Core Technologies

Redbend’s products and solutions are based on Redbend 10, a software management platform that leverages the company’s core Smart Delta and Virtualization technologies to meet the growing needs of automotive OEMs and Tier 1s as well as device manufacturers and device enhancers in the IoT and mobile markets. . Both are innovative technologies that bring software management efficiencies to all types of mobile and connected devices. Redbend’s patent-protected Smart Delta and Type-1 Virtualization are at the core of Redbend’s intellectual property.
Smart Delta

Smart Delta

Redbend’s Smart Delta technology is used to compare two versions of software, a source version and a target version, mostly in the form of binary executable image files. Identifying only the essential changes, the delta, between the source and target versions guarantees the smallest and most efficient update file. Redbend’s Smart Delta performs an advanced comparison between any two images identifying the changes between both in content and in code location. The technology recognizes the difference between new content and generated content such as changes to reference pointers in the code. Smart Delta technology then creates the instruction set defining how to open up and install the delta on the target device to construct a bit-for-bit identical target version by combining the installed source image and the delta. In addition, a by-product of this technology is a full analysis of the changes between the source and the target images.
Type-1 Virtualization

Type-1 Virtualization

Redbend’s advanced virtualization technology is based on Type-1 virtualization, also known as bare-metal virtualization. The technology includes a hypervisor that virtualizes access to the CPU and memory and backend/front-end drivers that virtualize access to the peripheral hardware devices. The hypervisor serves as the scheduler to run multiple operating systems simultaneously and allocate the hardware resources according to the needs of the OS and predefined priorities. Integration time is saved and development reuse is enabled by virtualizing the processing unit and memory as well as virtualizing dedicated peripheral hardware used for networking, I/O and multimedia.
