Mentor Graphics RTOS supports Softing software

October 082015

October 8, 2015 - Mentor Graphics announced the availability of Softing Industrial Automation stacks for the Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS) and Mentor Embedded Linux products.  The combination of Mentor runtimes with the Softing industrial middleware stacks makes interoperability possible between automation and control systems, field devices, and enterprise applications. 

The combination provides an integrated solution for fast and efficient deployment of EtherNet/IP and OPC UA based solutions to move data between devices from different vendors.  

The Nucleus RTOS is a real-time deterministic operating system that is both full-featured and scalable.  The Nucleus RTOS is ideal for resource-constrained industrial sensors and devices as well as resource-rich real-time embedded systems.  The Mentor Embedded Linux platform is a complete Yocto Project-based Linux distribution that has been fully tested for reliability and optimized for industrial performance.  The addition of Softing’s industrial stacks to Mentor Graphics’ runtime solutions provides users with access to decades of embedded and industrial automation and runtime expertise.
