TenAsys(r) Announces Support for 2nd Generation Intel(r) Core(tm) i7 processor
With the right operating software environment, the 2nd generation Intel Core processor features can replace the need for dedicated image processing hardware
Beaverton, Oregon – January 5, 2011 – TenAsys Corporation (www.tenasys.com), a leading provider of real-time OS and embedded virtualization software, announces that it has validated three of its key products: INtime® for Windows® Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), eVM® for Windows Embedded Virtualization Manager and INtime Distributed RTOS, for use on the new 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly codenamed “Sandy Bridge”).
The new Intel Core microarchitecture is expected to deliver an unprecedented level of graphic and digital signaling performance in new medical and industrial applications. With the right operating software environment, the 2nd generation Intel Core processor features can replace the need for dedicated image processing hardware, allowing designs that may have required multiple processing subsystems in the past to be consolidated onto a single platform, reducing cost, complexity and increasing system reliability and throughput.
“TenAsys’ real-time operating system and embedded virtualization technologies have been fully aligned with Intel’s multicore strategy and their drive to support evolving usage models,” said Kim Hartman, TenAsys’ Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor’s increased graphic and processing throughput, coupled with INtime’s support for real-time determinism, enable complex data and time critical acquisition and processing in applications such as 3-D medical imaging systems.”
“The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family delivers breakthrough graphics and processing enhancements that are important to the delivery of new functionality in embedded applications like medical imaging, digital signage, and industrial automation,” said Matt Langman, director of product marketing for the Intel Embedded Computing Division. “Many of these applications are Windows-based and therefore require deterministic real-time support as well.”
TenAsys’ INtime for Windows real-time operating system runs alongside Microsoft Windows on Intel® architecture processors, providing deterministic support for real-time processes while Windows handles human-directed tasks. The company’s eVM for Windows embedded virtualization manager enables different guest operating systems to run along with Windows in the same Intel architecture system.
Real-time virtualization expert, TenAsys Corporation, specializes in operating software for the embedded computer industry, designed and optimized for the Intel x86 platforms using the Microsoft® Windows OS and the Visual Studio® development environment.
Since 1980, customers worldwide have entrusted TenAsys RTOS products to provide reliable deterministic control in a wide array of mission-critical applications including: medical, telecom, industrial control, robotics, test and measurement, and military applications.
