RadiSys Launches Microware OS-9 for PowerPC v4.2 for Industrial Control

4/25/2003 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced availability of Microware OS-9 for PowerPC v4.2. The RadiSys Microware OS-9 for PowerPC is a complete solution designed for OEMs who are developing PowerPC-based products such as industrial control and factory automation, interactive and web terminal POS kiosks and test and measurement equipment. RadiSys has enhanced the Microware OS-9 for PowerPC solution with expanded features including a new dual IPv6/IPv4 network stack and upgrade to Borland's CodeWright 7.0 for the Hawk IDE.

OEMs are continually on the lookout for tools and technologies that can help reduce development costs and shorten time to market. The Microware OS-9 for PowerPC solution is equipped with embedded RTOS, drivers, board support packages, development tools and middleware, which allows developers to hit the ground running. There is no need to validate tools and software. Instead, developers can spend their precious time designing intellectual property and features that differentiate their products.

"This product release builds on the success we've had with our entire line of OS-9 products," said Richard Smith, vice president for RadiSys. "By including IPv6 support, upgrading the development tools, and leveraging OS-9's superior system reliability and security, RadiSys continues to offer a compelling solution for embedded and real-time application developers using PowerPC hardware."

OEMs using Microware OS-9 for PowerPC will not only shorten their time-to-market, but they can also lengthen the life of their products, once in the field. OS-9 is based on modular architecture meaning software updates can easily be made. OEMs can load updated, or completely new functions, into the field-deployed OS-9 system at run time, even while the product is online and in use. In addition, the OS-9 secure, process-model architecture offers OEMs a superior platform for system reliability and security.
