TenAsys Brings Determinism to Windows Systems Based on the Intel(r) Atom(tm) Processor Z5xx Series

The Intel Atom processors enable a new class of smaller and more reliable fan-less solutions that can benefit from the TenAsys' embedded x86 virtualization platforms for Windows.

Nürnberg, Germany – March 3, 2009 – TenAsys Corporation (www.tenasys.com), a leading provider of real-time OS and virtualization software technology, today announces support for the Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx series with their real-time Windows virtualization solutions.

Intel's commitment to expand their long-life roadmap for the Intel Atom processor Z5xx series with industrial temperature and larger footprint options gives system developers a low-power, Windows-class processor that they can confidently use for embedded real-time Windows designs. The Intel Atom processors enable a new class of smaller and more reliable fan-less solutions that can benefit from the TenAsys’ embedded x86 virtualization platforms for Windows.

"We are thrilled with Intel’s continued advancement in and commitment to embedded processor technology," stated Kim Hartman, VP of Marketing for TenAsys, "Using our INtime and eVM products on Atom-based systems gives our customers even more options for building small, inexpensive real-time Windows platforms."

"By offering an industrial temperature range of minus 40°C to 85°C for the Intel Atom processor Z5xx series, embedded developers can now deploy low-power designs in unconstrained thermal environments," said Jonathan Luse, director of marketing, Low Power Embedded Products Division, Intel. "And, many embedded applications, such as industrial control and automation equipment, need real-time operating systems like the TenAsys INtime RTOS to produce deterministic behavior in the final system."

TenAsys was recently designated by Intel as a proven technical domain expert for the application of Intel virtualization technology to embedded platforms, including those based on the Intel® Atom™ processor Z530.
