Virtualization platforms now support 64-bit Windows
Upgrades to INtime and eVM for Windows from TenAsys enable larger real-time applications, better support for virtualization.
TenAsys Corporation, a provider of virtualization software for embedded computing applications, announces that its flagship products INtime for Windows real-time operating system (RTOS) and eVM for Windows embedded virtual machine manager software have been upgraded to support 64-bit Windows.
64-bit Windows allows more of the lower 4 Gb memory (32-bit address space) to be accessed by INtime RTOS, or the guest RTOS in the case of eVM, giving them access to substantially more memory. This enables larger real-time applications and Windows applications to be run on Windows, than was possible with the 32-bit Windows version.
In addition, eVM for Windows has been upgraded to work with Intel’s latest VT-x and VT-d virtualization technology. TenAsys says that eVM for Windows is the industry’s first virtualization software to fully leverage Intel’s virtualization hardware support to enable running guest operating systems with Windows on the same platform without requiring modifications to Windows, the guest OS, or the application software in both environments.
In keeping with its policy of supporting the latest development tools TenAsys has also updated INtime for Windows to work with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
