Nuremberg, Germany – At Embedded World here, TenAsys Corp. took the wraps off a new scalable distributed real-time OS designed to allow programmers to write applications that run on different system configurations without modification.
Called the INtime Distributed RTOS, it is based on the company’s established product, INtime for Windows, and is designed to run on s variety of configurations from single-core or multi-core processor systems to multi-platform systems with multi-core processors.
According to Kim Hartman, TenAsys VP of marketing and sales, the scalability of applications is made possible with the introduction of global objects and an underlying network called GOBSnet.
He said this inter-process communications technology enables real-time embedded applications to leverage the performance potential of the new 2nd Generation Intel processor family, which means that modules of performance-critical application code can be executed on their own processor cores.
For example, by using the Intel Core i7 processor with Intel IPP libraries, he said, one can perform real-time advanced signal processing applications on dedicated cores, essentially doing away with the need to have separate application-specific processors in a system.
