Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Encore Computer Corp has introduced a new machine that combines a Concept/32 processor with its 88000 RISC-based machine. The result is to create the RSX 90 System, which runs both real-time Unix and MPX-32. The RSX 90 System features a development and execution environment based on Encore’s UMAX V Unix and MPX-32 operating systems. A windowing terminal interface is available and this uses Macintosh-like commands and functions in an icon-based screen. RSX 90 users get access to software engineering tools with graphical user interfaces, VME-based input-output options, along with incremental compute and graphics processing power for use in real-time applications. The RSX 90 also features Network File System, GOSIP, Fibre Distributed Data Interface and X25 interfaces. IEEE 754 floating point for data sharing with other RISC systems is available and, you will all be relieved to hear that UMAX V is fully POSIX certified, or so the company says. The RSX 90 co-processors are interconnected via Encore’s patented Reflective Memory System. Multiple RSX 90 systems can be connected via this Reflective Memory System to form a cluster. Multiple clusters, each one spanning distances of up to a mile, can be configured using Encore’s Fibre Optic Reflective Memory Systems. Clusters also can include other members of the Encore 90 Family as well as Concept/32 systems which can be configured together to form scalable systems for complex application requirements. Entry-level prices for the RSX 90 system start at $159,900.
