MapuSoft Technologies Announces the Newest Release of OSChanger 2.5, a Streamlined Software Tool for porting software from one RTOS to another

September 23, 2002, MOBILE, AL, – MapuSoft Technologies (MT) today announced the release of OSChanger® 2.5, a cross RTOS development/target solution that allows embedded software to easily adapt to multiple RTOSs. It comprises of fully scalable compatibility and abstraction solutions that allow developers’ code to work across multiple RTOSs.

“The OSChanger abstraction solution is NOT a layer between your software and the RTOS,” said Raj Johnson, president and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. “The RTOS equivalent APIs provided by the OSChanger abstraction solutions are implemented wrapper-less to greatly preserve the performance of the underlying RTOS.”

Release 2.5 provides a customizable abstraction solution that can be ported to support various commercial and proprietary RTOSs. Off-the-shelf, wrapper-less RTOS integration is available for Nucleus PLUS and ThreadX and the associated RTOS prototyping environments. The compatibility solutions include a set of UNIX device independent I/O APIs, a core set of ANSI APIs, most of the pSOS application/driver APIs and extensive VxWorks application/driver APIs compatibility. Customized POSIX support for selected RTOSs is also available.

“In the current economy, developers are concerned with the costs and risks associated with new code development. OSChanger compatibility solutions will greatly help developers reuse a wide variety of code base and significantly save both time and money,”said Johnson.

OSChanger tools hide the RTOS differences and allow developers to focus on their product development. OSChanger simplifies porting and also saves developers from future porting efforts. The OSChanger family of products gives users the freedom to switch RTOSs and greatly reuse existing code base to enable their product to get to the market faster with low development costs. These products come in the form of individual compatibility and/or abstraction API libraries that are fully scalable and readily usable within an application. OSChanger does not require modification to the underlying RTOS products.
