RadiSys Rolls Out Microware OS-9 PowerPC Release at Embedded World

2/14/2006 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced the latest OS-9 PowerPC release, the first Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) solution to specifically address the needs of designers needing higher performance and lower power consumption from their PowerPC-based embedded designs.

The OS-9 PowerPC release is highly optimized for PowerPC architecture, enabling extremely fast event creation while reducing CPU power utilization by up to 70 percent. Memory Management Unit (MMU) usage is also optimized to minimize Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB) overhead while ensuring protection against application faults.

"I'm excited about the 4.5 release of Microware OS-9 for the PowerPC", said Allan Batteiger, President of Real-Time Services, Inc. "I rely on OS_9 because I need an RTOS with accuracy and response times in the tens of microseconds, which Linux canít provide."

"This most recent Microware OS-9 release reflects our ongoing commitment to provide embedded software solutions for our customers", said Scott Grout, RadiSys president and CEO. "OS-9 has proven itself in tens of thousands of applications worldwide."
