NEXCOM International Will Distribute IntervalZero RTX & RTX64 Hard Real-Time
Software in Taiwan and China Markets
Companies are also collaborating on breakthrough motion control solutions
TAIPEI, Taiwan & WALTHAM, Mass. -- May 15, 2013
IntervalZero, Inc.,the leadingprovider of real-time operating system (RTOS)
platforms for MicrosoftWindows,today announced an agreement with global
engineering, manufacturing and services provider NEXCOM International Co.,
Ltd. to distribute IntervalZero RTX and RTX64 software in Taiwan and in China.
IntervalZero CEO Jeffrey Hibbard said the distribution agreement “extends our
strong strategic partnership with NEXCOM in the Taiwan and China markets where
we see growingdemand forpre-integratedPC-based motion controllers
thatcapitalize onboth RTX and RTX64.
"We'vemade significant investments in the region over the last three
yearsand this partnership with NEXCOM will helpus deliver a more
completemachine controlsolution that will get our customersto market more
In February 2012 IntervalZero opened an office in Taiwan that is staffed by a
team of developers and field engineers who work closely with their NEXCOM
NEXCOM and IntervalZero work jointlywithcustomers, motion and servo drive
manufacturers,and EtherCAT vendorsto build a whole solutioncomprising
NEXCOM's NISEfanless computers,Windows,andRTX/RTX64, which provide a RTOS
scheduler for Windows. This combination of technologies is the foundation of a
PC-based motion controller that will acceleratecustomers’ ability to build
and deliver cutting-edge products.
providescustomers with a roadmap that will allow them to fulfill their vision
for the next several generations of industrial machines, according to Hibbard.
He noted that tomorrow's Industrial Automation equipment will require far more
than the 4GB physical memory and the 256MB (XP) / 2GB (Windows 7) non-paged
poolmemory available today. “These memory limitations prevent machine
builders from offering valuable features such as vision systems that improve
feedbackmechanisms for breakthroughthree-dimensional roboticapplications
with six axes of coordinated motion,” Hibbard said.
Only IntervalZero's RTX64 can address the 512GB physical memory and 128GB of
non-paged pool memory required for a real time operating system (RTOS)
scheduler integrated with Microsoft Windows.
NEXCOM's General Manager of the Industrial Computing Solutions Business Unit
Joe Lin said NEXCOM sought the distribution rights for IntervalZero’s RTOS
Platform because “RTX is innovative real-time technology that fits perfectly
with our core strategy of being a reliable partner in helping our customers
construct deterministic yet cost-effective distributed type motion
"We also know thatour customers wantto have a pre-integrated solution for
their motion controller and one point of contact to support it. With RTX we
can do that and most importantlywe knowIntervalZerostands at the ready to
support us if we need it.”
