WATERLOO, Canada, Oct. 4, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- RoweBots Inc., the leading supplier of tiny embedded Linux-compatible real-time operating systems (RTOS) products, today announced that the Unison(TM) Operating System (OS) is a core component in a variety of medical equipment. The Unison OS controls operating room equipment, intelligent eyewear and other advanced medical devices for the home, physician's offices and hospitals.

The launch and release of Unison OS, Version 5.2 along with the Xilinx Microblaze softcore made this technology possible. Unison provides the key, high-performance software framework required. The Unison ultra-tiny embedded Linux-compatible RTOS opens a broad set of medical, embedded or imaging applications to Linux- and POSIX-compatible development with extensive connectivity options, data storage and substantially enhanced performance on the same hardware.
