SOCORRO, N.M., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- FSMLabs, (http://www.fsmlabs.com)
today announced ARINC 653 scheduling is now available in RTLinuxPro(R).
Designed for avionics control and advanced hardware-in-loop simulation,
ARINC 653 provides a fully protected and partitioned scheduling environment
configured using a standard XML format. The ARINC scheduler has been added to
FSMLabs' industry leading Process Space Development Domain (PSDD) product
which executes real-time threads in the address space of Linux or BSD
Richard Bond, in his work as Principal Real-Time Specialist for
Lockheed-Martin developed an RTLinuxPro based simulator, contributes:
"RTLinuxPro and PSDD enabled a simple simulation framework, allowed me the
choice to develop user-level I/O drivers, and provided outstanding
performance. ARINC 653 support will make this tool even more useful."
PSDD is especially well suited to large scale simulation and test
Dean Anneser, a Software Engineering Fellow at Pratt & Whitney says:
"PSDD provides a very stable cost effective scalable multi-platform
solution for our simulation, control, and data acquisition systems."
FSMLabs ARINC 653 partitions use RTCore's POSIX standard API: threads,
semaphores, shared memory and other standard interfaces. Applications may be
written in "C," C++, and FORTRAN. ADA support is planned. A single device
can run ARINC partitions alongside standard RTCore threads, Linux and Linux
applications. Multi-processor systems can run multiple ARINC "cabinets" and
may reserve processors for real-time where ultimate performance is required.
Even without reservation, FSMLabs ARINC 653 provides low microsecond hard
ARINC 653 support is an optional component for the RTLinuxPro development
kit, which provides all of the tools needed to build hard real-time
applications out of the box, including all development tools. Other options
include an Eclipse based IDE, a complete Carrier Grade Linux distribution, VME
direct drive, and real-time networking.
Availability: Immediate for x86, PPC, 64/32bit, uniprocessors,
SMP & multi-core.
