Acontis Technologies Releases 7.1 Version of LxWin

Using 64 Bit Linux, in the future, it would be easy to simply use memory above the 4 GByte cap without the need to change the program as it will be appropriate for 32 Bit real-time solutions.

FREMONT, CA: Acontis Technologies launched a new version, 7.1, of its leading LxWin real-time extension. In addition to 32 Bit, LxWin 7.1 now supports 64 Bit Linux in real-time.  This aspect allows consumers to bring their real-time apps to the next level.

Increased performance on both integer and floating-point operations would improve overall performance as well as reduce device jitter. Additional advantages are improved stability as the 64-bit Linux kernel is more actively managed than the 32-bit version.

Acontis Technologies, headquartered in Ravensburg, Germany, was founded by Christoph Widmann and Stefan Zintgraf in 2001. As a major manufacturer of EtherCAT and Windows Real-Time applications, acontis represents clients in system builders, medical devices, automation, semiconductors, and robotics.

Using 64 Bit Linux, in the future, it would be easy to simply use memory above the 4 GByte cap without the need to change the program as it will be appropriate for 32 Bit real-time solutions. In addition to this significant feature upgrade, the latest release of LxWin 7.1 also contains a host of other enhancements:

• Support Linux kernel version 4.9.240.

• Complete Windows 10 2004 and Windows 10 20H2 support.

• WIBU Codemeter Runtime has been upgraded to version 7.10a.

• The default timestamp driver for the hypervisor now uses the TSC for improved performance results.

• More CPUs (though not formally accepted by Intel) will now benefit from Cache Allocation Technology (CAT) and Memory Band Allocation (MBA).

• Support of CAT CDP (Code and Data Prioritization). Using CDP, it is possible to install Code and Data Cache separately. This instance could help prevent sensitive code from being moved out of the Cache if broad storage areas are reached.

• The Windows/Linux communications Library now supports.NET Core.
