INtime® RTOS Family Supports the New Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family

TenAsys Corporation (www.tenasys.com), a leading provider of real-time and embedded virtualization software, announces that its real-time operating systems INtime® for Windows® and INtime Distributed RTOS support the new Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 family from Intel’s LAN Access Division, designed to deliver customers a cost effective, feature rich solution.

“Adding the Intel Ethernet Controller I210 to our INtime RTOS has been a priority for TenAsys,” said Kim Hartman, TenAsys VP of Sales and Marketing. “As a leading provider of software for Industrial Systems, we see the I210 with multiple prioritized queues and integrated 1588 deliver low packet jitter and precision timing information, both critical attributes in Ethernet protocol control networks. These new services open up the possibility of controlling higher speed devices with tighter control loops."

The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 features a fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet media access control, physical layer ports, and SGMII/SerDes port that can be connected to an external PHY or backplane. Addressing the critical I/O services for demanding real-time Ethernet-based fieldbus protocols, the new Ethernet controller supports IEEE 1588/802.1Qas and IEEE 802.1Qav for applications requiring tightly controlled media stream synchronization, buffering and reservation. 

“The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 family extends Intel’s leadership in the Gigabit Ethernet market,” said Carl Wilson, embedded Ethernet product Intel Corp. “In addition to supporting desktop and server platforms, this new Ethernet controller provides multiple advanced features specifically targeted for the needs of Embedded customers.”
