eSOL Debuts MCOS Real-time Operating System for Embedded Many-core Processors

eSOL has completed prototype development of a real-time OS (RTOS) for many-core processors, tentatively called Many-Core real-time OS (MCOS). According to eSOL, MCOS will be the world’s first commercial RTOS for embedded many-core processors. eSOL’s MCOS is currently in use on the Renesas Electronics RH850-based MPU implemented on FPGAs with 16 hardware threads in four CPU cores (the virtual equivalent of 16 CPUs).

FreeRTOS v7.0 Open Source Embedded Real-time Operating System

Real Time Engineers Ltd. launched version 7.0 of FreeRTOS, which is a free real time MCU operating system. The latest version of the open source embedded RTOS includes a new software timer implementation. The timer enables callbacks to be executed in a task context (instead of interrupt context). It does not consume any processing time or generate any run time overhead unless a timer has actually expired. FreeRTOS v7.0 is backward compatible with FreeRTOS V6.x.x.

Wind River VxWorks RTOS v6.9 Features 64-bit Support

Wind River announced version 6.9 of VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). VxWorks 6.9 features 64-bit computing support (in data and code execution) and improved multi-core processing support in both symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and asymmetrical multiprocessing (AMP) configurations. VxWorks 6.9 is the first commercial-grade RTOS to fully support 32-bit and 64-bit processing on Intel Architecture. VxWorks 6.9 will be available in March. 64-bit VxWorks RTOS is ideal for telecommunications (such as network infrastructure equipment), industrial and medical applications (like high-definition imagery), and aerospace and defense applications (like highly complex radar, sonar and sensors).
