Embedded database ITTIA DB SQL from ITTIA now supports Micrium uC/OS-II and uC/OS-III RTOS.
ITTIA DB SQL and Micrium's RTOS kernels are said to enable software to efficiently run SQL queries while continuously cataloging critical data records. ITTIA DB SQL development kits for uC/OS-II, uC/OS-III, and the uC/FS file system are available for immediate download.
"We are excited to support uC/OS-II and uC/OS-III and similar products from Micrium. Our total solution offering helps embedded developers to address mission-critical data management requirements on a powerful real-time operating system, enabling breakthrough insights that provide a competitive advantage," said Sasan Montaseri, ITTIA President and Founder.
"There is no question that with the advent of the Internet of Things, data management is an increasingly critical requirement," said Christian Légaré, EVP and CTO of Micrium. "Our uC/OS kernels are preemptive, real-time, scalable, and ideal for specialized DSP microprocessors like Blackfin. ITTIA DB SQL running on uC/OS-II and III offers customers a differentiated, high-performance embedded database capability."
ITTIA explains below points related to advantages of ITTIA DB SQL supporting Micrium uC/OS-II and III:
For embedded software development, ITTIA DB SQL and uC/OS kernels provide a solid foundation on which efficient multitasking applications can reliably store and access information. Software overhead and footprint are easy to manage when the operating system kernel, drivers, libraries, and application code are all compiled together into a single execution unit.
In addition, embedded devices typically store data on flash media. uC/FS is a portable file system library for embedded systems that can be used with or without an operating system. The storage device is accessed directly, giving the application optimized access. In a multitasking environment, tasks can share access to the file system by implementing locking functions or opening database connections. uC/FS does not rely on any other operating system features and does not require an operating system for single-task devices.
Transactional storage with ITTIA DB SQL improves persistent data storage in three key areas: reliability, scalability, and shared access. The ITTIA DB SQL database library uses transaction logging, indexed search, and locking to empower embedded applications.
