I-Logix and Green Hills Software team to provide development tools

London, United Kingdom - I-Logix Inc. announced May 15 the integration of its Rhapsody application development platform with Green Hills Software's Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS). The integration of Rhapsody, available with the latest Rhapsody in C++ release, provides a development environment specifically targeted for that RTOS.


London, United Kingdom - Embedded Systems Show - I-Logix Inc. announced May 15 the integration of its Rhapsody application development platform with Green Hills Software 's Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS). The integration of Rhapsody, available with the latest Rhapsody in C++ release, provides a development environment specifically targeted for that RTOS.

Real-time embedded software developers are now able to generate code that will create Integrity-enabled applications by utilizing an Integrity operating system adapter. The adapter is an operating system abstraction providing the enabling services of the operating system to the application generated by Rhapsody. Real-time embedded developers are now free to develop applications within the Rhapsody visual programming environment using standard Unified Modeling Language- (UML) based notation. This environment provides the ability to analyze, design, document, and generate production quality code. This code may then be compiled and built with Multi, Green Hills Software's IDE, and then used with Integrity to deliver mission- and safety-critical applications without sacrificing real-time performance, security, and protection. Rhapsody supplies the user with both the RTOS adapter as well as the source for the adapter, allowing the user greater options for customization.

"Providing developers of real-time embedded systems with an integrated tool chain, from concept to code, allows the developer to focus their efforts on product functionality. INTEGRITY, in combination with Rhapsody, allows mutual customers to spend more time developing their safety critical application without the worry of RTOS integration," said Neeraj Chandra, senior vice president of Marketing and Corporate Development, I-Logix Inc. "Developers will now be able to design more complex systems in less cycles with greater accuracy, resulting in higher productivity and significant cost savings."

Rhapsody is a visual application development platform designed to meet the challenges of real-time embedded system and software development. It allows real-time embedded system and software engineers to analyze, design, implement, and test UML-based applications graphically. Production-quality code is automatically generated as the design evolves and graphical animation allows design diagrams on the development host to be debugged before testing the software on the target. This capability enables reuse at the design level and compresses the overall development cycle.

A complete list of Rhapsody RTOS adapters may be viewed on the I-Logix web site at www.ilogix.com/products/rhapsody/partners.cfm .
