    Excalibur Solutions, Inc. has extensive experience in the 'UNIX world'. This experience can assist you in getting your project in on time and under budget.

    The track record by Excalibur Solutions Inc. includes projects ranging from a single custom driver to a full-blown turn-key system with custom drivers, applications, procurement, project management and life cycle documentation.

    The engineers at Excalibur Solutions Inc. have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the UNIX operating system.

    Areas of expertise:

    • Application level design.
    • PCI and VME Custom device drivers.
    • Custom hardware.
    • Data Communications.
    • Networking.
    • Multi-processor applications.
    • Porting from Proprietary platforms.
    • System Administration.
    • System Design.
    • System integration.

    Because the engineering staff at Excalibur Solutions Inc. has 'grown-up' in the real-time multi-processor UNIX arena, we are intimately familiar with the software methodology required to get such a system running with the least investment. Excalibur Solutions Inc. can also show you some of the common pitfalls encountered when designing a multi-processor system; this only comes from experience.

    Excalibur Solutions has also taken several systems based on older, more expensive proprietary platforms and successfully ported the applications and hardware functionality to Unix based systems. One year of system maintenance savings can pay for the new system and porting costs. Quite often, not only is the hardware based on older technology, the software is also. A side advantage to the porting of an existing system, the software can be upgraded to current technology. This can decrease software maintenance costs and add 'life' to the application.

    The current 'hot' system is based on the Alpha processor by Digital Equipment. These Alpha processor based systems are currently some of the fastest on the market, but also one the most difficult to program, especially at the driver level. This is because Dec Unix on the Alpha has a multi-layered I/O sub-system. Excalibur Solutions has produced several successful projects utilizing Alpha based systems.

    Please allow Excalibur Solutions to supply you with a competitive and innovative solution for your next consulting and/or integration project.
