TenAsys Corporation, a provider of real-time OS and virtualization software, has announced that all of its embedded virtualization software products, including the INtime real-time OS for Windows, provide full support for new 2010 Intel Core processors and companion chipsets for the embedded market.
The TenAsys INtime RTOS works alongside Windows to provide fully deterministic processing of real-time tasks, completely independent of Windows task scheduling. On multicore processors such as the new dual-core Intel Core processors, INtime can run on its own core(s) to maximize performance in running real-time tasks.
"The enhanced performance and determinism capabilities of the multicore architecture, the new highly integrated chipset functionality, and built-in Intel Virtualization Technology (including both processor-based and chipset-based hardware virtualization support) make the new components exceptional candidates for real-time and embedded virtualization platforms," said Kim Hartman, TenAsys Vice President of Marketing and Sales.
Intel's newest multicore embedded processors include the Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 processors, which feature intelligent performance, power efficiency, integrated graphics, and error correcting code (ECC) memory, while maintaining software compatibility with previous x86 architecture processors.
When paired with the Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset, the new integrated two-chip platforms provide excellent graphics, memory and I/O bandwidth, as well as remote management capabilities and reliability to meet the requirements of a broad range of embedded applications — including retail and transaction solutions, gaming platforms and industrial automation equipment.
