Micrium Unveils µC/TimeSpaceOS – Addresses Rapidly Growing Safety-Critical Market

Micrium builds on long-standing expertise with µC/OS-II use in avionics, transportation and medical industries

ESC BOSTON –September 21, 2010—Micrium, a leader in real-time operating system software and safety-critical solutions, today announced µC/TimeSpaceOS, enabling complex segments of software with a variety of safety levels to be executed on a single core. Micrium’s µC/TimeSpaceOS manages both memory and time allocated to diverse applications and enables the certification of complex systems on a more cost-effective basis than is currently possible. It also expands existing safety-critical products with non-safety critical complex middleware such as TCP-IP, File System (FS) and USB.

“Micrium’s µC/TimeSpaceOS is an elegant solution that uses a memory management unit (MMU) in a unique way,” said Jean Labrosse, founder, president and CEO of Micrium. “µC/TimeSpaceOS simplifies MMU use, taking a complex piece of hardware and requiring that only time and memory allocation be identified. Application development becomes substantially easier with its use, resulting in cost and time-to-market benefits.”

Unlike existing solutions, the µC/TimeSpaceOS is ideal for use with small microcontrollers having as little as 64KB of RAM and larger systems such as PowerPC and Cortex-A9 equipped with megabytes RAM. 

µC/TimesSpaceOS addresses such safety-critical market segments as avionics, medical, transportation, and industrial applications, providing such features and benefits as:

  • Memory protection so that applications can be executed so that multiple applications cannot influence, disturb or interact with each other
  • Runtime guarantee so that runtime performance can be anticipated at any time (deterministic) 
  • Configurable in that virtual Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) is optionally available.
  • A small footprint for use in a wide-range of applications
  • Compatibility: can be used within the protected segment in existing uC/OS-II applications.

The µC/TimeSpaceOS will be available from Micrium and its distributors and is priced at less than $30,000.
