Selecting an Embedded OS
On-demand Web Seminar
This session reviews in detail all the facets of the make vs. buy and OS selection decisions - both technical and commercial - for an OS on an embedded design.
Most modern embedded systems employ an operating system [OS] of some kind, and this necessitates some critical design decisions. Should you obtain a commercially available OS or develop one in-house. If the acquisition of a commercial OS is planned, how do you make the selection?
What You Will Learn
- The pros and cons of commercial vs in-house OS development
- The way to make a choice between a conventional RTOS and other options
- How OS selection works in a multicore design
