DDC-I Deos Safety-Critical RTOS Supports Intel Atom Embedded Processor

DDC-I’s Deos safety-critical real-time operating system and OpenArbor software development tools now provide architecture support for Intel’s Atom embedded processor. Deos and OpenArbor accelerate the development, deployment, and DO-178B certification of safety-critical avionics applications targeting Atom-based systems. The Atom processor’s low power consumption and high performance make it ideal for safety-critical avionics applications.

The Deos real-time operating system and OpenArbor IDE, provide a turnkey development and run-time solution for safety-critical developers targeting the Atom processor. Deos provides a fast and low risk path to DO-178B certification of any COTS RTOS, and flies on more commercial and military aircraft than any other COTS RTOS.

Deos is a robust and high performing real-time operating system for the safety-critical market. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the memory-protected RTOS employs patented slack scheduling to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other safety-critical commercial off the shelf (COTS) RTOS. Deos is the only certifiable time and space (T&S) partitioned COTS RTOS built from the ground up for safety-critical applications.

Development support for the Atom processor and Deos RTOS includes DDC-I’s Eclipse-based OpenArbor integrated development environment (IDE). Featuring C and C++ optimizing compilers, OpenArbor provides a color-coded source editor, project management support, automated build/make utilities, and a multi-window symbolic debugger. The debugger recognizes C and C++ expressions and can view objects, expressions, call chains, execution traces, interspersed machine code, machine registers, and program stacks. The debugger is non intrusive, can debug at the source or machine level, and can be enabled without changing the generated code.
