Objective Interface Systems, Inc. (OIS) has announced that its ORBexpress product now supports Wind River’s VxWorks 6.9 real-time operating system (RTOS) with symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) on multicore platforms. ORBexpress is a high performance, secure real-time implementation of the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) standard, providing a common communication platform that is available on a variety of processors, operating systems, compilers, and in C++, Ada, Java and VHDL for FPGA implementations.
ORBexpress has a multithreaded communications architecture that is designed to scale in a multicore environment. It supports multithreading by making more efficient use of shared resources.
