What is.....?

Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) has become critical for almost every organization. Its growth in the past decades has been exponential. Today it is used by almost 75% of all organizations using software code. The process of mass collaboration and peer production sustains innovations in mature software markets. The application of FOSS extends the useful life of any software asset.

At AimValley we have developed our own Quality Assurance Process for developing any product with or without Open Source Software, while addressing any possible risks.

Full White Paper on FOSS.

Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of substandards  of the IEEE 802.1 standard. The standards define mechanisms for the time-sensitive transmission of data over deterministic Ethernet networks.

It is an essential prerequisite that all network equipment has the same understanding of time. All switches and terminals on the network must be time synchronized. There are two different approaches to facilitate these functionalities;
– IEEE 1588-2008 – Precision Time Protocol
– IEEE 802.1AS-2011 – Time

Today’s industry applications require increasingly more consistent Ethernet networks. Time Sensitive networking (TSN) provides a solution aiming to guarantee latency times of real-time criticial data throughout the network.

Serial Rapid Input/Output

Ultra low latency describes a computer network that is optimized to process a very high volume of data packets with an extraordinarily low tolerance for delay (latency). These networks are designed to support real-time access and response to rapidly changing data.

“Ultra” low latency is measured in the hundreds of nanoseconds with only speeds under 1 millisecond qualifying as ultra low. It is almost exclusively used to support high-frequency trading systems.

Broadcom Support

AimValley has hardened and integrated RoboOS into AimOS resulting in a new version called AimOS Robo. Hardening was done by adding features like;

  • file system robustness

    fully resilient against power failures with very little run-time overhead.

  • persistent logging

    adding functionality that stores all debug information of the system to a circular logon the system’s flash chip as well, for retrieving the contents of the log through the systems web interface.

As a result AimOS Robo can now be used as a field grade switch management application for the Broadcom Robo series switches without the need for an external CPU.

More on AimOS Robo.

The AimOS family of software assets and tools runs on the Broadcom System on a Chip (SoC).
