Real-Time Systems (RTS) in Germany is working with TenAsys on an PC-based deterministic hypervisor software platform for embedded systems.
RTS Hypervisor for x86 architecture enables TenAsys’ INtime RTOS applications to run alongside a wide spectrum of different operating systems and varying workloads in hard real-time at minimum jitter, avoiding any overhead from virtualization.
The software platform allows designers to make use of the latest protocols and CPU technologies like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) or Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC). Besides enhancing system performance and reducing total system power consumption, a consolidated system solution increases flexibility in communication and enables shared use of USB, NVMe, and AHCI devices.
The INtime distributed RTOS has been paravirtualized to operate within the RTS Hypervisor. This means the hardware-assisted virtualization technology securely shields real-time applications from other operating systems. This not only greatly improves security, it also allows a general-purpose operating system to reboot while real-time applications on INtime keep running during the process.
“INtime for Windows has been one of the most popular Windows real-time environments for many years. With INtime Distributed RTOS support in our solution, even more designers around the globe can now benefit from the RTS Hypervisor, which is developing more and more into the de facto standard for industrial automation and medical applications,” said Gerd Lammers, founder of Real-Time Systems.
Oregon-based TenAsys was founded in 2000 in and provides real-time software and services based on the Intel x86 architecture and Microsoft Windows and has been used in mission-critical systems in diverse fields for decades
Real-Time Systems is a subsidiary of European board maker congatec and provides hypervisor technology specializing in real-time virtualization. The Intel co-development partner was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Ravensburg, Germany.
For qualified applicants, Real-Time Systems and TenAsys provide a pre-integrated evaluation version free of charge.
