Selecting an Operating System for Your Embedded Application
On-demand Web Seminar
This webinar details the decision making process and shows how the technical features of an OS, whether purchased, obtained as open-source software, or developed in-house can affect engineering and business concerns and how the cost elements are often non-obvious.
Selecting an embedded operating system (OS) may be a complex process. This software component may be purchased from a commercial vendor, obtained as open-source software, or developed in-house. A balance must be maintained between competing interests and full account taken of both technical and commercial parameters to determine which approach makes sense.
What You Will Learn
- The trade-offs between commercial, open-source and an in-house OS
- What technical parameters are associated with selecting an OS including Open Source
- How selecting an OS can affect system design, like memory and power consumption
- The balance between commercial and development concerns
- What technical questions to ask an OS vendor
