Aonix ObjectAda Full Standard Ada Runtime Executes atop VxWorks 6.6
Feb 04, 2009 - 10:40 AM
ObjectAda for VxWorks leverages Wind River Workbench, an Eclipse-based development environment providing developers access to the broad range of tools available through the Eclipse framework. With support for multiple operating systems, architectures and programming languages, ObjectAda for VxWorks provides the flexibility to standardize on a single development framework. Users also have the option to utilize ObjectAda’s standard graphical or command-line interface. The ObjectAda compilation system is comprised of an integrated language-sensitive editor, source-code browser, compiler with industry-leading compilation speed, debugger and full library manager.
Embedded systems development often begins without target hardware in hand. In the absence of a PowerPC execution platform, VxSim, a target simulation facility supplied in the VxWorks distribution, can perform initial application execution and testing direct from the Intel/Windows host development platform. This is especially cost-efficient when multiple developers vie for access to expensive and scarce target hardware testing cycles.
“Ada development is a strong aerospace and defense requirement,” said Rob Hoffman, vice president and general manager for Aerospace and Defense at Wind River. “Continued support and development of systems can often span decades and we’re pleased to have up-to-date and well-integrated solutions for our customers.”
“Demand for Ada products has remained remarkably strong, even in the face of current economic uncertainty,” commented Gary Cato, Aonix director of marketing. “Our traditional customers are looking for ways to modernize or upgrade their applications in cost-effective ways. The new release of ObjectAda Real-Time for VxWorks 6.6 provides a great vehicle to achieve these objectives. ”
