Somerset, UK-based Perihelion Distributed Software Ltd has named the two mystery big name takers for its Helios real time operating system for Advanced RISC Machines Ltd ARM chips (CI No 3,228). They are Wyse Technology Inc and M-Power Corp. Wyse is using the small footprint operating system in its Winterm 1000 product, code-named Elite, which was unveiled at Comdex this week (see separate story). Meanwhile M-Power is set to implement Helios in its enhanced display internet telephones developed with GTE Corp and Spyglass Inc (CI No 3,248). Perihelion says it’s been working closely with Wyse since February to integrate Helios with Citrix’s ICA protocol and the graphics library from Award Inc, giving the Winterm offering a Windows look and feel. Managing director Jon Powell describes the deals as extremely important endorsements, and claims the main attraction of Helios as a distributed operating system is its ability to manage distant resources, which he claims should give it an important role in the rapidly emerging thin client market.
