eCROS platform now supports Xilinx Zynq-7000 EPP

eSOL's eCROS real-time OS-based integrated software platform now supports the Xilinx Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP). eCROS for Zynq-7000 EPP consists of the eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition real-time OS, tightly integrated eBinder development tools, middleware, and professional services. Zynq-7000 EPP, which combines the ARM Cortex-A9 multi-core processor and Xilinx FPGA technology, provides high performance and scalability.

eSOL will demonstrate eCROS for Zynq-7000 EPP at eSOL booth #West 6-14 at the Embedded Systems Expo May 9-11 at Tokyo Big Sight.

Software developers implementing the eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition OS with eSOL’s Blended Scheduling technology can produce flexible systems that enable SMP and AMP programs to coexist. Developers also can use open-source software assets such as Linux and TRON to reduce development time and cost. The eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition RTOS adds fast real-time response and high reliability for a wide array of Zynq-7000 EPP-based sophisticated embedded systems including automotive, industrial, and medical devices.

eCROS for Zynq-7000 EPP targets the ZC702 Evaluation Kit, which features the XC7Z020 CS484-1 EPP. eSOL will also provide USB host and device stacks, an SD memory card driver, and an Ethernet driver that supports peripheral devices.

The Blended Scheduling feature of the eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition blends the high-throughput capability of symmetric multi-processing (SMP) with the ability of asymmetric multi-processing (AMP) to ensure deterministic real-time response and permit the reuse of single-core processors’ software assets. Since its release in 2006, the eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition has been adopted for use in a wide variety of embedded systems, including car navigation systems.

Combining the eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition with eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition Memory Partitioning and eT-Kernel Temporal Partitioning ensures higher reliability in multi-core systems. The eT-Kernel Multi-Core Edition supports both POSIX and TRON open standard interfaces. The tightly integrated eBinder development environment provides a rich set of tools and functions to facilitate accurate multi-programming, which is important for multi-core software development, and debugging and analysis of complex multi-core systems. With eBinder, developers can develop high-quality multi-core software in less time and at lower cost.
