IntervalZero develops hard real-time software. The RTX and RTX64 products transform Microsoft Windows into a real-time operating system (RTOS).
Its most recent product, RTX64, focuses on 64-bit and SMP to replace dedicated hardware based systems such as digital signal processors (DSPs) or field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) with multicore PCs.
For instance, an audio mixing surface manufacturer which largely deployed DSP based systems, switched to personal computer (PC) based systems, dedicating multi-core processors for the real time audio processing. Similar designs can be found in simulation applications, where dedicated hardware used for processing simulation models are replaced by using dedicated RTX64 cores.
IntervalZero’s experience and expertise in embedded and real time technology extends back to 1980 with the founding of its predecessor company, VenturCom, which developed the technology that led to Microsoft’s first embedded operating system.
The firm has offices in Waltham, MA; Nice, France; Munich, Germany, and Taiwan, ROC.
This global presence is important because these solutions are deployed worldwide, primarily in industrial automation, military, aerospace, medical devices, digital media, and test and simulation software.
The corporate name, IntervalZero, comes from the firm's mission to deliver deterministic, hard real-time functionality. An "interval of zero" is the technical definition of the optimal experience between a system command and execution.
