About this course

This session consists of a short PowerPoint presentation followed by a live demonstration of Microkernel Profile for VxWorks®, a small-footprint real-time operating system (RTOS). Two types of systems can be created, built, and executed: nanokernel and microkernel. A nanokernel system contains “fibers”—tasks that execute until blocked or complete. A microkernel system contains tasks and are priority-preemptive. For both nanokernel and microkernel, all OS objects (fibers, tasks, semaphores, events, etc.) are statically configured and allocated.
Microkernel Profile fibers and tasks can be executed in a distributed multi-core or mutli-processor environment with deterministic performance (patents pending).
Microkernel Profile can execute on real hardware, QEMU emulator, and Wind River® Simics®.

Based on: VxWorks 7 SR4xx
