Picking the right RTOS for your embedded and IoT designs

A major challenge for developers is how to take advantage of RTOS capabilities to achieve design goals. But even before that there is the problem of picking the right RTOS for the job, easier said than done in a design environment with many alternatives available.

Using RTOS semaphores – Part 1: Resource semaphores

In this first in a series of three blogs on the many uses of RTOS semaphores, Ralph Moore provides some basic guidelines on the use of various types of resource semaphores to control access to hardware resources.

Consider the source when selecting your RTOS

While having the source code for the RTOS you use is important, clean, clear, commented, consistent, and correct code is critical to the success of your design.

Selecting an operating system for an embedded application

How to determine whether or not your application needs to use an embedded OS and if so what factors do you have to consider in picking the right one for your design.

A comparative study on operatintg systems for wireless sensor networks

An examination and comparison of existing OSes for WSNs, including TinyOS, Contiki, and LiteOS as well as some traditional embedded RTOSes such as VxWorks.

Providing OS support for wireless sensor networks: challenges and approaches

A comprehensive review of existing work in sensornet (aka IoT) operating system design from the perspective of OS developers and users and a taxonomy of current sensor OS capabilities and features.

Towards an OS for the Internet of Things

A description of RIOT, an open source real time operating system that explicitly considers devices with minimal resources but eases development across a wide range of devices.

Blocking and non-blocking RTOS APIs

How RTOS blocking system calls work and how they can be used to manage CPU time, distribute tasks and manage other resources such as peripherals.

RTOS basics in the 21st century: Multitasking Survives

Invented in the age of mainframes and minicomputers, the role of operating system-mediated multitasking is thriving in RTOSes as the best way to manage embedded system resources in real-time and deterministic way.

Selecting the right RTOS scheduling algorithms using system modelling

Ranjit Adiga describes how his company did away with the need for a full RTOS implementation by using a hardware/software system modelling tool to build a dedicated scheduler.

Porting an AUTOSAR-Compliant RTOS to a high performance ARM embedded platform

Porting of the Arctic Core operating system commonly used in automotive applications to an ARM-based Raspberry Pi for use in applications based on AUTOSAR.

Extending RTOS Functionalities for Embedded Heterogeneous Multi-Core Systems

An extensible RTOS architecture for embedded heterogeneous muti-core processors that splits the RTOS kernel, which runs on a less powerful core and delegates functions to the user-level kernel (UK) that runs on another more powerful core.
