Objective Interface Systems Inc. (OIS) has stated that its ORBexpress supports QNX Software Systems Ltd's QNX Neutrino real-time operating system (RTOS) 6.5 that offers symmetric multiprocessing on ARM, Power, x86 and on processors with up to 32 cores, providing massive scalability for compute-intensive applications .

The QNX Neutrino is a full-featured and robust RTOS that scales down to meet the constrained resource requirements of real-time embedded systems, the company said. It also provides a field-proven strategy for migrating from single-core to multicore processing, QNX added.

According to OIS, the ORBexpress complements the multicore capabilities of the QNX Neutrino. The communications software fully supports multithreading for achieving concurrency by efficiently using shared resources. Using ORBexpress and the QNX Neutrino RTOS, developers can add multiple cores for increased performance without having to rewrite their applications, OIS added. Additionally, they are believed to be beneficial in markets such as SDR, medical and automotive where performance, reliability and code quality are critical.
