Using Linux as an Embedded Operating System
Choosing an operating system for an embedded system is always going to involve some level of compromise. An example that is relevant to today’s advanced systems is the trade-off between ease of software development facilitated by a particular operating system and the processing power required to run it. This paper will attempt to share some insights gained on a real project that adopted Linux as the platform on which to run applications that control and manage a sophisticated Digital Microwave Radio product. During the course of the project, the promise of being able to use completely free, mainly open-source software and development tools was put to the test with a good measure of success.
