CHOOSING AN RTOS
We want our customers to buy what they need—and only what they need. Real-time operating systems can provide a tremendous amount of value, but they are NOT required for every embedded system design. The article linked to the button below, "Choosing a RTOS," is meant to help those who know they need a real-time operating system for the embedded system design.
Below are other RTOS-related resources. For even more information, visit our resource center, which is filled with helpful material for making software purchase decisions as you design or update your system and consider which real-time platform vendor is right for you.
