Phar Lap ETS Builds on Proven Track Record of Reliability and Stability

WALTHAM, MA - January 4, 2006

Ardence, a leader in designing and developing embedded software, today announced the 13th major release of its real-time operating system, Phar Lap ETS. Since its original release, ETS has provided hundreds of companies with a solution to easily develop and deploy high-performance embedded products on x86-based systems. With 12 major updates, ETS has been enhanced with many features and capabilities while retaining its status as one of the industry's most reliable, user-friendly, and highest-performing real-time operating systems. The latest version includes TCP/IP multi-cast support, 256 levels of priority and kernel-level memory protection.

The Phar Lap ETS is a Win-32 real-time operating system for x86-based architectures. Its hard real-time performance and robust development environment and toolset enable efficient deployment of stable and reliable embedded applications. Because it works with standard PC-based hardware, ETS allows for cost-effective deployments and short development cycles. Additionally, it enhances the widely-deployed and well-known Microsoft Developer Studio Integrated Development Environment with a number of plug-ins so developers can create complex embedded applications as easily as they can develop Windows applications.

Enhancements in version 13.0 include:

"ETS 13.0 is the result of Ardence's continued commitment to its customers," said Stephen Woodard, Senior Vice President of Global Operations at Ardence. "With hundreds of customers spanning many verticals, ETS benefits from our ability to tap into key insight about the new features and capabilities that will make ETS continue to be a cutting-edge product," said Woodard.
