Mentor Graphics, RTI Partner for IIoT

mentorgraphics_logoWILSONVILLE, OR, Oct 14 , 2016 – Mentor Graphics Corp. announced its partnership with Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the industry’s largest embedded middleware vendor for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) development. The combination of Mentor Embedded technologies and the RTI Connext DDS (data distribution service) middleware now provides security from the hardware up through the software stack for secure distributed embedded systems communications, suitable for industrial, medical and mil-aero applications.

Pre-integrated with Mentor Embedded runtime platforms, RTI Connext DDS enables OEMs and systems integrators to develop high-performance, real-time, safe and secure embedded systems with reduced risk, lower development costs and faster time to market.

“The IIoT disruption will bring immense value to nearly every industry. To meet the challenges, IIoT builders need end-to-end connectivity with security,” said Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI.  “Combining many technologies is a real challenge. An ecosystem of vendors with integrated products accelerates projects with much lower risk.”

The Mentor Embedded-RTI solution is standards-based, flexible and supports leading-edge multicore runtime platforms. Mentor Graphics was the industry’s first embedded software vendor to provide a comprehensive heterogeneous multicore framework for system-on-chip (SoC) development. Together with RTI, Mentor’s solution can be extended to provide real-time communications for heterogeneous distributed systems, independent of physical transport (Ethernet, wireless, shared memory, serial, etc.). Mentor customers can now rely on consolidated distributed industrial systems for components to share data securely with each other – critical for IIoT embedded development.

“Secure real-time communications for distributed systems is crucial for the IIoT market. Our broad portfolio of embedded technologies integrated with the RTI’s DDS middleware ensures system communications that are reliable, real-time, and secure,” stated Scot Morrison, general manager of Mentor Graphics platform business unit. “Our expertise in heterogeneous multicore enablement and security provides the ideal embedded solution that our customers require for today’s IIoT development.”

Product Support and Availability

The RTI Connext DDS technology supports the Mentor Embedded portfolio of runtime and tools products including Mentor Embedded Linux with Connext DDS Professional, and the Nucleus real-time operating system (RTOS) with Connext DDS Micro. As the relationship expands, additional integrations are planned with Connext DDS Secure and for systems requiring safety certification, Nucleus SafetyCert with Connext DDS Cert.
