RadiSys Adds PowerPC VME SBC Support to Microware OS-9

2/14/2005 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced broadened Microware OS-9 support for several PowerPC-based, VME single-board computers (SBCs). The RadiSys Microware OS-9 for PowerPC is a complete solution designed for OEMs who are developing embedded, real-time applications for the defense, aerospace, and industrial automation markets. RadiSys has enhanced the Microware OS-9 for PowerPC solution with expanded support for the MVME2100, MVME2403/4, MVME5100, MVME5500, and MVME6100 series of VME SBCs.

“Supporting the latest PowerPC VME SBCs, RadiSys helps customers who want to implement innovative new technology, while maintaining backwards compatibility with their existing VMEbus infrastructure,” said Wade Clowes, general manager at RadiSys. “Adding this list of SBCs to those currently supported builds on the success we’ve had with our entire line of OS-9 VME products.”

OEMs upgrading to Microware OS-9 for PowerPC solution can take advantage of the latest version of the OS-9 embedded RTOS, drivers, board support packages, development tools and middleware. Enhancements include a new dual IPv6/IPv4 network stack, POSIX threads, and Borland’s CodeWright 7.5 for the Hawk IDE. Using RadiSys’ Microware OS-9, there is no need to validate the development tools with the operating system software. Instead, developers can spend their precious time designing intellectual property and features that differentiate their products.
