eSOL has added support for the ARM Cortex-R series of processors to its eCROS real-time OS-based integrated software platform.
Incorporating eSOL's eT-Kernel real-time OS, the core of eCROS, ensures proven real-time capability and high reliability in the ARM Cortex-R processor series-based systems, which are designed to meet the requirements of demanding real-time applications including automotive, factory automation, industrial equipment, and hard disk drives (HDDs).
With Cortex-R processor series support, eSOL now offers complete solutions for all Cortex (Cortex-A, Cortex-R and Cortex-M) processors.
The ARM Cortex-R processor series is targeted at real-time applications with strict response time requirements such as HDD controllers, wireless baseband processors, and electrical control units for automotive equipment.
Software developers working with the Cortex-R processor series can now take advantage of eSOL's highly reliable, proven eCROS with its eT-Kernel, the eBinder development tools, middleware (including network protocol stacks, and file systems with USB stacks), all supported by professional services.
The eT-Kernel ensures high reliability, utilizing the Cortex-R processor-series' lockstep mechanism to produce fault-tolerant systems. Developers can set the respective cores on a dual-core Cortex-R5 CPU to run independently or build asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) systems by installing two eT-Kernels on each core.
