Ardence Unveils Latest Version of RTX

Ardence, a Citrix Company, a leader in managed control of hard real-time embedded systems, announces release 8.1 of RTX, its market-leading, real-time extension for Windows. As with previous versions, RTX remains the industry's most reliable and user-friendly high performance real-time extension for Microsoft Windows. The latest RTX version has a number of key features: Shared Multi-Processor support for Microsoft Windows Vista operating systems to complement our existing Uniprocessor and Dedicated Multi-Processor capabilities, smaller timer periods as low as 1us, and support for Message Signal Interrupt (MSI/MSI-X) capable RTX devices on all RTX supported operating systems, Windows 2000 through Vista. Ardence RTX is the only Windows-based real-time extension that offers MSI capabilities, eliminating restrictive hardware interrupt conflicts, allowing designers to utilize a broad array of PCI-compliant devices, speeding development time and enhancing design and application flexibility.

"With the introduction of Shared Multi-Processor support for Vista and our support for MSI-capable devices, we clearly are the superior solution for Windows-based, high performance real-time solutions in the embedded computing market," Said Stephen Woodard, Ardence Vice President and Product Line Executive for Embedded Products. "our highest priority is customer satisfaction, and the incorporation of these advanced features into this release demonstrates our attention to customer feedback, ensuring they have a product that meets their expectations for high performance and ease of development."

In addition, RTX 8.1 incorporates RT-TCP/IP enhancements, including RAW socket support, and Jumbo frame support. RTX kernel debugging support has also been enhanced via newly available IEEE 1394 and USB connection capabilities.

Ardence RTX 8.1 is available immediately by contacting the embedded sales department at 781.647.3000.
