The INtime® 5 SDK supports two usage configurations:
- INtime® for Windows, where the INtime RTOS runs alongside the Microsoft® Windows® operating system
- INtime® Distributed RTOS, where INtime runs as a stand-alone multicore RTOS
Familiar, easy-to-use development environment
INtime® applications are edited, compiled and debugged using the same Microsoft Visual Studio tools that are used to build standard Windows applications - eliminating the need to learn or purchase other development tools.
The INtime® development environment includes Visual Studio project wizards with which basic applications can be built by the simple selection of fundamental code building blocks. These may then be expanded upon as necessary. Integration with the online help system ensures quick access to the details of the INtime real-time application programming interface (API).
The INtime® real-time programming environment includes a comprehensive INtime API and a subset of the WIN32 API which facilitates the process of porting existing Windows based C-code applications to the INtime environment.
The Windows part of an INtime® for Windows application may be developed and debugged at the same time as the INtime real-time application part. Any .NET language may also be used to create the Windows part of an INtime for Windows application.
The seamless integration of the INtime® development environment into Visual Studio as a plug in including the context sensitive debug engine for INtime® allows for an efficient, total solution driven development process in C and C++.
