LONDON Time-triggered technologies specialist TTTech Computertechnik AG (Vienna, Austria) and embedded computing group GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms have teamed to develop and sell companies in the aerospace and defense electronics sectors systems combing the Austrian group's TTEthernet technology and GE Fanuc platforms.
"Together we can make this embedded communication alternative available to Military/Aerospace Systems Designers worldwide," commented Ben Daniel, Avionics Product Manager at GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms.
GE Fanuc's products include single board computers, communication and networking I/O modules, avionics interfaces, graphics and video processors, and fully integrated application ready computer systems.
Key benefits of TTTech's time-triggered technologies for integrated systems include inherently higher throughput, complexity reduction, excellent scalability and reduction of system life-cycle costs.
The Austrian group has been working hard on joint development and marketing initiatives in several areas for its real-time networking technology. For instance, In April, TTTech said it had teamed with NASA to support the space agency's work on and need for dependable integrated embedded systems.
The collaboration is targeted at developing an open Ethernet-based standard suitable for deployment in upcoming NASA programs and space systems and will also use TTTech's recently developed TTEthernet networking technology that combines commercial available Ethernet infrastructure with TTTech's time-triggered services.
