We are excited to be an integral part of the SynergyWorks Alliance,” TapRoot President Blane Rockafellow said in a statement. “This is just the first step in what we expect to be a strong relationship in developing solutions with LynxOS embedded operating systems that will jointly address the needs of all of our customers.”

Privately held TapRoot Systems is an embedded software and firmware developer that allows the integration of hardware with the selected operating systems. Founded in 2000 in Morrisville by Rockafellow and others, the profitable TapRoot has been designing low-level infrastructure of real-time and embedded products for semiconductor manufacturers, operating systems vendors, protocol stack vendors, wireless mobile device manufacturers and other embedded product developers worldwide. The 15-employee company also offers wireless telephony software products to accelerate time-to-market for customers.

Based in San Jose, LynuxWorks is in the embedded software market, providing operating systems, software development products and consulting services for communications, aerospace/defense and consumer products companies. Established in 1988, the company is a founding member of the real-time operating systems industry, and a participant in the Embedded Linux Consortium.
