MQX Real-time Operating System

MQX Real-time Operating System provides proven performance, with blazing real-time speed within a tiny footprint. MQX RTOS is designed to be easy to configure to balance code size with performance requirements; alternative settings can be selected, benchmarked and iterated to optimize cost and performance.

Depending on platform and options chosen, MQX RTOS can be configured to take as little as 6K bytes of ROM, including kernel, interrupts, semaphores, queues and memory manager. MQX RTOS delivers the performance that demanding customer have come to expect in leading RTOS solutions as well, on a 200 MHz PowerPC® MPC8248, interrupt latency came in at 0.331 Ásec and context switch time was benchmarked at 0.558 Ásec.

Delivering the proven benefits of integration of RTOS and tools for years.
MQX RTOS has helped leading companies bring embedded products to market for years. During this time, developers have come to rely on the way MQX RTOS works with their tools to help them keep on schedule. For example, MQX RTOS's Task Aware Debugging, in conjunction with MetaWare® SeeCodeTM Debugger, provides developers with transparent visibility of tasks and key RTOS information, such as tasks, task templates, task queues, semaphores, lightweight semaphores, mutexes, events, message queues, message pools, partitions, user memory blocks, system memory blocks, names, the kernel data structure, the MQX initialization structure, interrupt handlers, and the kernel log. State-of-the-art tool integration has been also been done with CodeWarriorTM and other leading toolchains.

MQX Host Tools for Windows
MQX RTOS also comes with MQX Host Tools. This set of advanced Windows-hosted embedded development tools includes:

Business-Friendly Source Model
MQX Embedded has been an early leader in providing customer-friendly business models. The MQX RTOS is licensed with full source code, so there are no mysteries and there is no legal ambiguity. The MQX RTOS provides excellent source code without wondering about potential exposure to the open-source legal quagmire. Whatever our customers develop is theirs; their proprietary features and code can remain as private as they decide. What's more, the MQX RTOS is licensed without royalties, so it offers a blend of the best of both the professional software world and the open-source world.

Part of a comprehensive set of protocol stacks and components to speed development
MQX RTOS is at the center of a wide array of protocol stacks and run-time components, all available from MQX Embedded in source form, that work with the MQX RTOS to round out the capabilities of today's advanced embedded devices.
