eSOL and Kalray Expand Collaboration to Meet the High Demands of the Industry, Automotive and Medical Industries.

Friday, Jul 12, 2019

Kalray, a pioneer in the field of processors for new intelligent systems, and eSOL, a leading developer of real-time embedded software Solutions today announce the availability of the eMCOS POSIX 1 Real Time Operating System (RTOS) from eSOL on the MPPA® intelligent processor from Kalray. This is to meet the increasing and high standards of performance and safety in the markets for vehicles, industry and medicine. The support extends the already existing eMCOS core profile, which has already been available on the MPPA architecture for several years.

eSOL is considered a key player in embedded markets such as vehicles, in particular thanks to its contribution to AUTOSAR ("AUTomotive Open System Architecture"), the worldwide development partnership for vehicle market participants. Such a partnership will allow the use of a wide range of applications on the Kalray MPPA® processor, including advanced control frameworks such as the Robot Operating System for robotic control, Autoware for autonomous driving and other embedded software frameworks. In addition, eSOL has a strong presence and extensive experience in medical and industrial markets.

"Massive system consolidation, particularly in the automotive sector, is now becoming a realistic architectural option, with Kalray's current and next intelligent processors providing impressive performance," said Masaki Gondo, CTO of eSOL . "ESOL and Kalray will continue this successful collaboration to provide relevant, streamlined and integrated solutions that meet the ever-increasing demands of our mutual customers for performance and security."

"Disruptive technology, such as Kalray's MPPA, requires a development environment such as eSOL's eMCOS to provide customers with smooth adoption of a broad and growing range of applications. eMCOS POSIX provides a fully functional RTOS that ensures compatibility with POSIX for OEMs and the ability to run multiple applications in parallel, "said Stéphane Cordova, vice president of embedded business unit at Kalray . "The combination of eMCOS with the powerful MPPA® processors gives customers a unique solution for a quick start."

The use of MPPA® in industries such as vehicle manufacturing is facilitated by development environments that promote acceptance among customers such as OEMs and Tier 1 companies. This can be seen in the eSOL POSIX multiprocessing RTOS, which provides the ability to define complex systems such as autonomous vehicles.

These rich operating systems and middleware take full advantage of Kalray's MPPA architecture and provide a consistent environment for customers who transition from 2nd generation MPPA® Bostan to the 3rd generation Coolidge and want to continue using similar tools when developing applications.

ESOL's unique distributed microkernel architecture allows for the optimal use of multi-core processors such as Kalray's MPPA®. While eMCOS Core provides a PSE51 single-context POSIX API for parallel high-performance computing, eMCOS POSIX adds support for PSE53 multiprocessing POSIX to allow advanced software integration where more storage space is available.

The collaboration between eSOL and Kalray also extends to the provision of AUTOSAR-compliant software platforms, including the AUTOSAR Classic platform and the Adaptive Platform, to meet modern automotive standards. This integration will help customers integrate more features into MPPA® based systems while still meeting isolation and security requirements.
