VenturCom Updates RTX Embedded Development Software for Windows

11/16/2004 - VenturCom, a global leader in designing and developing software solutions that enhance the control, dependability and management of Windows® operating systems, announced the immediate availability of its updated RTX embedded software for Windows application development. RTX is a real-time extension for Windows NT/2000/XP that provides high-speed, deterministic real-time capabilities for Windows. VenturComís RTX (Real-time Extension) 6.0.1 enhances existing RTX functionality by extending support for Windows® XPTM Professional Service Pack 2, as well as support for Intelís® Hyper-threading technology.

RTX provides a common and easy-to-use real-time application programming interface. Developers creating applications for Windows environments who require a development and execution environment with traditional real-time operating system features, including high performance, reliability and determinism, need the ability to know in advance how data will be manipulated by the target computer.

RTX adds a finer degree of task scheduling and timing control to Windows NT, Windows NT Embedded, Windows 2000, and Windows XP. The added control enables engineers of next-generation communications, office automation, industrial, medical, and entertainment equipment to reliably develop and deploy high-performance, mission-critical applications that run on Windows.

Windows user-mode applications access hardware directly, are paged to and from the disk and run under the Windows thread scheduler. VenturComís RTX Version 6.0.1 provides two key upgrades for customers:

RTX enhances Windowsí universally adopted look and feel with features that give developers real-time determinism, dependability and the ability to reduce system costs by eliminating the need for customized or specialized hardware platforms. RTX accelerates application time to market through intuitive development tools that easily integrate into standard Windows IDEs, and increases overall performance with the smallest footprint in the market.

ďVenturCom has long been the leading provider of embedded solutions to enhance Windows application development environments,Ē said Steve Woodard, VenturComís Senior Vice President of Global Operations. ďThis latest version of RTX helps maximize the performance of applications running on XP Pro Service Pack 2, and protects customersí hardware investments with support for hyper-threading. Windows application developers benefit from RTXís intuitive development tools with the ability to bring new, real-time-enabled software to market quickly.Ē

RTX is available immediately by contacting VenturCom directly at 781/647-3000.
