Customers Embrace Aonix PERC Ultra for LynxOS

PERC Ultra5.1 Supports LynuxWorks Flagship RTOS

Jul 17, 2008 - 17:16 PM


Committed to meeting the ongoing development needs of customers, Aonix and LynuxWorks continue to offer additional features and improvements. PERC Ultra 5.1 has improved performance and security capabilities. Included with the integration of the products, PERC Ultra 5.1 sets the name of each LynxOS thread to match the corresponding Java thread name for thread-aware tools, such as the LynuxWorks SpyKer Embedded System Trace tool. Such integration simplifies development and keeps projects on schedule.

“Delivering hard real-time solutions to the mil/aero market is challenging,” said Joe Wlad, Director of Certification, Marketing and Services at LynuxWorks. “Complex systems used by these customers are looking not only for the good real-time performance of LynxOS, but for complete and flexible development solutions introduced by companies such as Aonix to help them modernize their applications. Unlike other Java products, PERC Ultra can meet the real-time mission-critical requirements of our customers, reducing the overall time and cost of projects.”

“We see a shift happening in some of the largest government and military projects toward commercial-strength Java technologies,” noted Gary Cato, Aonix director of marketing. “We’re delighted to see customers specifically requesting that PERC be available for their LynxOS-targeted applications in a number of programs. Our relationship with LynuxWorks and the integration of our products is a great enabler for these customers.”

Long-standing members of the Eclipse Foundation, both companies offer fully integrated Eclipse solutions, giving developers access to the best possible industry-standard tool chain. Both PERC Ultra and the Luminosity toolset supplied for use with LynxOS are plug-and-play, giving developers a common look-and-feel across both products to simplify their development methodologies and help keep projects on schedule.

With its patented garbage collection technology, PERC Ultra 5.1 has been engineered to deliver deterministic behavior and customer-reported five nines uptime making it the solution of choice for real-time embedded systems. PERC currently boasts the largest number of deployments for any commercial real-time virtual machine, numbering in close to one million fielded systems with applications spanning market segments such as aerospace, defense, telecommunications, industrial automation, and robotics.
