DDC-I Deos RTOS Supports Freescale e300 and e500 Cores

The Deos real-time operating system and OpenArbor development tool suite are now available for the Freescale Semiconductor e300 and e500 cores. Deos running on the PowerQUICC II Pro and PowerQUICC III processors is an ideal platform for developing and hosting mil/aero and other safety-critical applications — especially those requiring high design assurance and timely DO-178B certification.

Deos’ slack scheduling and T&S partitioning capabilities enable developers to take full advantage of the performance of Freescale processors in a safety-critical environment. Development support for Deos includes DDC-I’s Eclipse-based, mixed-language OpenArbor IDE, which features C and C++ optimizing compilers, a color-coded source editor, project management support, automated build utilities, and a mixed-language, multi-window, symbolic debugger.

Deos is a robust, high performance RTOS for the safety-critical market. The memory-protected RTOS features deterministic real-time response and patented slack scheduling. Deos is a certifiable time and space (T&S) partitioned COTS RTOS built from the ground up for safety-critical applications. Deos also provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178B Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality. Compare to other safety-critical COTS RTOS, Deos results in higher CPU utilization.

The PowerQUICC II Pro family of communications processors is a next-generation extension of the PowerQUICC II processor line. Featuring scalable clock speeds up to 667 MHz, the PowerQUICC II Pro Family integrates an enhanced e300 core, DDR memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual PCI and high-speed USB controllers. PowerQUICC III processors are based on the scalable e500 SoC platform and Power Architecture processor core. Utilizing Freescale’s 90-nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) copper interconnect process technology, PowerQUICC III processors feature clock speeds of up to 1.5 GHz and offer a wide range of high-speed connectivity options, including Gigabit Ethernet, Serial RapidIO and PCI Express.
