IS2T & Green Hills Software Announce Optimized Java Support for INTEGRITY Real-Time Operating System
IS2T S.A. and Green Hills Software, Inc. have teamed up to provide IS2T’s Hard Real-Time MicroJvm® virtual machines for embedded systems integrated for use with the industry’s most reliable real-time operating system, the Green Hills safe and secure INTEGRITY® RTOS. IS2T’s Java platforms offer embedded application developers a small memory footprint, high-speed Java engine with optimized software library bundles and Hard Real-Time Java (HRTJ) capabilities.IS2
Software developers for a wide range of embedded systems can now take advantage of innovative technologies grouped in one solution to reduce product time-to-market:
• IS2T deterministic, small footprint J2ME virtual machines
• Green Hills INTEGRITY safety- and security-proven real-time operating system
• Green Hills optimizing C compilers, part of the MULTI® integrated development environment
Taking deterministic Java to the embedded market with the INTEGRITY RTOS provides the engineering community with new opportunities to prototype, design and maintain reliable and scalable electronic products. GI10, IS2T's HRTJ virtual machine from the MicroJvm product line, tightly coupled with the INTEGRITY RTOS, provides a best-in-class application platform for software requiring a high-level programming environment, combined with hard real-time, predictable timing and segregated memory spaces.
The IS2T MicroEJ Development Kit offers dedicated tools for Hard Real-Time Analysis at Java binary levels. GI10 complies with the J2ME CLDC Java standard. It leverages the native INTEGRITY message-passing API in Java to allow seamless design from application to system level, both in Java and in C. GI10's unique deterministic Java memory management frees engineers from tedious and error prone memory consumption calibration. To further complement the integration, GI10 Java HRTJ threads are native INTEGRITY Tasks, providing reliable system-level scheduling.
“We share with Green Hills their market vision, i.e. to provide fast time-to-market products, combined with the total reliability needed for a wide range of embedded products,” says Fred Rivard, CEO of IS2T. “Building a deterministic Java on top of the INTEGRITY RTOS's secure memory protection, together with its hard real-time response and guaranteed resources availability, was the obvious right choice!” continues Regis Latawiec, sales director at IS2T.
“The hard real-time design and small footprint of IS2T’s MicroJvm make embedding a Java virtual machine more practical than ever before,” says Dan Mender, vice president, business development at Green Hills Software. “By combining this solution with our INTEGRITY real-time operating system, developers can achieve their aggressive design goals without compromising on system response, security or reliability.”
