Rabbit Semiconductor Releases RabbitSys Software for Remote Management of Embedded Devices
December 15, 2005 -- Rabbit Semiconductor, Inc. has released RabbitSys, an operating system that delivers program reliability for Ethernet-enabled, embedded applications. The RabbitSys kernel available now pre-loaded on the powerful RCM3365 RabbitSys core module, provides embedded systems designers the ability to update, monitor, configure, detect, diagnose, and even debug embedded systems from remote locations.
RabbitSys increases reliability by providing extensive feedback during development and debugging cycles. RabbitSys safeguards access to embedded system resources, like I/O and system memory, assuring software integrity.
According to the company, RabbitSys is easy to use and helps system integrators save time and money. Those who already work with Dynamic C will find RabbitSys easy to work with using the RCM3365 RabbitSys core module. Features such as the program monitor, the event handler, and safe system shutdown cradle your application and make it resistant to external transient errors. RabbitSys creates a solid foundation and increases system reliability for Rabbit-based embedded systems programmed with Dynamic C.
The remote capabilities of RabbitSys enable embedded programmers to raise e-mail alerts when a software failure occurs. During such failures, RabbitSys takes the necessary steps to return attached equipment to its default state. RabbitSys removes the burden and expense of sending out a technician. Instead, a simple network connection and software update to the malfunctioning device repairs the problem. RabbitSys also scales with the deployment of new devices, allowing you to manage many devices concurrently.
A RabbitSys Development Kit includes everything needed to get your application running quickly and easily. The kit comes complete with a RabbitSys ready RCM3365 RabbitCore module, a prototyping board, Dynamic C development software, RabbitSys CD with samples, and documentation.
Pricing and Availability
The development kit sells at $409 and a standalone RabbitSys enabled RCM3365 core module sells for $113 and $96, in quantities of 10 and 100, respectively. RabbitSys standalone software (available January 2006) will sell for $299/CD, and $289/Download. RabbitSys software today works with the RabbitSys enabled RCM3365 core module and in the future will be supported on additional RabbitCore modules.
