Twin Oaks Computing and aicas Team Up to Deliver Realtime, Distributed Solutions

Design West, San Jose, CA, USA – Monday April 22, 2013

Aicas and Twin Oaks Computing announce a new partnership to provide Twin Oaks Computing’s CoreDX DDS Data Distribution Service Middleware on aicas's JamaicaVM hard realtime Java-based platform. The integration of CoreDX DDS with JamaicaVM has been verified and is now available on a wide variety of operating system and CPU combinations. The low latency interprocess communication of CoreDX DDS complements

JamaicaVM runtime's deterministic, low latency and low jitter execution. Multithread, multiprocessed, and distributed realtime applications can now be developed using the DDS open standard, the Java programming language, and legacy code. Both JamaicaVM and CoreDX DDS are widely used in time-critical and mission critical applications including defense systems; aerospace; transportation; industrial control; Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA); and other applications.

James Hunt, CEO of aicas GmbH said, “We are excited about the combination of JamaicaVM with CoreDX DDS middleware. Developers now have solutions for virtually any combination of multithreaded, multiprocessed, and distributed systems. DDS enables transparent integration between heterogeneous CPU architectures, and independence of distributed component implementation. Providing our developer community with verified middleware further reduces their implementation risks.”

Clark Tucker, CEO of Twin Oaks Computing, agrees: “The partnership of aicas and Twin Oaks Computing
brings Java users higher performance and lower latencies, while lowering overall product development costs and reducing project risk. Twin Oaks Computing is excited to introduce the DDS standard to new users.”
