Enea awarded Best of Show at Embedded Systems Conference

Enea OSE Multicore Edition Recognized as most Innovative Product Introduced at Leading Tradeshow

Enea® (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a global software and services company focused on solutions for communication-driven products, today announced that Enea OSE Multicore Edition has been selected as Best of Show at TechInsight's Embedded Systems Conference – Boston.  OSE Multicore Edition features a groundbreaking kernel design that blends the advantages of both traditional Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP) and Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP). VDC Research Group served as the jury and awarded the prize, which was based on an exhaustive set of criteria including innovation, business significance, availability and other factors. 

"Software is the key to releasing the power and value of multicore processors," said Steve Balacco, Director at VDC Research Group. "The unique approach taken by Enea with OSE Multicore Edition delivers the performance of linear scalability with a simple programming model and architecture. Products like this address the challenge to development organizations of being able to make full use of multicore processors within device development." 

"We are thrilled to be recognized as the Best of Show at the Embedded Systems Conference" said Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at Enea.  "This award further validates the feedback we are seeing with prospects, customers and partners.  The hybrid approach we have taken solves real development challenges by providing an integrated, scalable solution that unleashes the full power of the latest multicore processors." 

Enea OSE Multicore Edition kernel delivers on the ease-of-use promise of SMP when it comes to simplicity, flexibility, application transparency and debugging but behaves like an AMP RTOS when it comes to scalability, determinism and performance. OSE Multicore Edition provides a homogeneous and portable application framework with linear scalability for high speed processing applications while at the same time being a feature rich RTOS offering POSIX file systems, SMP threading and full IP networking support. API compatibility with Enea OSE means legacy OSE applications will be fully supported – guaranteeing a smooth transition to multicore processors. In addition, Enea OSE Multicore Edition offers the option of a "friction free" execution model on individual processor cores that can host run-to-completion software at bare metal speed.
