Metrowerks has added deterministic scheduling capabilities with the launch today of OSEKturbo OS Version 2.2. Developed in accordance with the Software Engineering Institute's highest Capability Maturity Model (CMM) rating, the operating system is designed to help developers of automotive controls systems improve memory usage, shorten development cycles and ultimately create more reliable, safer solutions by uncovering system timing problems early in the development process.
The company claims that with OSEKturbo OS Version 2.2, automakers will have the ability to design, analyze and collect data about the timing behavior of an OSEK real-time system using Rate Monotonic Analysis (RMA) techniques. The additional functionality allows developers to identify recommended task priorities that define the optimal system under the requirements provided.
OSEK developers can use the Metrowerks CodeWarrior integrated development environment to handle board bring-up and application tasks.
The OSEKturbo OS is available for a number of 8-, 16-, and 32-bit microcontroller architectures. It is available now for order.
