Tokyo, Japan. June 11, 2008 - eSOL, a leading developer of real time embedded software solutions,
announced today that Casio has selected its eCROS real time operating system
(RTOS) platform, for their EXILIM Pro EX-F1 digital camera with ultra-high
speed burst shooting performance. eCROS is the latest platform solutions
suite from eSOL, and encompasses high-quality, proven RTOS, middleware,
and development tools seamlessly integrated together to allow developers
to concentrate on application development. Casio adopted PrKERNEL®v4
RTOS, PrUSB®/Device USB driver, and eBinder® Integrated Development
Environments for the EXILIM Pro EX-FI model.
Casio has been using the compact and fast PrKERNELv4 RTOS in the past few
years for their EXILIM® product lines such as EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1200,
Hi-Zoom EX-V7, Zoom EX-Z1050, Zoom EX-Z80, and Card EX-S10, because of
its reliability and proven performance. With this latest EXILIM model,
Casio has extended to use additional eSOL software, including eBinder and
PrUSB/Device, to shorten the overall development cycle while increasing
system reliability. eBinder is the IDE dedicated for ITRON-based software
development, and helps improve the development cycle with multiple debugging
and analysis tools. PrUSB/Device is a USB driver with a mass class driver,
and has been optimized to achieve higher throughput.
EXILIM Pro EX-F1 boasts the world's fastest (*1) burst shooting performance,
targeting higher amateurs and professional camera users. This model incorporates
a high-speed CMOS sensor and a high-speed LSI processor. With this model,
Casio has achieved an ultra-high-speed burst rate of 60 frames per second
(fps) for still images, together with 1,200 fps high-speed movie recording
that captures movement faster than the eye can see, for ultra-slow motion
replay. Moreover, the new model can record movies at full High-Definition.
