Aonix(R), a provider of solutions for safety- and mission-critical applications, announced the release of ObjectAda Real-Time RAVEN V8.3 for Windows platforms targeting PowerPC. ObjectAda Real-Time Raven implements the Ravenscar profile, a restricted subset of the standard Ada runtime environment for applications requiring safety certification or a high-level of confidence in proven and fully tested runtime execution predictability.
ObjectAda Real-Time RAVEN V8.3 continues the Aonix legacy of delivering certifiable applications to both commercial and government safety-critical projects in avionics, space, high-speed rail, and nuclear industries. Aonix gained its solid reputation in the safety-critical field by designing tools that comply with market standards and has provided safety-critical solutions to a myriad of commercial and defense projects including International Space Station, Boeing 777, Rafale Multi-Role Combat Fighter, C130-J Hercules, Airbus A 330-340, and NH90 Helicopter. For systems not requiring formal certification, ObjectAda Real-Time Raven provides the assurance that the Ada runtime used in resource-constrained systems has been rigorously proven and tested.
ObjectAda Real-Time RAVEN V8.3 allows developers to choose between the traditional Aonix IDE for development and the new AonixADT(TM) Eclipse plug-in. Geared to maximize developer ease and efficiency, AonixADT incorporates Ada-project awareness, an Ada-language sensitive editor, Ada-language compile and build capabilities, and a complete Ada debugger interface, enabling Ada developers to enjoy state-of-the-art interface capabilities. AonixADT is being added to ObjectAda at no additional cost.
“Continued improvement of the ObjectAda product in support of the Ravenscar profile demonstrates Aonix’s commitment to support complex and rigorously stressed mission-critical systems with standard software development platforms,” noted Gary Cato, Aonix Director of Strategic Alliances. “Full Eclipse support for hard real-time and safety-critical embedded development adds another great development asset to our product line that our customers are eager to use. Such standard platforms take COTS integration to a new level of easy to use and cost-effective solutions.”
AonixADT implements plug-ins compatible with Eclipse standards V3.1, 3.1.1 and 3.1.2. Eclipse is an open-source software development project dedicated to providing a robust, full-featured, commercial-quality, industry platform for the development of highly integrated tools. A strong supporter of the Eclipse Foundation, Aonix has gone to great lengths to lock-step with evolving Eclipse specifications. Aonix has released ADT plug-ins with ObjectAda V8.2 native development products for Windows, Intel/Linux, and Sparc/Solaris platforms.
