Tartan, Inc. develops, markets, and supports optimizing cross-compilation systems and related software tools for developers of real-time, embedded applications. Tartan's products are anchored in its highly developed optimization technology, its particular expertise in runtime development, and its debugging technology--all directed at producing fast, small, reliable object code, the principal requirements for real-time embedded applications.

Tartan has recently released the first commercially available Ada development systems for embedded processors that incorporate features of the Ada 95 language revision. These capabilities include the protected type, hierarchical libraries, a full Ada 95 parser and priority queueing. The user may select between Ada 83 code and Ada 95 code with a simple command line option. Additional Ada 95 facilities will be added in future incremental releases.

Tartan offers Ada development systems for four groups of embedded processors:

Tartan also offers TartanWorks, an integration of the Tartan Ada Development System for Motorola 68xxx processors with Wind River Systems' VxWorks real-time operating system.

Tartan Ada development systems are hosted on Digital Equipment's VAX/VMS and the Sun Microsystems SPARC workstation running SunOS or Solaris. Each Tartan Ada development system is validated by the U. S. government.

Each Tartan Ada development system includes the following core components:

Tartan Ada development systems also include a number of important packages:
