Virtualization Software Enables Development of RTOS Applications to Run Alongside Windows or Stand-Alone
Page 1 of 1
An updated release of INtime for Windows and the new INtime Distributed RTOS from TenAsys provide a new level of flexibility for embedded system developers in reducing system-level costs and adding scalability to PC-based embedded designs. With INtime Release 5, designers can now develop RTOS applications alongside Windows, or stand-alone RTOS applications with the same tools and familiar Microsoft Visual Studio integrated development environment. This gives users the flexibility to use and move INtime software code and applications across environments to INtime for Windows addressing applications with advanced Windows-based human-machine interfaces (HMIs) or INtime Distributed RTOS, ideal for running deeply embedded applications.
Key to the scalability that INtime enables is GOBSnet, a built-in inter-process communication mechanism that manages communications between a network of processing nodes. Using GOBSnet, developers distributed an application across diverse system solution, from a single-core system to a number of networked multicore systems. INtime Release 5 includes improvements in the node-to-node interfaces, such as a new optimized Message Queue, resulting in higher performance communications between nodes.
The new software release also supplements its existing USB stack implementation with a completely new USB stack, which includes support for USB 3.0 and the AHCI controllers found on the latest PC platforms. Also, the OS application interface has been improved for better performance and functionality.
