Davis, CA – Rabbit Semiconductor, Inc. has introduced RabbitSys, an operating system that delivers program reliability for Internet-enabled, embedded applications.
RabbitSys increases reliability by providing extensive feedback during development and debugging cycles. RabbitSys safeguards access to embedded system resources, like I/O and system memory, assuring software integrity.
RabbitSys is easy to use and helps system integrators save time and money. Those who already work with Dynamic C® will find RabbitSys easily adaptable to their current Rabbit-based systems. Existing Dynamic C applications can be compiled under RabbitSys with little or no code changes in order to increase protection, reliability, and convenience. Features such as the program monitor, the event handler, and safe system shutdown cradle your application and make it resistant to external transient errors. RabbitSys creates a solid foundation for rabbit-based embedded systems programmed with Dynamic C.
RabbitSys’ assurance of reliability extends beyond the confines of the development environment. The remote capabilities of RabbitSys enable embedded programmers to raise e-mail alerts when a software failure occurs. During such failures, RabbitSys takes the necessary steps to return attached equipment to its default state. RabbitSys removes the burden and expense of sending out a technician. Instead, a simple network connection and software update to the malfunctioning device repairs the problem. By using RabbitSys’ reliable remote update feature, you remove the need to “roll a truck” to fix the software bugs.
RabbitSys will be available in December 2005 and comes preloaded on select Rabbit-based hardware.
