eXpressWare Fabric Software for VxWorks

eXpressWare for VxWorks is supported by Dolphin's shared memory SISCI API. This open standard API provided VxWorks customers a comprehensive tool kit for developing and deploying applications using a PCIe Network.

PCIe Networks are designed for performance and reliability. eXpressWare based applications can deliver latencies as low as 540 nanoseconds when communicating with other systems on the PCIe network. PCIe Networks minimizes latency and maximizes the throughput.

Combined with the SISCI API, customers developing hard real-time systems that benefit from the real-time characteristics of PCI Express. The software enables customers to build tightly coupled networks for PCIe cabled or backplane applications. The SISCI software fully support communication to other computers in the network running Linux, Windows or RTX.

Availability

eXpressWare for VxWorks is available for all Dolphins PCI Express based adapter cards (IXH610, IXH611, IXH620, PXH810, PXH830, PXH840, MXH830) and for a number of Single Board Computers from Curtiss-Wright.

The software supports a variety of chipsets from major silicon providers such as Microsemi, IDT and PLX/Broadcom and can be customized to support third party boards and applications.

eXpressWare supports VxWorks 6.9 and 7.0. VxWorks customers seeking a reflective memory solution find eXpressWare ideal for low latency reflective memory systems. It delivers extremely low latency as well as high performance communication capabilities. eXpressWare customers exploit the full capabilities of PCI Express.
