The High-Performance Combination of RTI Connext DDS and eSOL RTOS will
Streamline System Development for Multicore Applications
TOKYO, Japan, August 31, 2021
, a global developer of real-time embedded software solutions, and Real-Time Innovations (RTI)
, the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, today announced their partnership to support high-performance, secure embedded applications for automotive and industrial applications running on multicore systems.
RTI and eSOL are both pioneers in their respective fields– with RTI having developed the foundations of the Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) connectivity standard, and eSOL being the first commercial RTOS vendor with multicore support for the first chip with an Arm multicore CPU. Through the partnership, RTI Connext® DDS
is now fully integrated with eSOL eMCOS®
, the ultra-scalable Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) platform. This allows eMCOS developers to take advantage of various benefits when developing distributed real-time systems while leveraging open standards and high-performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology.
Both RTI and eSOL enable real-time applications based on a modern architecture design in the embedded sector. The Connext DDS data-centric connectivity framework combined with the eMCOS multikernel architecture, provides the lowest multicore latencies for an RTOS on multicore hardware. Together, these technologies provide the highest levels of efficiency and security for developers of complex multicore systems, such as autonomous vehicles or industrial robots.
"To meet the huge challenges of embedded systems in terms of efficiency and security, we cannot rely on proprietary solutions," said Bob N. Ueyama, Executive Vice President of eSOL. "We need to develop and use open standards to jointly tackle future development problems."
"We are pleased to work with eSOL to enable next-generation applications for the industrial and automotive markets," said Kelvin Hor, Regional Manager, RTI. "Our mutual commitment to open standards and high-performance technology provides developers with proven, low-latency software without the need for custom code."
Founded in 1975 and listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE: 4420), eSOL is a leading global company in the fields of embedded systems and edge computing that seeks to contribute to a safer and better-connected society. eSOL's high-performance and scalable software platform products and first-class professional services, centered around its unique and patented eMCOS multikernel real-time operating system (RTOS) technology, are used worldwide in demanding embedded application fields which conform to stringent quality, safety and security standards.
