TenAsys introduced INtime 4.0 real-time operating systems (RTOS) for Windows. INtime 4.0 enables embedded system developers to run multiple instances of the TenAsys INtime real-time operating systems alongside Windows on the same multi-core processor platform. Previously, embedded systems requiring multiple real-time OSes and Windows needed to employ multiple independent processor platforms. By consolidating operating environments into a single platform, embedded system developers can obtain significant cost savings and improved scalability of processing power.
INtime 4.0′s multiple-RTOS feature provides a key advantage over multi-tasking systems employing a single RTOS. Now developers don’t have to be burdened with the possibility of multiple, high-priority real-time processes interfering with one another. Time-critical processes can be fixed to run on their own cores of a multi-core processor, promoting modular design of real-time systems without the difficulty of resolving priorities between deterministic processes.
INtime combines deterministic, hard real-time control with standard Windows operating systems (including Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003) without requiring additional hardware. INtime was designed specifically to take advantage of the powerful capabilities of the x86 processor architecture. As a result, real-time and non-real-time applications run in separate virtual machines on a single computer, for cost-effective, reliable control that is easy to develop and maintain.
