NEXCOM International Will Distribute IntervalZero RTX & RTX64 Hard Real-Time Software in Taiwan and China Markets



  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 leading provider of real-time operating system (RTOS)
platforms for Microsoft Windows, 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 growing demand for pre-integrated PC-based motion controllers
that capitalize on both RTX and RTX64.

"We've made significant investments in the region over the last three
years and this partnership with NEXCOM will help us deliver a more
complete machine control solution that will get our customers to market more
quickly.”

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
colleagues.

NEXCOM and IntervalZero work jointly with customers, motion and servo drive
manufacturers, and EtherCAT vendors to build a whole solution comprising
NEXCOM's NISE fanless computers, Windows, and RTX/RTX64, which provide a RTOS
scheduler for Windows. This combination of technologies is the foundation of a
PC-based motion controller that will accelerate customers’ ability to build
and deliver cutting-edge products.

Uniquely, IntervalZero’s most recent product release, RTX64,
provides customers 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
pool memory available today. “These memory limitations prevent machine
builders from offering valuable features such as vision systems that improve
feedback mechanisms for breakthrough three-dimensional robotic applications
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
controllers.

"We also know that our customers want to 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 importantly we know IntervalZero stands at the ready to
support us if we need it.”
