Details

Overview

This session reviews in detail all the facets of the make vs. buy an operating system selection decisions - both technical and commercial - for an operating system 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 embedded OS development
  • The way to make a choice between a conventional RTOS and other options
  • How embedded OS selection works in a multicore design
