SYSGO offers improved multi-core support with new PikeOS 3.4 release
The new 3.4 release of PikeOS expands the scope of this SSV (Safe and Secure Virtualization) based RTOS and hypervisor product to new hardware platforms, enhanced "Personalities", and new functionality across existing features. The 3.4 release is also the baseline for a new safety-critical certified version of PikeOS.
The most significant new items in this release include:
- IOMMU support
- Improved SMP performance and functionality
- Foundation for new IEC 61508 and EN 50128 SIL 4 certification for
PikeOS Native API
x86 processor architecture
SMP execution model
- New version of IDE, CODEO 5.0
Much quicker installation process
Improved backward compatibility: supports multiple versions of the same product in the same session
New eclipse version
- New or improved support of hardware platforms such as
Freescale's QorIQ processors (P2041, P4080)
ARM TrustZone® (Freescale i.MX6, Xilinx Zynq-7000)
Intel® Core(TM) i7 2655LE (Kontron VX3035)
"PikeOS continues to lead the pack of RTOS and hypervisors suppliers", said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing of SYSGO. "More and more market segments are adopting the concept of safe and secure embedded virtualization, introduced by SYSGO with PikeOS in 2005. The 3.4 release is a new step in providing a certifiable solution that can be used by many customers for many different projects."
The PikeOS 3.4 release will be available in September 2013.
PikeOS is both an RTOS (Real-Time Operating System) and a hypervisor built upon the Safe and Secure Virtualization (SSV) technology that enables multiple operating system interfaces, called Personalities, to work safely and securely on separate sets of resources within a single machine. PikeOS has the largest range of supported Personalities of the market, including PikeOS Native, ARINC 653, Linux, POSIX, Certified POSIX, Android(TM) , RTEMS, AUTOSAR, iTRON and others.
The PikeOS microkernel architecture allows it to be used in cost sensitive, resource constrained devices as well as large, complex systems. The simplicity and compactness of the PikeOS design results in real-time performance that competes head-to-head with conventional proprietary RTOS solutions. PikeOS supports single- and multi-core processor architectures. Support of multi-core offers a flexible approach to the user who can select an execution model ranging from a pure AMP (Asymmetric Multi Processing) to full SMP (Symmetric Multi Processing).
PikeOS is certifiable to safety standards like DO-178B/C, IEC 61508, EN 50128, IEC 62304 or ISO 26262, is MILS compliant, and is currently involved in various security standard Common Criteria EAL certification projects.
SYSGO provides OS products and software services for the real-time and embedded market. A differentiating capability is the SSV (Safe and Secure Virtualization) platform PikeOS, a paravirtualization RTOS that is built upon a small, fast, and certified microkernel. It supports the co-existence of independent OS personalities on a single platform, including ELinOS, SYSGO's embedded Linux distribution. PikeOS is certifiable to safety standards like DO-178B/C, IEC 61508, EN 50128, IEC 62304 or ISO 26262, is MILS compliant, and is currently involved in security CC EAL certification projects. SYSGO supports international customers with services for embedded Linux, real-time capabilities and certification for safety-critical applications. Markets include Aerospace & Defense, Industrial, Automotive, Railway, Medical, Smart Energy, and Security. Customers include Airbus, EADS, Thales, B. Braun, Raytheon, Samsung, Rheinmetall, Rockwell-Collins, Nokia Siemens Network, Miele and Rohde & Schwarz.
