Overview
During this technical session we will explore the reasons why or why not to chose an RTOS, and see some trends in the industry that give the RTOS new life.
For the past several decades embedded systems with some complexity always relied on an RTOS to get the job done. However, during this time, there have been advancements in compute technology that have increased the system complexity as well as decreased the cost for memory. Software solutions have seen the creation and advancement of open source OS solutions like Linux or Android. But are they the panacea that some make them out to be.
RTOS's are known for several things: Small, Deterministic, Fast Boot and Certifiable. While some applications are easily adapted to Android or Linux there are some that need the capabilities of an RTOS.
What You Will Learn

  • Key differences between an RTOS and open source solutions like
  • Linux and Android
  • Where an RTOS is the right choice
  • What are some new trends in RTOS development
Who Should View
Anyone who is considering using an OS in their next design, but aren't sure if an RTOS is the right choice for their project

Hi, A lot of you are asking for the presentation slides. Whereas it might take a while for the presenter to reply, why don't you all shoot some questions/issues regarding RTOS that you are curious to know, if any. Myself & others can try to help you in this. Please focus your questions around RTOS concepts, & not a specific RTOS
