DDC-I has announced enhanced scalability for Deos, its DO-178C-certifiable safety-critical RTOS solution targeting Pentium processors. From the low-power embedded Intel Atom to the high-performance Intel Core I7, the Deos real-time operating system provides an ideal platform for Pentium processors targeting safety-critical avionics applications.
“Pentium processors run the gamut, from compact low-power embedded processors, to high-performance, multi-core mobile processors, all sharing a common architecture that maximizes compatibility across its platforms,”, said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing and product management at DDC-I. “Deos scales across the entire Pentium family, providing a common RTOS platform that enables avionics designers to leverage advanced features like slack scheduling and memory partitioning that meet the most demanding performance and safety-critical requirements.”
Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that has been certified to DO-178 DAL A since 1998. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the time and space partitioned RTOS employs patented 'slack scheduling' and cache partitioning to deliver faster worst-case response and higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOS. Deos was built from the ground up for safety-critical applications, and is the only certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178, Level A processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178 Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
