SAN DIEGO, 1 June 2009. DDC-I, a supplier of software products and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, is publicly demonstrating its Eclipse-based OpenArbor development tools with the safety-critical Deos commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) real-time operating system (RTOS) at Avionics USA and the Military & Aerospace Electronics Forum 2009 in San Diego.
"DDC-I's integration of Deos and OpenArbor couples a best-in-class Eclipse-based development front end with the avionics industry's most widely deployed DO-178B Level A certifiable COTS RTOS," claims Greg Rose, vice president of marketing at DDC-I. "Together, OpenArbor and Deos provide the lowest risk, lowest cost, and fastest path of any COTS solution to DO-178B certification."
OpenArbor is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE). Featuring C and C++ optimizing compilers, OpenArbor provides a color-coded source editor, project management support, automated build/make utilities, and a multi-window, symbolic debugger.
The debugger recognizes C and C++ expressions and can view objects, expressions, call chains, execution traces, interspersed machine code, machine registers, and program stacks. The debugger is non-intrusive, can debug at the source or machine level, and can be enabled without changing the generated code, says a company representative.
Deos is a robust, high-performance, real-time operating system for safety-critical applications.
