TenAsys has launched release 5 of it's INtime real-time operating system software, including INtime for Windows and the new INtime Distributed real time operating system (RTOS).
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
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.
The OS application interface has also been improved for better performance and functionality.
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.
“INtime for Windows and INtime Distributed RTOS environments are
designed to work together such that one can be an extension of the other
if needed,” said Kim Hartman, TenAsys Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
“This enables OEMs to scale their embedded system applications to
address multiple cost/performance options. It is the only RTOS family
that can support scalability of processor power in this manner.”
INtime Release 5 is shipping now.
