LONDON Wittenstein High Integrity Systems and InterNiche Technologies Inc. have signed a cross distribution agreement to provide improved access to the complete range of products from both companies.
Under the terms of the deal, both technology firms will now offer InterNiche's (Campbell, Calif.) broad range of protocol software and High Integrity Systems' (Bristol, UK) highly efficient operating systems with file system and USB support.
“InterNiche has offered support for all RTOSes and High Integrity Systems shares this belief in platform independence. We believe that our integration of OPENRTOS will result in the needs of developers being better served,” commented InterNiche president, Larry Larder.
David Brook, High Integrity Systems' head of sales and marketing added, “It's vital for embedded software developers to be able to quickly establish an environment for developing their application. By creating a one stop shop for embedded software, which works across a vast number of platforms, our customers can more easily and more quickly deliver innovative devices.”
InterNiche is an independent supplier of embedded protocol software with TCP/IP stacks, embedded device management software such as HTTP Server and SNMP and security modules such as IPSec and SSL.
High Integrity Systems is a supplier of real time operating systems that are based on the open source kernel, FreeRTOS. Its SafeRTOS is SIL3 pre-certified for safety critical applications. Its OpenRTOS CONNECT brings USB and FAT file system functionality with full commercial support to FreeRTOS, allowing developers to create applications for free before upgrading to benefit from the supported kernel. FreeRTOS was downloaded almost 80,000 times last year.
