Beaverton, OR – Sept 8, 2005 - TenAsys Corporation announces immediate availability of INtime 3.0, the only protected-mode RTOS for Microsoft® Windows®. Significant new features include support for symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) using Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (HT) and dual-core processors. INtime 3.0 is also fully integrated within the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (VS.NET) integrated development environment (IDE).
HT and dual-core SMP processor systems can be configured for shared or exclusive operation. A shared system splits one CPU between the INtime RTOS and Windows, whereas exclusive operation dedicates one CPU to the INtime RTOS and its real-time processes; in both cases, remaining CPUs are dedicated to Windows.
The INtime 3.0 real-time development environment is fully integrated within VS.NET so you can edit, compile, link, and debug real-time processes without leaving the Microsoft IDE. You have full access to breakpoints, source-level single-stepping, and watch variables to debug your real-time processes and threads, eliminating the need to master a second set of development tools.
In the event of a CPU fault, the affected real-time process is suspended and the VS.NET debugger opens at the precise point of the exception; unrelated processes continue to run without interruption. CPU faults can result from common programming errors such as a divide by zero, improperly initialized pointers, and stack overflows.

About TenAsys and INtime
INtime Real Time Extensions for Windows is a fully featured RTOS derived from iRMX. Applications written for the INtime RTOS execute with guaranteed determinism as fully-protected user-mode processes in concurrence with the Microsoft Windows operating system on standard PC hardware. Because real-time application code executes in user-mode the INtime environment is immune to application faults that crash kernel-mode driver solutions.
In 2005, TenAsys celebrates 25 years of continuous use of their iRMX RTOS product. Customers worldwide have entrusted TenAsys’ RTOS products to provide reliable deterministic control of their Intel x86 architecture embedded computers in a wide array of mission critical applications including: medical, telecomm, industrial control, robotics, test & measurement, and military.
For the second year in a row Microsoft has recognized TenAsys as its Windows Embedded Partner of the Year. Cited for its efforts as an independent software vendor in enhancing the performance of Microsoft’s Windows operating system for mission-critical, real-time applications, TenAsys is the only software company to receive this award two years in a row.
