Eonic Systems' Virtuoso(tm) 4.1 now shipping!
Virtuoso(tm), the renowned Real Time Software Development Tool for DSP and ASIC cores brings DSP developers the same level of comfort that was previously only available to the traditional embedded market!
Eonic Systems has started shipping Virtuoso 4.1 for ADI, Analog Devices, 2106x (Sharc). This breakthrough RTOS cuts down the development-time by up to 50% without any compromise whatsoever regarding performance and code-size. In addition, it also guarantees DSP developers the same comfort and the same functionality that until now were only available for the traditional embedded market.
However, Virtuoso RTOS is more than an RTOS. While the real kernel is only 10 K, the CD it comes on boasts over 350 Mbytes of files. Including a vast collection of Board Support Packages for COTS support, comprehensive documentation and on-line help, and of course all the necessary tools to aid developers in their creative efforts. New in Virtuoso 4.1 are a GUI Task Level Debugger and Tracing Monitor, replacing previous text-based versions, and operating on a multi-processor target.
Virtuoso's main difference lies in the combination of high-level tools with the best possible performance and the smallest possible code-size, both of which are crucial factors to the DSP developer. At the heart of this revolutionary Integrated Development Environment lies Eonic Systems' SoftStealth technology. SoftStealth automatically generates an application-specific real-time kernel with a minimum memory footprint, allowing the developer to fully concentrate on his application while all low-level issues are handled within the RTOS itself.
Another important Virtuoso asset is the VSP (Virtual Single Processor Model), enabling the programmer of a multi-processor system to write his application as if he were writing it for a single processor system. With the ever-decreasing time-to-market, DSP developers will welcome the efficient and fast way Virtuoso allows them to concentrate entirely on their work without having to worry about the low-level issues.
Virtuoso v4.1 comes with support for the ADI 2106x Sharc processor. The space dedicated version supporting the radiation hardened ADI21020 is expected to ship end July 99. Virtuoso v4.1 now features support for the ADI toolset Rev3.3 and Visual DSP. To check whether your board is already Visual DSP compliant please contact your board manufacturer. Virtuoso is available for the leading DSP suppliers such as Analog Devices and Texas Instruments.
