Planning to visit the Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference 2019? Jean Labrosse (Software Architect, Silicon Labs) will present a pre-conference workshop introducing the fundamentals of real-time operating systems.
Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference 2019

An RTOS is software that manages the time of the CPU as well as other devices tied closely to the CPU such as a floating-point unit (FPU) and a Memory Protection Unit (MPU). An MPU limits access to memory and peripherals. This Pre-Conference Symposium introduces attendees to the world of RTOS by explaining what an RTOS is, how it works, how to use an RTOS and its services, the benefits and drawbacks of using an RTOS, process separation using an MPU, debugging an RTOS-based application, providing recommendations when using an RTOS, and more.
