64-bit memory architecture for real-time operating system

21st November 2016

Consolidation solutions for multicore PCs from TenAsys have been extended 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 4GB 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 INtime 32-bit real-time operating system now uses a 64-bit memory architecture underneath. This benefits any applications which require 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 cutting edge libraries and services of the most significant update to C++ since TR1 in 2003. Libraries, classes and algorithms are the basis for a range of portable software across the industry and are now readily enabled in the INtime real-time operating system. This eases coding effort, cutting time to market, while improving code safety.

These two enhancements of the INtime real-time operating system are the latest demonstration of TenAsys’ commitment to preserving and extending customers’ valued intellectual property. 

Exhibiting at the SPS IPC Drives 2016 show, TenAsys, co-exhibitor ISG, and other selected partners and customers are demonstrating a range of technologies and applications, special to this demanding marketplace. This includes, but not limited to, robotic motion systems, various real-time Ethernet protocols including Sercos, Profinet and EtherCAT, all enabled by the TenAsys Software Platform.

Visit them at booth 7-595 at the Nuremberg Messe during the SPS IPC Drives 2016 show 22nd to 24th November 2016 to experience the breadth of offerings of the TenAsys Software Platform featuring the INtime real-time operating system.
