Linux will be responsible for the network integration of the next generation consumer platform. The core functions of the device will run in a second ITRON partition, safely separated from Linux. The approach makes use of the partitioning concept of PikeOS enabling the seamless migration of existing ITRON applications.
“Running ITRON and Linux on one machine is a hot topic in Japan” explains Knut Degen, CEO of SYSGO. “We see huge potential in this area and will further increase our presence together with our partner.”
PikeOS is an operating system platform based on the principle of software partitioning allowing to use more than one operating system at the same time. The foundation of PikeOS is a powerful real-time operating system, based on the latest microkernel technology. Above the microkernel, the system software implements multiple software partitions on a single CPU, with strict separation between them. Each partition can run an entire operating system such as Linux, POSIX and OSEK or application programs.
The multi-OS PikeOS was developed in Germany to the highest safety standards and is perfectly prepared for future technology advances. CODEO is the Eclipse-based development environment for PikeOS, offering additional plugins for system configuration and analysis as well as comfortable application development.
