AdaCore Releases GNAT Pro 17 Development Environment for SYSGO’s PikeOS RTOS

Date 2017/3/23 8:12:04 | Topic: Product News

AdaCore has announced the release of its GNAT Pro 17.1 development environment for SYSGO’s Real-Time Operating System PikeOS®. With GNAT Pro 17.1, Ada users targeting PikeOS® will see a number of product enhancements, including upgrades to the underlying code generator and debugger technologies (to GCC 6 and GDB 7.10, respectively), better elaboration order handling, improved stubbing in GNATtest, and enhanced debugger support in the GNAT Programming Studio (GPS) IDE.
AdaCore and SYSGO are longtime partners in the embedded market, with Ada’s reliability benefits providing an excellent match for SYSGO’s safety-critical PikeOS® RTOS. Over the past several years, the companies’ joint customers have developed certified Ada applications meeting the highest levels in software standards such as EN 50128 (rail). GNAT Pro for PikeOS® is especially suited for high-assurance embedded applications, thanks to its configurable run-time capability and its high-integrity profiles. The Zero Footprint (ZFP) profile minimizes (and in fact generally eliminates completely) all code in the executable other than the compiler-generated code for the application, and applications needing concurrency support can take advantage of both simple and extended versions of the Ravenscar tasking profile.

“Supporting RTOSes that help our customers build software that matters is part of our core strategy at AdaCore,” said Jamie Ayre, Commercial Team Lead at AdaCore. “Over the years, customers have benefited from a close integration of our technologies and the common goal of providing a solid platform for building high-integrity software.” “For the past 10 years, SYSGO and AdaCore have enjoyed an effective and synergistic cooperation,” said Markus Jastroch, Director of Marketing at SYSGO AG. “Our shared experience and deep knowledge of safety-critical applications has benefited our customers, in one example helping a multicore project successfully achieve Safety Integrity Level SIL 4."
