Parallel processing software shortens simulation run-times

Parallel processing software, claimed to speed up the development of beam particles, has been released by Cobham Technical Services. The 3D Space Charge module is an addition to the company's Opera-3d suite of electromagnetic and multi-physics design tools, which use finite element (FE) analysis to compute the physical interaction of charged particles with electrostatic or magnetostatic fields.

Scalability of RTOS enhanced through visualisation profile

A visualisation profile for the next generation of its RTOS, has been introduced by Wind River. The Virtualization Profile integrates a real-time embedded, Type 1 hypervisor into the core of the the VxWorks 7 Core Platform, separating its OS from packages such as the file system or networking stack. This allows individual applications to be updated without requiring a rework of the entire system, increasing the RTOS's scalability and ability to quickly adjust to market changes.
