CEVA and Quadros Systems announce that the Quadros Systems' RTXC RTOS is now available for use with the CEVA-X family of high-performance, low power DSP cores. RTXC RTOS provides the performance and reliability needed by SoC developers requiring an embedded solution for a wide variety of applications. It is available for all members of the CEVA-X family and is already in use by CEVA customers developing baseband SoCs and advanced audio and voice processing. The RTXC family of embedded RTOSes provides a low-overhead, flexible solution for customers working on CEVA-X based designs. The one-stop development and run-time solution includes the RTXC Quadros RTOS and the comprehensive CEVA-Toolbox suite of development tools for easy customization and programmability. This integrated offering gives developers a single point of contact for high quality tools and foundational software.
The Quadros Systems multi-kernel approach provides a flexible way to address the needs of all embedded applications, including DSP-based, DSP+MPU designs, and multicore SoCs. The RTOS' versatile API enables easy migration across architectures and applications while preserving customers' application code. It is scalable to allow customization of RTOS resources to specific applications, and designed to ensure low system overhead, low latency and responsive services. The RTXC support is available for the CEVA-X1622, CEVA-X1641 and CEVA-X1643 DSP cores, each delivering a different balance of performance, power dissipation and cost. Because the CEVA cores are software compatible, it is easy to move application code from one to another, significantly reducing investment in code development, tools and designer training.
