Replace FPGAs & DSPs and Transform Windows Into a Real-Time OS with IntervalZero RTX64
The foundation of the KINGSTAR platform, IntervalZero’s RTX64 software replaces FPGAs and DSPs by transforming Windows into a real-time OS (RTOS), reducing development costs and significantly improving the quality of embedded systems.
Scale Up To 64 Core Systems for Dedicated Real-Time Application Processing
Extend the Windows OS capabilities without altering or modifying Windows to deliver determinism and real-time performance. IntervalZero RTX64 RTOS enables real-time application processing without relying on virtualization approaches, which introduce latency when accessing hardware or complicated inter-process communications schemes.
Replace Costly and Proprietary FPGAs and DSPs at Half the Cost and Time
RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform, the foundation of KINGSTAR. It comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time EtherCAT software to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and dramatically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
- Reduce the product cost of the compute platform by 25 – 50%
- Lower the operational costs of producing and supporting product by 10 – 20%
- Shorten the cycle time of getting new generations of products to market
- Increase market share by opening new, previously unreachable markets
