Scalable Real-Time OS

TenAsys Corporation (Beaverton, OR) has announced a new scalable real-time OS called INtime® Distributed RTOS. Based on INtime for Windows®, INtime Distributed RTOS enables programmers to write applications that run without modification on different system configurations from single-core or multi-core processor systems to multi-platform systems with multi-core processors. The scalability of applications using INtime Distributed RTOS is made possible with the introduction of global objects and an underlying network called GOBSnet. This inter-process communications technology enables real-time embedded applications to leverage the performance potential of the new 2nd Generation Intel® processor family. Now, modules of performance-critical application code can be executed on their own processor cores.

Separation Kernel and Embedded Hypervisor

LynuxWorks™ (San Jose, CA) has introduced LynxSecure 5.0, a new separation kernel and hypervisor that adds performance increases for fully virtualized guest operating systems (OSes) by utilizing new hardware technologies and offering 64-bit and Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) guest OS virtualization support. Software virtualization is commonly used on servers in Information Technology (IT) centers to gain a benefits such as equipment consolidation, ease of management, and the support of legacy applications. By implementing a new secure device virtualization mechanism, managed from a secure partition on LynxSecure, limited physical devices can now be virtualized and shared between guest OSes. By using LynxSecure’s policy-driven, inter-partition communication mechanism, the performance and security of the shared devices such as network, USB, HDD and graphics is optimized, bringing the benefits of security and virtualization to resource-limited client systems, such as laptop PCs or embedded devices.

Oscilloscope in a DIP Module

Saelig Company (Pittsford, NY) has introduced Xprotolab - the first mixed-signal oscilloscope with an arbitrary waveform generator housed in a tiny 1" x 1.6" DIP module. It can be mounted directly on a breadboard or PCB for in situ testing and verification. Based on Atmel's ATXMEGA32A4 microcontroller, with 32KB Flash, 4KB SRAM, 1KB EEPROM, Xprotolab can also be used as a development board for the AVR's XMEGA microcontroller. Xprotolab uses a 0.96" 128 x 64 pixel OLED display to provide the functions of an 8-bit mixed-signal oscilloscope with simultaneous sampling of analog and digital signals, providing 2 analog channels and 8 digital channels. It also offers Arbitrary Waveform Generator capabilities. The maximum input voltage is +/-10V with a maximum sampling rate of 2MSa/s, giving an analog bandwidth of 320kHz.

SATA-based VME Disk Module

Elma Electronic Systems division (Fremont, CA) now offers the SATA-based EDM2, a dual-slot 6U VME storage module that retains the SCSI interface while adding the latest in 2.5" SATA drive technology. The new module appears to the system as a legacy SCSI drive via an onboard Ultra320 SCSI interface, while incorporating higher capacity and readily available 2.5" SATA drive technology. The EDM2 supports either one or two 2.5" solid state drives with a board capacity of up to 256 GB or one or two rotating drives with a board capacity up to 2 TB. The EDM2 can attain board level transfer rates up to 44 MB/sec. and is available with extended temperature capability from 0°C to 70°C, drive type dependent.
