64-bit memory use for embedded RTOS

Tenasys (Germany) introduces 64-bit extended memory for its real-time operating system platform Intime. The operating system can be used with RT-Lua, which integrates several CAN interfaces with CANopen.

Tenasys extends its advanced consolidation solutions for multicore PCs with full access to available system memory and programming language support. Version 6.2 of the Intime real-time operating system enables memory extension technology providing each process access to 4 GiB of physical memory, regardless of the number of processes and cores used on any given system. Making use of the flexibility of Intel Architecture, the 32-bit real-time operating system now uses a 64-bit memory architecture underneath. This benefits any application which requires large memory access, without forcing unnecessary porting of applications to a 64-bit architecture. Existing Intime applications run without modification or rebuilding, each with abundance of physical memory.

Included in this update is ISO certified C++11 support. Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 is all that is required for Intime developers to incorporate libraries and services of the update to C++ since TR1 in 2003. New libraries, classes, and algorithms are enabled in the real-time operating system. This eases coding effort, cutting time to market, while improving code safety, says the company. At the SPS IPC Drives 2016 show in Nuremberg, Germany, the company’s business partner Profimatics will demonstrate how Intime based RT-Lua integrates several CAN interfaces with CANopen.

Exhibiting at the fair from November 22 to 24 (hall 7, booth 595), Tenasys, co-exhibitor ISG, and other selected partners and customers demonstrate a range of technologies and applications, special to this marketplace. This includes, but is not limited to, robotic motion systems, various real-time Ethernet protocols including Sercos, Profinet and Ethercat, all enabled by the Tenasys Software Platform.
