Beaverton, OR – February 19, 2009 – TenAsys Corporation (www.tenasys.com), a leading provider of real-time OS and virtualization software technology, announces their technology partnership with Quanser of Ontario, Canada who will port their QuaRC multi-functional software suite to the TenAsys INtime RTOS for Windows.

QuaRC is a multi-functional software suite that seamlessly integrates with the MathWorks Simulink environment for rapid prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop testing of real-time control systems. Using QuaRC with INtime, a controller design can be quickly converted into real-time application code that runs directly on the INtime RTOS, while the development environment runs in parallel on Windows, on a single multi-core PC platform. Control parameters can be varied directly from the Windows interface while the code is running on the INtime RTOS, allowing for rapid design and test iterations of hard real-time control applications on a Windows PC.

"QuaRC on INtime yields a control platform with a powerful user interface and deterministic control," said Paul Gilbert, CEO of Quanser. "This pairing speeds up the testing process and eliminates the need for separate real-time hardware, which decreases system complexity and cost."

"By giving QuaRC users a highly-integrated real-time Windows platform, we have brought a new level of utility to analysis and control software," said Kim Hartman, TenAsys VP of Sales & Marketing.
