Percepio Announces a Cooperation with KINGSTAR for RTX64

POSTED 03/22/2016

Västerås, Sweden - Percepio AB, the Swedish developer of RTOS visualization tools, today announced a cooperation with KINGSTAR, makers of RTX64, the leading Windows-based real time operating system. A new Tracealyzer version for KINGSTAR RTX64 will be bundled with the RTX64 SDK and provided free of charge for KINGSTAR customers, including the full suite of Percepio Tracealyzer visualizations and analyses.

According to Percepio founder, and CEO Dr. Johan Kraft, “KINGSTAR’s customers develop advanced embedded and IoT systems, often with strict real-time requirements, multi-threading and multi-core designs. With Tracealyzer they will gain unprecedented insight in the runtime behavior, reducing time-to-market and increasing software quality.”

“The IoT future demands a platform approach for industrial automation to handle the exponential sharing of data in the cloud performing real-time deterministic functions and gaining insight into their performance. RTX64 along with Percepio’s Tracealyzer for RTX64 is the most robust Windows RTOS platform with best-in-class visualization for IoT to deliver on that promise”, said Dipesh Mukerji VP Marketing and Strategy at KINGSTAR.

Percepio’s market-leading visualization offers 25+ views, which are cleverly interconnected to allow viewing the trace from multiple perspectives, including CPU usage, memory allocation, task synchronization and communication, in parallel with custom application logging.

KINGSTAR’s combines more than three decades of embedded software innovation and the proven value of KINGSTAR’s RTX and RTX64 hard real-time software, have enabled the company to build a global customer base of market-leading OEMs and end users in Industrial Automation, Medical Systems, Digital Media, Test & Measurement, Military & Aerospace, and other industries. KINGSTAR seeks to provide the world’s leading RTPS platform based on its SMP-enabled RTX and RTX64 software, which is used for developing complex hard real-time systems that require a sophisticated user experience and that run on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware.
