Lindon, UT — Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in embedded Linux tools, real-time and high availability solutions, today announced the availability of Embedix(TM) RM, industrial shared memory software for Linux. The combination of Embedix RM with Embedix RealTime allows the design of high-speed computing or data acquisition and control based completely on Linux and low-cost standard networking hardware.
Integrating modern computing power with standard networking hardware, a powerful configuration GUI and the Linux operating system, Embedix RM supports the development and deployment of many applications such as: flight simulation, industrial control systems, high-speed data acquisition devices, other applications which employ a distributed computing environment.
“Embedix RM is a high-performance, low-cost solution for Linux that provides an easy to configure and deploy reflective memory system,” said David Beal, Lineo product manager. “This shared memory capability provides a critical component to the industrial automation, data acquisition and simulation arenas, especially when combined with the reliable performance of Linux, or for more challenging tasks, with Lineo’s high performance real-time solution.”
The process of building data sharing solutions around standard networking protocols can be laborious. Embedix RM’s GUI simplifies the build process by transparently configuring and managing memory, data, packet, network, read/write access, scheduling and redundancy. The inclusion of distributed memory capability into a developer’s application is conveniently handled by an automatically generated C header file. Interface with each memory block is accomplished via industry-standard, POSIX shared memory API. Embedix RM is also suitable for embedded applications, adding less than 60 KB to the target system.
Pricing and Availability
Embedix RM is now available as a stand-alone product and will be available in the future as an add-on module to the Embedix SDK. Embedix RM has a licensing fee of $1500, plus a per node fee of $500 each for the first two nodes and $149 for the third and subsequent nodes.
