PIC PIC24 dsPIC RTOS real time kernel
Great Western appointed as European Distributor for AVIX-RT
News Release from:
The Debug Store
27 September 2007
Great Western Microsystems Ltd has been appointed by AVIX-RT as it's European distributor for the New AVIX-RT RTOS, specifically developed for Microchip sixteen bit microcontrollers of PIC24 and dsPIC families. The AVIX RTOS is available for purchase from The Debug Store, the On-line store of Great Western Microsystems.
AVIX fully exploits the extremely powerful interrupt architecture of the PIC24 and dsPIC© microcontrollers. AVIX accomplishes this by never disabling interrupts meaning it does not increase the interrupt latency as defined by the controller’s hardware. Still communication between interrupt handling code and the main part of the application is offered and nested interrupt handling is preserved. Doing so, AVIX deserves the title “Zero Latency Interrupt RTOS”.
Also AVIX offers a mechanism called “Thread Activation Tracing”. This mechanism gives unprecedented insight in the activation of threads running under control of AVIX. Using a logic analyser, AVIX offers the possibility to ‘see’ online and real time when threads are active turning the black box of RTOS based system development white.
Of course AVIX offers all mechanisms one may expect from a professional RTOS like threads, mutexes, semaphores and so on.
As of today, AVIX is available in three different distributions so it can be fitted to the developers’ application in the most economic way.
