YOKAHAMA, Japan – September 4, 2012 –Tensilica, Inc. and Ubiquitous Computing Technology Corp. (UC Technology) today announced that an optimized port of the µT-Kernel RTOS (real-time operating system) is now supported on Tensilica’s DPUs (dataplane processing units). µT-Kernel is ideal for embedded systems that require a very efficient, compact, and flexible RTOS. It provides excellent real-time performance with a small memory footprint. More information is available at the T-Engine Forum, http://www.t-engine.org/.

“We have been very impressed with how efficiently our optimized port of µT-Kernel runs on the Tensilica DPUs,” stated Tatsushi Morokuma, President, UC Technology. “This will be a perfect solution for many embedded applications.”

“We’ve supported the ITRON RTOS for many years. Now, through our partner UC Technology, we’re offering an optimized µT-Kernel port for our customers who want a very small, efficient RTOS,” stated Chris Jones, Tensilica’s director of Product Marketing. “We already have one customer who is using µT-Kernel for car infotainment systems and mobile phone applicationsand expect to have several more.”

UC Technology’s optimized version of µT-Kernel is available now. It can be used with most of Tensilica’s DPUs, including the popular HiFi Audio DSPs (digital signal processors), the ConnX family of baseband DSPs, and the Xtensa® customizable processors.
