Operating system product supplier Chorus Systems Inc has joined forces with Advanced RISC Machines Ltd to move its products onto the ARM RISC architecture. The two companies are describing the products resulting from the partnership as Choruson-ARM products, and say the move was prompted by customer demand for a powerful, integrated system based on one operating system and one processor. The products that have been ARM-enabled are the Chorus/Micro, a small, real-time, embedded kernel, the Chorus/ClassiX, a fully-configurable real-time operating system and Chorus/JaZZ, a Java enabled operating system. Chorus says the Chorus/ClassiX’s unique Componentized operating system architecture enables the configurations within the application to seamlessly scale from small embedded instances of 10Kb to high functionality, distributed levels. The company also says it can exploit software written in legacy code and off-the-shelf applications, setting them up as evolutionary paths for the building of new products. Chorus claims its JaZZ product is the most advanced Java-enabled real-time operating system in the industry, and believes it is ideal for mission-critical embedded systems and non-stop operation. The company says Chorus/JaZZ takes distributed object technology and puts it together with the concept of platform-independent applications, as implemented by Java. Chorus says it has ARM-enabled its products following customer demand, but adds that it will continue to support existing ‘common’ microprocessors such as AMD’s and Sun Microsystems Inc’s. A company spokesperson said the agreement opened up new opportunities for Chorus in the growing intelligent device market, which includes equipment such as set top boxes, and said it believes its operating system would benefit from the ARM addition.
