Meets Mission-Critical Data Management Needs
July 28, 2015 — Bellevue, WA — ITTIA announces support for Micrium µC/OS-II® and µC/OS-III® real-time operating systems (RTOSes) in its flagship embedded database product, ITTIA DB SQL. Micrium operating systems run on a large number of processor architectures, including Blackfin DSPs from Analog Devices and ARM Cortex microcontrollers from Freescale, that accelerate data acquisition with integrated vision, voice, sensor, and packet processing hardware. ITTIA DB SQL and Micrium's RTOS kernels enable software to efficiently run SQL queries while continuously cataloging critical data records. ITTIA DB SQL development kits for µC/OS-II, µC/OS-III, and the µC/FS file system are available for immediate download.
"We are excited to support µC/OS-II and µC/OS-III and similar products from Micrium. Our total solution offering helps embedded developers to address mission-critical data management requirements on a powerful real-time operating system, enabling breakthrough insights that provide a competitive advantage," said Sasan Montaseri, ITTIA President and Founder.
"There is no question that with the advent of the Internet of Things, data management is an increasingly critical requirement," said Christian Légaré, EVP and CTO of Micrium. "Our µC/OS kernels are preemptive, real-time, scalable, and ideal for specialized DSP microprocessors like Blackfin. ITTIA DB SQL running on µC/OS-II and III offers customers a differentiated, high-performance embedded database capability."
For embedded software development, ITTIA DB SQL and µC/OS kernels provide a solid foundation on which efficient multitasking applications can reliably store and access information. Software overhead and footprint are easy to manage when the operating system kernel, drivers, libraries, and application code are all compiled together into a single execution unit.
In addition, embedded devices typically store data on flash media. µC/FS is a portable file system library for embedded systems that can be used with or without an operating system. The storage device is accessed directly, giving the application optimized access. In a multitasking environment, tasks can share access to the file system by implementing locking functions or opening database connections. µC/FS does not rely on any other operating system features and does not require an operating system for single-task devices.
Transactional storage with ITTIA DB SQL improves persistent data storage in three key areas: reliability, scalability, and shared access. The ITTIA DB SQL database library uses transaction logging, indexed search, and locking to empower embedded applications.
