VenturCom Introduces RTX 6.0 for Embedded Developers

4/5/2004 - VenturCom, Inc., announced the release of version 6.0 of RTX, its market-leading real-time extensions for Windows and application software development tool suite. The new features and functionality introduced include capabilities to enhance development of embedded systems through:

“RTX 6.0 provides new functionality and increased performance to our existing customers and enables a larger number of products to benefit from the real-time performance RTX brings to Windows-based embedded products,” said Stephen M. Woodard, Senior Vice President, Global Operations. APIC interrupt controller mode enables better overall system configuration management and more reliable performance. RTX 6.0 supports the APIC HAL in uni-processor and multi-processor configurations resulting in several benefits, including elimination of clock drift and reduction of bus bandwidth utilization, which will provide approximately a 20% improvement in both RTX and application performance.

USB permits fast hookup of devices and peripherals to both personal computers and embedded devices. The addition of the RTX USB 1.0 SDK, with support for both USB 1.1/2.0, greatly expands the ability of RTX to address a larger set of embedded system requirements. The RTX USB SDK provides support for both host and client functionality. Developers can develop custom USB device drivers using the RTX SDK.

With the addition of deterministic memory allocation, RTX 6.0 enables deterministic allocation/de-allocation of memory from a pre-allocated memory pool managed by the main RTX sub-system. This new feature increases determinism in memory allocation for RTX applications and offers the RTX developer greater flexibility to determine system status in case of a Windows failure.
