RTS will operate independently providing its x86 software as a wholly owned congatec subsidiary. The purchase will allow congatec to provide global sales and technical support for RTS products.
RTS provides solutions for the robotics, automation, medical and test markets, and the IIoT and Industry 40 will provide the opportunity for the company to move into new areas. The company also supplies its technology to embedded computer manufacturers.
Gerhard Edi, CTO at congatec explains, "We are investing in the sustainable growth of Real-Time Systems. We want to extend the functionalities of the RTS Hypervisor in order to open up new markets in the field of transportation. All RTS customers will benefit from these investments as the RTS Hypervisor is independent of any RTOS and GPOS, which gives us the chance to set new standards".
