Artesyn Embedded Technologies has unveiled a software framework for its ATCA systems that claims to cut development time by 40 per cent. According to the company, the System Services Framework (SSF) is a complete system management suite for Artesyn ATCA systems that is also open to third party application. It allows users or applications to configure and monitor the hardware and software elements of a single ATCA shelf or across multiple shelves, added Artesyn.

A graphical user interface provides a quick and easy view of system configuration, events and alarms as well as providing a means of configuring switches or payload blades and managing system access. Artesyn's SSF also provides XML and command line interfaces so user applications have access to the system parameters and controls.

The SSF can be enhanced with Artesyn and 3rd party add-on software modules. For example, Artesyn's ViewCheck provides in-service and out-of-service diagnostics of ATCA blades and other system elements. Another add-in, Artesyn's FlowPilot, provides a complete packet load balancing solution.

"By using Artesyn's System Services Framework and its add-in software modules, our customers can focus on their value-add application. We estimate it can save customers up to 40 per cent time-to-market versus writing or porting their own system management software," said Jim Darroch, director of software marketing, Artesyn. "Artesyn SSF provides the tools necessary to speed the development process and brings a whole new level of ease-of-operation to ATCA systems."
