RedHawk Linux is an industry-standard, real-time, low-latency version of the open source Linux operating system for x86-based platforms. RedHawk is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and it leverages the power of multi-processing, multi-core technology. That makes it especially suitable for challenging server-class and embedded applications. RedHawk is available in two product versions:
- RedHawk Linux Server
- RedHawk Linux Embedded
Whether you’re running it in hard or soft real-time environments, RedHawk will deliver the guaranteed response you need. It’s ideal for a broad range of deterministic applications, including:
- Modeling and simulation
- Industrial control
- Financial trading
- Medical imaging
RedHawk delivers the lightning fast response time your business demands. We guarantee a user-level-application response time of 5 microseconds or less to external events when running on certified platforms.
The RedHawk Linux development environment features these valuable components:
- NightStar is a powerful, integrated tool suite for debugging and analyzing time-critical Linux applications.
- Architect provides an easy-to-use GUI that lets developers choose the packages and application modules to install for embedded applications.
Concurrent offers optimized compilers for the FORTRAN 77 and Ada 95* languages. Each compiler uses:
- A language-specific front-end
- A common back-end for code generation and optimization.
Optimization is tuned for best performance on the target platform.
