Barco, a provider of imaging technologies, has selected Green Hills Software's Integrity-178B RTOS for its new MOSArt avionics open system. Barco's MOSArt is an ARINC 653-compliant modular open system architecture for real-time avionics applications. MOSArt's open, modular approach leads to a reduced weight and power consumption, improved MTBF (mean time between failures) as well as allowing every partition to have a different criticality level (up to DO178B level A).

Greenhills' Integrity-178B is an ARINC-653-compliant, RTOS optimized for safety-critical and mission-critical applications that require the utmost security and fast, predictable response. Utilizing hardware memory protection and an advanced two-level partition scheduler, Integrity-178B provides complete time, space and resource partitioning between applications operating on the same hardware platform.

"We chose Integrity-178B from Green Hills as our first choice of RTOS for MOSArt because we strongly believe that this is the best product for building ARINC 653-based modular open-system architecture avionics subsystems," said Jean-Christophe Monfret, R&D software manager, BarcoView-Avionics.
