DDC Announces Linux Support for Symmetric Multi-Processing Systems

Bohemia, New York (October 2008) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces updated Software Development Kits (SDK) for MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 data bus applications that support Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) under the latest Linux operating system versions. SMP support can increase the performance of a Linux system. DDC’s SDKs allow users to develop C source code to simulate, monitor, or troubleshoot 1553 and/or ARINC 429 data buses simultaneously or independently, with support for Linux 2.6 with Symmetric Multi-Processing and Hyper-Threading. This SDK allows you to quickly integrate DDC’s cards into your C code applications. A common SDK exists across multiple operating systems allowing the programmer portability across different platforms. The easy-to-use high-level functions abstract all low level hardware accesses and memory allocation such that specific hardware knowledge is not required.

“The addition of SMP support to DDC’s software is part of our continued investment in software updates and performance improvements for MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 products”, said Mike Hegarty, DDC’s Data Bus Marketing Manager.

Data Device Corporation (DDC) is recognized as a leading international supplier of high-reliability data interface products for military and commercial aerospace applications for over 40 years and MIL-STD-1553 products for more than 25 years. DDC’s broad product line consists of advanced data bus technology for high speed Fibre Channel networks, MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 data bus boards/components, synchro/resolver technologies, and solid state power controllers and motor drives.
