SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Real-Time Innovations, Inc. today released StethoScope(R) for Linux(R), the visualization tool for monitoring and analyzing embedded and real-time applications. As the leading real-time monitoring tool in the embedded industry, StethoScope empowers developers to understand and debug complex real-time code. Now embedded software developers who want to use the Linux operating system have an off-the-shelf analysis tool to help them improve their software quality and reduce development time. Chris Conrad, principal engineer at Veraxx Engineering, said, "We use StethoScope to help us streamline our real-time software development process. It's been great for monitoring and analyzing our system as it runs. As Linux developers, we see specialized analysis tools like StethoScope as invaluable for getting the system out on time and within specification." Software developers using Linux as their platform need specialized tools that help them analyze and debug their embedded systems. Now StethoScope helps fill the gap in the current visualization tool offering for Linux. "Embedded developers face huge challenges working with systems that require small footprints, speed, reliability, and short development schedules. Proven tools like RTI's ScopeTools(TM) help," relates Stan Schneider, president and chief executive officer of RTI. "StethoScope, a long-time member of the ScopeTools suite, provides developers the insight they need to test, debug and improve their embedded applications. StethoScope analyzes data activities on production Linux code running at full speed with virtually no impact." About StethoScope for Linux StethoScope, the real-time data monitor, lets you watch any variable or memory location in your system while it runs. You can watch any set of variables, see peak values and glitches you would otherwise miss, trigger data collection on specific events, change variables from the host GUI while your program runs, and save all your data to the disk. It is built for minimal intrusion and impact on system performance. One of the original ScopeTools(TM) visualization tools, StethoScope is one of the most popular off-the-shelf tools for embedded development. StethoScope gives users the visibility needed to understand their real-time system and make it work. Availability StethoScope v5.3 for Linux is available from Real-Time Innovations, January 12, 2001. Pricing for individual seats of StethoScope for Linux starts at $995. It is free to university users through Real-Time Innovations' university program.
