Support for Operating Systems
Operating systems provide control and task management functions while speeding the development and bring-up of system software. Using Tensilica's OSKit邃｢ porting technology, commercially available OS solutions are fully supported on application-optimized Xtensa configurations, accelerating system development and reducing schedule and technical risk.
Real time operating systems available for Xtensa include ThreadX from Express Logic, uC/OS II from Micrium, Nucleus Plus from Mentor Graphics, and ROSES from Tata Elxsi.
Tensilica's DPUs can also use open source Linux (see Xtensa Linux site).
