The RedHawk embedded development environment includes Concurrent Real-Time’s NightStar, a powerful suite of tools that can be used to bring applications to market more quickly. NightStar is a fully integrated toolset for debugging, analyzing, and tuning latency-sensitive embedded applications. NightStar tools run with minimal intrusion, enabling developers to graphically view and trace the interaction of their application threads with the Linux kernel in real-time in order to uncover performance bottlenecks.

The RedHawk Linux environment on the AGX Xavier also supports SIMulation Workbench™, a comprehensive hard real-time simulation framework that enables the execution of MathWorks® Simulink™ models, custom C/C++ code, and handwritten as well as MathWorks GPU Coder™ generated CUDA® code.

“RedHawk is the ideal RTOS for complex embedded projects such as intelligent devices, advanced robotic systems, networking, and other autonomous applications,” said Ken Jackson, Concurrent Real-Time President, and CEO. “With its unrivaled combination of ultra-low latency, high determinism, and advanced debugging tools, RedHawk delivers the guaranteed performance required to support all Jetson platforms.”
