Santa Barbara, Calif.
- Real-Time Innovation's DDS-compliant middleware now offers optimized support for Green Hills Software’s latest release of its safety and security-certified INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS). This includes advanced support for Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) and Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP). RTI will also offer standard release support for the INTEGRITY RTOS on a broad range of microprocessor families, including those based on Intel Architecture (Core i3, i5, i7, Atom and Xeon) and a wide range of Power Architecture microprocessors.
RTI allows INTEGRITY users to deliver devices and systems that comply with the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard, the leading standard for real-time systems integration. A broad range of industries and programs have standardized on DDS to enable integration of heterogeneous real-time applications, including in aerospace, defense, power systems, industrial control and transportation.
DDS significantly reduces integration time and cost relative to traditional custom-built integration approaches. DDS applications communicate using the flexible publish-and-subscribe communication model. Applications simply publish the data they produce (for example, sensor data or commands) and subscribe to the data they consume. DDS middleware automatically discovers and connects publishers and subscribers at run-time. Individual applications do not require any knowledge of each other, making DDS well-suited for dynamic and ad hoc systems.
“A wide range of embedded systems are now essential components of the enterprise,” said Dan Mender, vice president of business development, Green Hills Software. “Consequently, they must be easy to integrate with a broad range of disparate applications without compromising the safety and security of the embedded system. RTI Data Distribution Service executing within the separation policies core to the INTEGRITY RTOS architecture makes this possible, while also giving INTEGRITY users a true ‘plug-and-play’ integration capability.”
