Although it might seem complex at first glance, the concept behind a real-time operating system, or RTOS, is a fairly simple one. An RTOS is little more than software that manages the time and resources of a CPU. In an RTOS-based application, the RTOS ensures that the most important parts of the application run when they are ready. This simple model happens to be a very effective one, which is why RTOSes are used in countless IoT and embedded systems.
In an upcoming webinar hosted by Beningo Embedded, Jean Labrosse will explain everything you need to know about an RTOS and expose both the benefits and drawbacks of RTOS-based systems in comparison with bare-metal code. In this 45-minute session, Jean will also discuss some of the tools available to help developers gain insight into a running RTOS-based application.
