RTI's ScopeTools Will Support Wind River's New VxWorks AE/Tornado 3.SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ --
Today, Real-Time Innovations, Inc. (RTI RTI - Return from interrupt ) announced it will provide the popular ScopeTools(TM) product suite to embedded software developers using Wind River Systems', Inc. (Nasdaq: WIND) new Tornado(R) Tools 3 embedded development environment for the VxWorks AE real-time operating system(RTOS (1) (RealTime Operating System) An operating system designed for use in a real time computer system. See real time system, embedded system, process control and OS-9. ). The ScopeTools are visualization tools for data monitoring, execution tracing, performance tuning, and memory analysis.
"Developing reliable and secure software solutions has become increasingly important in the Internet age," said Dave Sheaffer, director of product marketing for Wind River's Platforms business unit. "We are excited to further extend our long-time Windlink partnership with RTI. By combining Wind River's new VxWorks AE RTOS with RTI's quality debug and analysis tools, including the scope tools, we can deliver innovative solutions that help developers get to market faster."
VxWorks AE is the newest operating system offering from Wind River, designed to meet customers' needs for reliability, availability, serviceability (system, design, hardware, software) Reliability, Availability, Serviceability - (RAS) Three key attributes of a computing system design. See reliability, availability, and serviceability. and security (RASS RASS ROSAT All-Sky Survey
RASS Radio Acoustic Sounding System

Based on our experience, we think the ScopeTools analysis suite and the RASS capabilities of VxWorks AE make a powerful combination for developers of the new generation of smart devices."
ScopeTools(TM) is a suite of four tools that give you the visibility you need to understand your real-time system and make it work. Each tool offers simple, one-touch operation without code instrumentation or recompilation Re`com`pi`la´tion

StethoScope(R), the real-time data monitor, lets you watch any variable in your system while it runs. One of the original WindPower(TM) tools, it is now the most popular third-party tool for Tornado.
TraceScope(TM), the execution-flow tracing tool, eliminates the chore of instrumenting code with printf() statements to understand dynamic program operation. It instantly shows which routines in a program were called, when they were called, and what arguments were passed.
ProfileScope(TM), the dynamic CPU CPU

Principal component of a digital computer, composed of a control unit, an instruction-decoding unit, and an arithmetic-logic unit. execution profiler, measures code performance function by function. It provides the information programmers need to write fast, efficient code.
MemScope(TM), the instant memory analyzer, shows you which functions are allocating and, perhaps, leaking memory. It ensures faultless long-term operation.
RTI ScopeTools 3.0 for the Tornado Tools 3 environment for VxWorks AE will be available Q1 of 2001 from Wind River. For more information, contact Wind River at 800-545-WIND or http://www.windriver.com or Real-Time Innovations at 408-734-4200 or http://www.rti.com .
