Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2008
Quadros Systems, Inc., a leading provider of real-time operating systems (RTOS) today announced a breakthrough in embedded networking software design with the introduction of RTXC Quark TCP/IP software. Ideally suited to small-footprint, 32-bit systems, the new RTXC Quark software operates at lightning-fast speeds, promising lower power operation and reduced memory requirements. The new TCP/IP stack achieves these dramatic results through a combination of a revolutionary stack architecture and a tight integration with the RTXC Quadros single stack RTOS (RTXC/ss).
RTXC Quark TCP/IP software utilizes a high-speed dataplane architecture to rapidly process TCP, IP and UDP packets with minimal touching. The software also takes full advantage of the highly efficient, data-centric design of the RTXC/ss kernel. The result is an RFC-compliant, embedded 10/100 Ethernet solution that directly addresses the memory and power-consumption requirements of 32-bit replacements for 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers. Together, RTXC Quark TCP/IP software and the RTXC/ss RTOS operate in less than 30 KB of ROM and require only minimal RAM per socket. The ultra fast operation also reduces memory requirements because buffers are used quickly and then freed up.
“The significant surge in new low cost 32-bit microcontrollers has defined a clear need for software that can run efficiently in memory-constrained systems with limited or non-existent external bus structures,” said Stephen Martin, vice president of sales and marketing for Quadros Systems. “RTXC Quark TCP/IP software aggressively addresses the small footprint challenge and offers the additional benefit of low power operation.”
