AXIS Software Development Tools

is a modular architecture that puts control in the engineer’s hands. It can cut development time, reduce project costs and shorten time to market. It offers benefits that reach from the initial stages of system design all the way through hardware and software changes at the later stages of the application life cycle.

AXIS delivers the ability to significantly optimize communications between processors, enabling processing resources to be used more efficiently. It provides extreme flexibility of transports, including ®, , , , Posix shared memory, shared memory and . It uniquely supports heterogeneous architectures including multiple processor architectures (Power PC/Power Architecture, , ) and operating systems (, , ).

In addition to simplifying application development, AXIS creates a layer of abstraction between the application and the hardware and operating system. This independence offers the added benefits of portability and scalability.
