Ardence Releases Version 7.0 of Market-Leading RTX Software

Control Solution for Windows® Improves Functionality and Performance

WALTHAM, MA - July 12, 2006

Ardence, the global leader in developing software platforms for the on-demand world, today released version 7.0 of RTX, its market-leading real-time solution. Ardence RTX is the only software solution architected as a high-performance extension to control Microsoft Windows® without having to interfere with or modify any of the Windows infrastructure.

RTX provides functionality that gives developers deterministic control of Windows-based systems that require a high level of performance and scalability. This real-time control solution allows developers to reduce system costs, improve reliability, speed the time to market and increase the performance of their applications.

Ardence RTX 7.0, with continued support of multi-core architectures, introduces a powerful new feature for RTX developers – support for Host/Target debugging using Visual Studio 2005 and .Net 2003. Host/Target debugging allows the debugging of an RTSS application on target hardware running an RTX runtime environment from a development system. Host/Target debugging includes a debug agent that resides on the target and provides Ethernet-based communications back to the host machine running the debugger.

“RTX 7.0 is the result of Ardence’s continued commitment to its customers’ complex systems and changing design needs,” said Stephen Woodard, Ardence Senior Vice President of Global Operations. “No other Windows-based product provides what RTX does, and we will continue to add cutting-edge functionality and capabilities that deliver value to customers and strategic partners worldwide.”

Additional features introduced in RTX version 7.0 include:

RTX is deployed widely in industrial automation, military and aerospace, simulation, robotics, test and measurement and medical devices. As a COTS-based software solution, RTX can enable the elimination of costly and aging proprietary hardware-based systems. Evaluation versions of RTX can be downloaded at no cost.
