Common System Plane (CSP)
 
 

EION Common System Plane (CSP) offers a seamless high-speed interface to various RTOS. Total flexibility to port to proprietary and new Operating Systems.



CSP Highlights and Literature

EION Open IP Environment Common System Plane demonstrates the following key features:

  • Lowers total cost of ownership by enabling large-scale extensibility of software
  • Improves accuracy with a “type-safe” object oriented interface
  • Allows for “faster time to market” by de-coupling application-independent components from application-specific components
  • Achieves scalability through Common System Plane ApplicationProgramming Interface (API) for these services:
  1. Operating System Abstraction Layer (OSAL)
  2. Thread Management
  3. Reactor for Event De-multiplexing and Dispatching
  4. Configuration Management
  5. Logging
  6. Memory Management
  7. Hashing
  8. Synchronization
  9. Messaging
  10. Timers
  • Enhances portability by means of OSAL and platform independent interface which uses OO features
  • Provides high performance, reliable and tested components


CSP Technical Specifications

Runtime Environment Capabilities
OSAL
OSAL delivers a layer of abstraction that ensures platform independence
Thread manager
Thread manager is an enhancement to the threading facility of many operating systems residing in the framework as it manages threads at group levels by suspending and resuming, sending signals, and waiting on a group of threads. The thread manager is configured to force the threads to “punch” themselves periodically to prevent them from being timed out.
Run-time Environment Services
Reactor
Configuration Manager
Configuration Manager provides a common interface for dynamic configuration of the registered applications (i.e. configured objects) at run-time. It supports
Event logging
Event logging in the Open IP Environment Common System Plane is used as the initial source of information for detecting and diagnosing system errors.
Memory Management
The Open IP Environment Common System Plane provides a portfolio of dynamic memory management schemes.
Hashing
The Open IP Environment Common System Plane supports a portable and very efficient (i.e. O (1)) hashing utility with a small footprint, for inserting, retrieving and erasing data elements of any type.
Synchronization
The Open IP Environment Common System Plane supports different locking mechanisms, which achieves synchronization.
Messaging
Modern real-time applications are constructed to use independent tasks that communicate with each other using messages. The most common method of message-based communication is with a message queue.
