Embedded systems span a myriad of applications, ranging from simple micro-controllers to sophisticated medical imaging systems to complex industrial applications. At the heart of these diverse applications is an operating system — a software foundation that delivers a common set of services helping software developers deliver their product to market more quickly.
Enter Microware® OS-9®, the high-performance, high-availability real-time operating system platform. The Microware OS-9 real-time operating system (RTOS) has been deployed and proven in thousands of products worldwide and represented hundreds of embedded applications including industrial automation, control, automotive, and medical instrumentation.
Since February 2013 Microware OS‐9 is owned by a partnership of three companies, MicroSys, Freestation (Japan) and RTSI (USA).
MicroSys in Sauerlach near Munich takes care of customers in Europe and provides technical support, consulting and development services.
MicroSys actively continues development on OS‐9. Recent developments already provide support for ARM Cortex A8 and A9 cores with NXP’s latest i.MX5x and i.MX6 CPUs.
