Commercial home of this hard realtime OS, runs Linux as its lowest priority execution thread; for Alpha, some MIPS, PPC, x86; limited only by hardware. Contract work, custom development, board ports.
RTLinux's main architect gives advice for budding computer scientists. [ACM Crossroads]
Makes dual kernel RTLinux and RTCore/BSD, and OpenRTLinux RTOSs, realtime networking, protected memory, XML/RPC controls, embedded Linux developer kit; has RT developer tutorials and white papers; second tier support for Linux product vendors; software development, consulting (embedded, cluster, SMP).
Hard realtime OS, runs Linux as its lowest priority execution thread, on Alpha, some MIPS, PPC, x86. News, downloads, applications, documents, mail list, projects.
KURT introduction and analysis.
RTLinux doesn't try to change Linux into an RTOS, it instead provides a new RT kernel incorporating Linux as a low-priority thread, so the RTOS stays small, streamlined and keeps Linux as a base for common applications. [EE Times]
When dealing with realtime systems, IPC overhead becomes important; examines two of the best IPC mechanisms available for Linux: FIFO, shared memory. [Dr. Dobb's Journal]
