DDC-I Announces Windows 7 and Windows 10 Support for Legacy Ada 83 Compilers and Tools

Phoenix, AZ. July 29, 2016. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission-and safety-critical applications, today announced the availability of Windows 7 and Windows 10 hosts for its legacy Ada 83 and Ada 95 compilers and development tools. The development systems provide cross compilation for a variety of processors, including the Mil-Std-1750A processor, Intel 80×86 family, Intel i960, Motorola 68k family and MIPS processors.

“Mil/aero and other DoD applications frequently have long life cycles that can leave developers languishing with obsolete and unproductive development tools,” said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing and product management at DDC-I. “DDC-I is committed to supporting our customers with the tools they need to maintain and upgrade their applications throughout the product life cycle, however long that might be.”

The DDC-I Ada Compiler System (DACS) supports Ada 83 and features a symbolic debugger, automatic recompilation, tree-structured sublibraries, selective linking, stack analysis (static and dynamic), real, protected and unsegmented flat modes, CIFO and RTS entrypoint packages, and rate monotonic scheduling. The run-time system supports preemptive priority scheduling and round-robin time slicing, a high-speed scheduling mode, and semaphore operations.

DDC-I’s TADS Ada Development System supports legacy Ada 83 development with the Tartan Ada 83 compiler and AdaScope, a multi-windowed symbolic debugger. The compiler provides target-specific and Ada-specific classical optimizations, with five optimization levels that permit the proper optimization strategy at each point in the development cycle. Representation specifications and support for address clauses enhance control over the generated code format, while predefined pragmas, implementation-defined pragmas, and support for unchecked programming provide control of compilation characteristics and run-time performance.
