eSOL and Kalray Extend Their Cooperation to Address Demanding Needs of Automotive, Industrial and Medical Applications

Share

Kalray (Euronext Growth Paris: ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, and eSOL (Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers: 4420), a leading developer of real-time embedded software solutions, announce today the availability of eSOL’s eMCOS POSIX1 Real Time Operating System (RTOS) on Kalray’s MPPA® intelligent processor to address growing and demanding needs for performance, safety and security of Automotive, Industrial and Medical Markets. This support extends the already existing eMCOS Core profile that has been available for several years on the MPPA architecture.

eSOL is recognized as a key actor of embedded markets such as automotive, especially thanks to its contribution to AUTOSAR (“AUTomotive Open System Architecture”), the worldwide development partnership of automotive interested parties. Such a partnership enables the usage of a wide range of applications on Kalray MPPA® processor including advanced control frameworks like Robot Operating System for robot control, Autoware for autonomous driving, and other embedded software frameworks. Furthermore, eSOL has a strong presence and experience on medical and industrial markets.

“Massive system consolidation especially on the automotive domain, are now becoming realistic architecture option with the impressive amount of power available on the current and next-generation of Kalray’s intelligent processor” said Masaki Gondo, eSOL CTO. “eSOL and Kalray will continue this fruitful cooperation to provide relevant optimized and integrated solutions to satisfy our joint customers’ ever-growing needs for performance, safety and security.”

"Disruptive technology such as Kalray’s MPPA needs development environment such as eSOL’s eMCOS to enable smooth adoption at customers for a wide and growing range of applications. eMCOS POSIX provides a full-featured RTOS ensuring POSIX compatibility to OEMs, with the capability to execute multiple applications in parallel” said Stéphane Cordova, Vice-President of Embedded Business Unit at Kalray, “Combining eMCOS with the high performance of MPPA® processors gives customers a unique solution for a fast ramp up."

The usage of MPPA® in industries like automotive is facilitated using development environments that ease the adoption by customers, both OEMs and Tier-1s. This is the case for eSOL POSIX multi-process RTOS that offers the capability to define complex systems such as autonomous vehicles.

Such rich OS and middleware takes advantage of all the benefits of Kalray’s MPPA architecture and provides a consistent environment for customers to transition from MPPA® 2nd generation Bostan to 3rd generation Coolidge, reusing similar tools to develop applications.

eSOL’s unique distributed microkernel architecture enables optimal use of manycore processors such as Kalray’s MPPA®. While eMCOS Core provides a PSE51 single-context POSIX API for high-performance parallel computing, eMCOS POSIX adds PSE53 multi-process POSIX support for advanced software integration where more memory is available.

eSOL and Kalray are also cooperating to provide AUTOSAR-compliant software platforms, including both AUTOSAR Classic Platform and Adaptive Platform, to conform to modern automotive standards. This integration will help customers aggregate more functions on MPPA®-based systems, while still meeting the isolation and safety level requirements.

Impossible Foods Wins Injunction in EU Trademark Infringement Case2.6.2020 11:00:00 CESTPress release

A prominent European Union court granted Impossible Foods a preliminary injunction this week, ordering the global food conglomerate Nestlé S.A. to stop using the product name “Incredible Burger.” The District Court of The Hague ruled 27 May that the use of “Incredible Burger” in Europe infringed upon Impossible Foods’ ImpossibleTM trademarks, including Impossible BurgerTM, and was likely to confuse customers. As a result, Nestlé subsidiaries in Europe are prohibited from branding products “Incredible Burger.” If they fail to remove the infringing branding within four weeks, each of 10 separate Nestlé subsidiaries involved in the case would be subject to a penalty of €25,000 per day -- a companywide penalty of up to €250,000 per subsidiary during the duration of the injunction. “People specifically seek out Impossible Burger because it’s a superior product unique in the world of plant-based food,” said Dana Wagner, Impossible Foods’ Chief Legal Officer. “While we applaud other companies
