SYSGO’s Safe & Secure PikeOS virtualization platform now implements the ARM Cortex-A15 processor to further boost performance. PikeOS is both an RTOS and hypervisor built upon the Safe and Secure Virtualization (SSV) technology that enables multiple operating-system interfaces (“Personalities”) to work safely and securely on separate sets of resources within a single machine. The hardware-agnostic platform supports both single-core and multicore processors. It includes CODEO, an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that provides guided configuration, remote debugging, target monitoring, remote application development, and timing analysis, as well as standard compilers and assemblers. By supporting hardware virtualization, the platform now offers the same level of performance as if running different applications alone on the same processor. At Embedded World (Feb. 25-27 in Nuremberg, Germany), SYSGO presented a demo consisting of a Cortex-A15-based target board running applications on top of a Linux partition under PikeOS. It showed that Linux didn’t suffer any loss in performance while being hosted by PikeOS.
