SYSGO releases ELinOS Real-Time: An Industrial Grade hard real-time Linux solution for the embedded industry

SYSGO, a European vendor of reliable device software, announced the release of ELinOS Real-Time, an Industrial Grade hard real-time Linux solution that combines the feature richness of Embedded Linux with the safety and hard real-time capabilities of SYSGO's PikeOS. The product is another milestone in SYSGO's long-term strategy to provide off the shelf products for the embedded industry. ELinOS Real-Time is built on SYSGO's separation microkernel-based real-time operating system for safety and mission critical systems, PikeOS. It offers a PSE51 POSIX profile (single process, multi-threaded) and allows Linux to interfere with the execution of a real-time application. The product extends the graphical ELinOS configuration editor ELK to handle all related real-time parameters and guides customers to start immediately without any additional knowledge. CODEO, SYSGO's integrated development environment, already incorporates COGNITO, the embedded target analyzer tool, which enables customers to analyze their Embedded Linux and POSIX application's timing behavior and take a close look to the target resource information. SYSGO provides various extensions for ELinOS Real-Time including POSIX IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack, real-time Java or Ada runtime environment and even a VxWorks library. The company's customers include DaimlerChrysler, EADS Airbus, EADS Military Air Systems, Honeywell, IBM, Raytheon, Rheinmetall, Rockwell-Collins as well as Rohde & Schwarz.
