DDC-I, Inc. is a software development company providing real-time operating systems, software development tools and software services for safety critical embedded applications. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, DDC-I is a privately held corporation.
Founded in 1980, DDC-I is a provider of complex COTS and custom embedded solutions. The first product released in 1985 was a development toolset for Ada. Support for mixed language development was added in 2000 with the addition of C & Embedded C++ programming languages. The company was an early contributor to the Ada standard as well as contributors to the Java “Expert Group” for Safety Critical Java. In November 2008 the company entered the embedded real-time operating systems (RTOS) market with its products, Deos and HeartOS, based on underlying software technology originated at Honeywell International Inc.
In 1997 the company was awarded a joint contract with Sikorsky Aircraft and Boeing Defense & Space Group's Helicopters Division to develop software to be used in the Boeing/Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche.
- Deos is a time and space partitioned real-time operating system (RTOS) that was first certified to DO-178B level A in 1998. Deos contains several patented architectural features including enhancements for processor utilization, binary software reuse and safe scheduling for multi-core processors. Deos users have the ability to add on optional ARINC-653 personality modules designed to fit different application needs. Deos supports the PowerPC, x86, ARM and Mips architectures and was selected as one of the Hot 100 Electronic Products of 2009 by EDN Magazine.
- HeartOS is a POSIX-based hard real-time operating system that has been designed for small to medium embedded applications including safety critical applications. HeartOS operates on x86, PowerPC, ARM and other 16-bit and 32-bit processors. It is configurable without the POSIX interface layer for memory-constrained systems.
- OpenArbor is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment for C, Embedded C++, and Ada application development.
