PERC Ultra supports PikeOS

Aonix has released PERC Ultra 5.1 cross development and target support on Sysgo's PikeOS 2.2 real-time operating system. Aonix says that PERC Ultra support of the PikeOS POSIX PSE52 profile provides a solution for the increasing need for portability across multiple operating systems as industries such as military and aerospace, transportation, telecommunications, automotive and industrial automation face the challenge of maintaining legacy systems. Aonix claims that the deterministic behaviour and real-time performance of PERC Ultra meets the stringent requirements of these applications and enables developers to apply Java's portability to their modernising efforts.

Because of the POSIX interface, the PERC Ultra-PikeOS solution is particularly attractive for applications requiring scalability and portability, says Aonix. The POSIX PSE52 profile adds asynchronous IO and socket communications—features that Java programmers need to design effective Standard Edition Java embedded and real-time applications.

Aonix and Sysgo also provide maximum flexibility to developers with Eclipse plug-ins in both PERC Ultra and PikeOS, claims Aonix. With the large-scale, complex applications common in safety-critical space, applications often involve diverse design, development and test tools. Aonix says that the Eclipse environment provides a common framework and development platform, reducing the learning curve and offering developers the widest variety of tools possible.

Aonix says that efforts to integrate a multi-partitioned solution are well underway. Chosen to participate in DIANA, a European Community project chartered to modernise the tools and execution environments used in hard real-time and safety-certifiable avionics systems, Aonix and Sysgo are already working towards extending the portable operating system interface to meet the ARINC-653 standard, a multi-partition execution environment. The DIANA project will develop architecture, methodologies and concepts that reduce aircraft development and operating costs, enable faster upgrade and replacement of avionics applications, and reduce onboard weight through better use of computational resources. The DIANA project has chosen PERC Ultra, PERC Pico and PikeOS as essential components to the modular electronics platform under development.

PERC development tools are available at no charge in combination with a maintenance contract. Target execution and deployment licence pricing starts at Rs.10.71 lakh ($25,000) based on projected volume. PERC Ultra is also available with special bundling discounts when licensed with PERC Pico.
