New MDE 4.1 Release Provides the Latest 3.x Linux Kernel, a Complete Java Environment, and the Latest in Open Source Tools Including gcc, gdb and valgrind

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Tilera® Corporation, the leader in 64-bit manycore general purpose processors, has released its Multicore Development Environment™ (MDE) version 4.1 building upon their industry leading software development environment. The release includes a complete Java development environment and the latest in Linux and GNU features. This release, coupled with the 64-bit TILE-Gx™ family of processors, provides the most programmable and highest performance/watt/sq-in/$ platform for embedded and datacenter applications.

With the explosive growth of data and network traffic, there is a critical and growing need for more computational efficiencies. OEMs must provide higher performance, while using less space, consuming far less power, and providing more agility to dynamically implement features in ever decreasing development cycles. The TILE-Gx processor family, powered by the MDE 4.1 release, is solving these customer problems and shipping in volume production across a variety of applications including:

  • Intelligent networking solutions
  • Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS)
  • Application Delivery Controllers (ADC)
  • Next generation firewall appliances
  • WAN optimization appliances
  • Routers data-plane processing
  • Software Defined Networks (SDN)
  • Video collaboration
  • Data-mining and forensics

"With the MDE 4.1, we are providing customers with the industry's best tools and most familiar and standard programming models. Our customers leverage the performance, power, and space benefits of the TILE-Gx processors and do so with fewer, more readily available, engineering resources," said Michael Zimmerman, vice president of marketing at Tilera. "In the embedded market, customers are moving away from fixed function SoCs and difficult to program devices such as FPGAs, DSPs and NPUs and are widely adopting the TILE-Gx processors. Similarly, in the datacenter market, the TILE-Gx is being used to maximize performance, while reducing the total cost of ownership."

"Tilera's MDE is a complete Linux environment which any software engineer can use right out of the box. At APX, we run hundreds of C/C++ and Java applications unmodified using Tilera's MDE and the TILE-Gx," said John Martellaro, CTO at APX Labs. "Our AnchorPoint product is a real-time platform that connects mobile users, smart glasses, sensors, machines and applications together. Mission critical scenarios use AnchorPoint for biometrics, device automation, surveillance, and data analytics. When combined with Tilera's MDE and the TILE-Gx, AnchorPoint gives our customers the most advanced, high-performance, real-time software framework running on the highest performance-per-watt-per-square inch hardware platform on the market today."

The Tilera MDE provides a comprehensive software environment including:

  • Linux: kernel 2.6.40 (3.0)
  • Open source libraries: binutil, glibc, and 3800+ CentOS 6.3 RPMs
  • GCC: 4.4 and 4.6 cross and native compilers with support for 32 and 64-bit libraries
  • Open source tools: gdb, oprofile, mudflap, perf-events, valgrind, and eclipse
  • Java: openJDK 1.6 and hotspot server JIT
  • TILE-Gx optimized libraries for mPIPE, MiCA, TRIO, USB, and other SoC components

"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
The WebRTC Summit New York, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, announces that its Call for Papers is now open.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it.
