San Diego, Calif. Aonix has released the ObjectAda RAVEN for Windows, its next-generation embedded Ada development system, targeting the Wind River VxWorks 653 multi-partition RTOS for PowerPC. ObjectAda RAVEN features an enhanced safety-critical Ada runtime that communicates to the underlying RTOS through the ARINC-653 APEX interface available in the Wind River VxWorks 653 environment. This is said to enable high execution and safety certification efficiency.
ObjectAda RAVEN enables engineers to isolate and build applications for deployment in one or more VxWorks 653 execution partitions. This ability to segment code into separate execution partitions significantly impacts the cost of safety-critical certification since developers can separate the code subject to the highest levels of criticality from less-critical code and thereby separately test it for the appropriate level of certification, said Aonix.
ObjectAda RAVEN for Windows consists of a fully compliant ACATS 2.5 Ada 95 compiler with supporting tools including a build/bind tool, library tool and debugger, and delivers a predefined program library which conforms to the Ravenscar profile subset of the full predefined language. The ObjectAda RAVEN runtime environment is certifiable to DO-178B Level-A while supporting task execution through the underlying VxWorks 653 RTOS and board support services.
Aonix ObjectAda products give developers the choice between the traditional Aonix IDE for development and the new AonixADT Eclipse plug-in. Developers also gain full access to the Wind River Workbench environment including Ada debug and the ability to debug across multiple languages.
Pricing: Ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 for a single seat license depending on bundle options. Certification evidence is available based on demand and will be priced at that time. Quantity discounts are available.
