Multi-purpose Realtime Operating System

Category: Operating System Services [RT]

This Product Standard defines interfaces and functionality to support the source portability of applications with realtime requirements. The product standard is aligned with ANSI/IEEE Std. 1003.1b-1993, ANSI/IEEE Std. 1003.1c-1995, and ANSI/IEEE Std. 1003.1i-1995. Realtime in operating systems is the ability of the operating system to provide a required level of service in a bounded response time. The requirements of this product standard are to implement the POSIX 1003.1b-1993 Realtime extensions, with optional support for the POSIX 1003.1c-1995 threads extension.

Product Standards are explained in Practical Guide to the Open Brand
