Integrated Solution Will Deliver the Performance and Reliability Required in Next-Generation Network Equipment

Enea® (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a global software and services company focused on solutions for communication-driven products, today announced that the Enea OSE® real time operating system supports the new IBM PowerPC® 476FP Core that will be used in the LSI(TM) Multicore Platform.  The innovative LSI Multicore Platform utilizes the new PPC476FP as one of its key building blocks providing communications infrastructure equipment developers with a high-performance foundation for building a broad range of next-generation network equipment.   

"Enea is pleased to be a multicore RTOS partner for LSI's new communication processing solution" said Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at Enea. "Customers are looking to reduce the time it traditionally takes to assemble their own components when starting a new project. The combination of OSE, the PPC476FP Core and the LSI Multicore Platform will give a tangible edge by delivering extreme performance while increasing developer efficiency and reducing design complexity." 

"Next-generation networking systems require powerful multicore communications processing technology," said Tareq Bustami, multicore product marketing director, Networking Components Division, LSI. "The LSI Multicore Platform powered by the PPC476FP Core technology combined with the Enea OSE provides a highly integrated, scalable solution that reduces risk and development time, enabling OEMs to get to market faster."     

Enea OSE is a modular, high-performance, full-featured, real-time operating system optimized for complex multicore systems requiring the utmost in availability and reliability.  To take advantage of the latest multicore processors, Enea OSE is configured with a unique and innovative kernel design that combines the advantages of both traditional Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) and Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) while avoiding the disadvantages inherent in both programming models. OSE's pre-emptive real-time response, memory protection, supervision, error handling and run-time program loading make it ideal for building fault-tolerant distributed systems based on multicore architectures that require true deterministic real-time behavior with five nines or higher availability.
