BOSTON, Embedded Systems Conference, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- FSMLabs,
(http://www.fsmlabs.com) a mission-critical software development company,
today announced breakthrough single digit microsecond timing on 64-bit dual
core AMD Opteron processors and immediate availability of RTLinuxPro, Carrier
Grade RTLinux, RTCore and Eclipse-based development tools for a wide range of
AMD processors. FSMLabs will showcase these technologies at ESC Boston in the
AMD exhibit. RTLinux for AMD CPUs meets the hard real-time needs for high
performance communications, dedicated networking and security systems,
instrumentation and control, simulation, imaging, and other demanding embedded
FSMLabs solutions help device manufacturers build and deploy applications
for AMD processors with both hard real-time responsiveness and standards-based
open APIs and architectures. RTLinux and RTCore enable developers to leverage
the performance of an embedded real-time operating system (RTOS) with the
interoperability and flexibility of Linux and BSD platforms. For
communications equipment manufacturers (TEMs and NEPs) building converged
voice and data applications, Carrier Grade RTLinux adds the
standards-compliance, availability, serviceability, and security specified in
the OSDL 2.0 CGL Requirements Specification.
"FSMLabs gives high-end embedded designers real-time operating systems and
development tools that can help quickly deploy a full-featured, AMD64
processor-based embedded systems," said David Rich, director of 64-bit
Embedded Markets at AMD. "Customers using the combination of FSMLabs'
features and functionality with the industry-leading performance of AMD64
processors should experience low latency, high performance and reliability
with their systems."
Performance Edge - Hard Real-time
"AMD processors offer great price/performance, but most embedded OSes and
tools can't take advantage of core AMD CPU capabilities," comments Victor
Yodaiken, president and CEO of FSMLabs. "FSMLabs customers today build and
deploy applications with hard real-time performance on AMD 64 bit dual-core
Opterons. They also create products ranging from s/w radios and automobile
diagnostics built on AMD Alchemy CPUs to VoIP gateways running on
AMD Geode/Elan processors."
On an AMD Opteron 265 dual core system, RTLinux guarantees interrupt
latencies of no more than 5 microseconds with scheduling jitter of no more
than 8 microseconds even with Linux under heavy load. These industry-leading
times can be further reduced with FSMLabs timer advance and processor
reservation technologies (with processor reservation scheduling jitter is
limited to under 2 microseconds). While real-time Linux is something some
vendors promise every year, FSMLabs has been delivering production hard
real-time Linux for nine years and offers tested, proven, solutions that run
on everything from the latest high end multiprocessors to low power and low
cost processors for deeply embedded systems.
