ITTIA, a developer of high performance database products and tools, and Micrium, a real-time operating system (RTOS) provider for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), have rolled out a solution that promises high-performance data processing for mission-critical applications. According to them, the integration of ITTIA DB SQL and µC/OS RTOS allows for data saved in relational tables on both internal and external storage to be safely shared.

Developers directly control task prioritisation and database transaction boundaries to effectively manage shared processing and storage resources. Transactions automatically protect tables from various race conditions without blocking all access from other tasks. Database recovery also protects tables from inconsistency by never saving incomplete transactions.

The embedded market is experiencing great demand for a complete one-stop development platform that includes sophisticated data management for complex and connected devices. The combination of ITTIA and Micrium μC/OS provides a single resource for developers to safely manage and share data. Information is organised in a portable format suitable for long-term storage and interoperability with standard interfaces.

More powerful systems demand intelligent data processing capability to offer a competitive edge. Data distribution in ITTIA DB SQL enables applications to achieve high availability by replicating or synchronising tables in a background task, protecting mission-critical data from potential disaster. When data is continuously shared with web services or other devices, the database software ensures that each new record or update is only transmitted once. Industry standard transport-layer security (SSL/TLS) protects remote transmissions when enabled in Micrium’s μC/TCP-IP.
