Aonix and Green Hills Software recently announced the Aonix PERC Ultra Virtual Machine (VM) for Green Hills INTEGRITY to the embedded market. PERC for INTEGRITY solutions will begin with the next version of PERC Ultra 5.1. The initial port will be a Windows-hosted version of PERC targeting Power Architecture with hardware floating-point support running on the latest version of INTEGRITY. Subsequent releases will address other processors including ARM and Intel as well as added support for Aonix’s PERC Pico toolset. Aonix PERC Ultra v5.1 will be available in Q2 of 2008 for INTEGRITY on the Power Architecture.
PERC Ultra is a virtual machine and toolset created for demanding embedded and real-time systems requiring Java(tm) Standard Edition (JSE) support. PERC Ultra delivers the ease and efficiency of JSE support without sacrificing predictability, performance or real-time behavior. It offers Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) and Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation, remote debugging, deterministic garbage collection and standard graphics. The PERC product line also features PERC Pico, a virtual machine and developer toolset designed for hard real-time applications requiring fast execution, small footprint, hard real-time response, and access to low-level devices.
Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS has been adopted by device developers across a wide range of industries, including consumer, networking, medical, automotive, industrial, and avionics. Developers take advantage of INTEGRITY’s advanced separation kernel architecture to create products that perform better, have absolute security, and cost less to develop than products based on other RTOS solutions.
