The first result of this partnership demonstrates the cooperative execution of Windows Embedded XP and a real-time application in clearly separated partitions.

The first step of the cooperation roadmap is general support of AMD multi-core CPU’s within PikeOS. This will be followed immediately by support for AMD-V technology. As soon as the new I/O MMU is available, PikeOS will utilize it. This will be the last step to a complete virtualization environment. SYSGO will continue to support AMD’s single-core line…
