SYSGO Introduces ELinOS 4.0 Linux for Embedded Systems

9/20/2005 - SYSGO announces the launch of a new ELinOS version for October. ELinOS has been radically worked over and now fully supports the virtualisation platform PikeOS. Thus, it offers a long-term and reliable foundation for the use of Linux in embedded systems and safety-critical applications.

"Today companies use Embedded Linux for its functionality and connectivity, but still have major concerns when it comes to hard-real-time and safety critical requirements.” explains Knut Degen, CEO of SYSGO AG. “In combination with the PikeOS micro kernel, the advantages of Linux can be utilised within a safe partition while the hard real-time and safety-critical parts of the application can run in a separate partition.”

The key focus of the new ELinOS version is the comfortable handling and concise configuration of embedded systems. CODEO, the Eclipse-based development environment, provides a unified platform to develop applications for Linux and PikeOS’ real-time API’s like OSEK or POSIX within one single IDE. ELinOS v4.0 will be delivered with many Board Support Packages, created in collaboration with leading hardware vendors.

SYSGO provides software solutions for Industrial Systems and Embedded Devices. The company’s product and service offering is focussed on the so-called "system software" (also known as Firmware, Operating System, Device Drivers etc.) – one of the most important building blocks in any successful embedded project. It‘s the glue between the raw hardware and the upper application software layers. Here important decisions are made, which affect the performance, stability and costs of a product. In this area SYSGO covers everything from the basic firmware to the operating system and up to the related middleware, thus providing the foundation for successful application development. All this made SYSGO a leading company for safety-critical system software and Embedded Linux in Europe with 70 employees in 6 offices in Germany, France, Sweden and Czech Republic. Among our customers you’ll find OEMs like Siemens, DaimlerChrysler, Rockwell-Collins, Rheinmetall, EADS or Raytheon and hardware-vendors like Motorola, NEC or Kontron.
