SCIOPTA Systems AG is announcing the immediate availability of the SCIOPTA Real-Time Operating Systems for the AMCC PowerPC 405 and 440 families.

The SCIOPTA PPC400 RTOS is written in highly optimized assembler and specifically tuned for the PowerPC 405 and 440 processors. This results in a very high performance and a low memory footprint.

SCIOPTA is fully dynamic. All system resources such as modules, processes and message memory pools can be created and killed during run-time.

Beside the fast Real-Time Kernel there is IPS (Internet Protocols, TCP/IP), IPS Applications (Web Server, DHCP, DNS, SMTP, Telnet, TFTP etc.), SFFS (Flash File Systems), USB support, embedded GUI graphics support and the DRUID System Level Debugger available.

SCIOPTA is royalty free and supports actually the C/C++ compilers and environments from GNU GCC and Windriver/DIAB. A precompiled version of GCC is included on the SCIOPTA CD.

AMCC’s® PowerPC 440EP

The PowerPC 440EP embedded processor offers exceptional performance, design flexibility, and robust features geared to demanding Imaging, industrial control, networking and other embedded applications.

With speeds of up to 533MHz, PowerPC Book E Architecture, and a rich peripheral mix, PowerPC 440EP processors are ideally suited for a wide range of high-performance applications.

AMCC’s® PowerPC 405EP

The AMCC PowerPC 405EP 32-bit RISC processor is designed to provide a flexible, fast time-to-market hardware solution to satisfy the demands of high- performance embedded applications. Implemented in the scalable PowerPC Architecture™, the 405EP processor maintains code compatibility with other PowerPC processors for ease in migration and fast time-to-market.

An optimized balance of performance, low power, and features makes the PowerPC 405EP an ideal solution for communication, data storage, and pervasive computing applications.

The 405EP processor supports speeds of up to 333MHz and incorporates a rich mix of features, such as two Ethernet MACs, a PCI interface, an SDRAM Controller, and other on-chip peripherals. In addition, power management features, a small form factor, and low power consumption make the AMCC 405 processor family an ideal platform for applications ranging from networking to video.
