congatec has acquired Real-Time Systems (RTS), a leading provider of hypervisor software for real-time applications in the embedded market. RTS will become a wholly owned subsidiary of congatec. The company will continue to operate independently, doing business as it always has, providing its software to run on any x86 hardware, but now with worldwide sales and technical support teams ready to support the product.
Real-Time Systems’ customers are OEMs from markets such as robotics, automation, mechanical engineering, medical technology or test and measurement systems. New markets further arise from the increasing real-time requirements of IIoT and Industry 4.0 applications as well as real-time broadcasting and streaming. Other customers are embedded computer technology manufacturers who qualify the platforms they develop as ODMs for OEMs for the RTS Hypervisor.
