IntervalZero Inc. Key Developments

IntervalZero Releases RTX64 2014 Real-Time Software

IntervalZero released RTX64 2014, the 64-bit version of its hard real-time software, which includes a new monitoring infrastructure, improved debugging capabilities, and additional functionality that strengthen the company's product. SMP-enabled RTX64 2014 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, the Microsoft Windows operating system, and real-time Ethernet capabilities to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time. Real-time applications running on 64-bit Windows with RTX64 2014 can access 128GB of non-paged memory, depending on actual mapped physical RAM size. By comparison 32-bit Windows 7 has a non-paged memory limitation of 2GB. Overall, 64-bit Windows 512GB of physical memory dwarfs the 4GB physical memory limitation in 32-bit Windows.

Intervalzero Releases Service Pack 1 for RTX64 2013

IntervalZero has released Service Pack 1 for RTX64 2013, the 64-bit version of its hard real-time software, which reportedly provides direct access to a larger range of memory through 64-bit addressing natively in Microsoft Windows. Overall, 64-bit Windows' 512GB of physical memory dwarfs the 4GB physical memory limitation in 32-bit Windows. IntervalZero's RTX64 and RTX transform Windows into a real-time operating system (RTOS) and RTX64 can scale from 1 to 63 cores for dedicated real-time processing. For complex, connected embedded systems that seek to take advantage of Windows' world-class HMI and that also require determinism and hard-real time, RTX64 and RTX provide an RTOS that is tightly integrated with Windows. Where Windows provides timers with a maximum resolution - smallest granularity - of 1000 ìs (1 millisecond), RTX64/RTX lower this to 1 ìs where supported by the hardware. Notably, RTX64 and RTX extend the Windows operating system's capabilities - without altering or modifying the Windows Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) - to deliver determinism and hard real- time performance without relying on latency-inherent virtualization approaches or unnecessarily complicated inter-process communications schemes. RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time. Features of the RTX64 SP1 release include the addition of real-time kernel (RTK) support allowing Windows drivers to communicate with real-time applications; the addition of a control panel allows for configuration of the RTX64 subsystem; availability of Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 build support; a real-time network driver; support for Windows 8 and Windows Embedded Standard 8; and new Latency View tool. The addition of real-time kernel (RTK) support gives developers greater flexibility within their application design. Developers can choose to combine Windows processes (.EXE), Windows kernel drivers (.SYS), real-time processes (.RTSS) and real-time dynamic link libraries (.RTDLLs) to build applications that can take advantage of the full feature set of the Windows operating system. The control panel integrates seamlessly into the Windows control panel area, making RTX64 functionality searchable and configurable using standard Windows search capabilities. An application wizard is available to allow for quick real-time application creation with selectable common code templates using objects such as events or interrupts. IntervalZero has also verified that a subset of the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 C Runtime library can be used within real-time pplications, allowing developers to use standard C Runtime functionality within their Windows and real-time processes. A real-time network driver - RtIGB - supporting the Intel i210 Ethernet controllers is now available for use with the RT-TCP/IP stack. This driver expands the set of network adapters supported by default within RTX64. A new Latency View tool allows users to view and compare system timer response latencies on multiple cores at the same time.

IntervalZero Releases Service Pack 1 for RTX64 Real-Time Software

IntervalZero released Service Pack 1 for RTX64 2013, the 64-bit version of its hard real-time software, which provides the first direct access to a larger range of memory through 64-bit addressing natively in Microsoft Windows. Real-time applications running on 64-bit Windows with RTX64 can access 128GB of non-paged memory, depending on actual mapped physical RAM size. By comparison 32-bit Windows 7 has a non-paged memory limitation of 2GB. Overall, 64-bit Windows' 512GB of physical memory dwarfs the 4GB physical memory limitation in 32-bit Windows. Importantly, Windows with RTX64 will create new opportunities for developers worldwide that are designing sophisticated, intelligent systems in markets as diverse as industrial automation, digital audio and medical. IntervalZero's RTX64 and RTX transform Windows into a real-time operating system (RTOS) and RTX64 can scale from 1 to 63 cores for dedicated real-time processing.

A new Latency View tool allows users to view and compare system timer response latencies on multiple cores at the same time. Users can also add loads to stress the system to determine if it can meet their application's real-time needs. IntervalZero is a Microsoft Embedded Gold Partner and was recognized as a leading Windows Embedded Partner worldwide in 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009. IntervalZero is a member of the Intel Embedded Alliance and RTX's value in digital signal processing is featured on Intel's web site.
