re: TI rolls open-source RTOS for MCUs

NO RATINGS
Given the long history of poor quality software devlivered by IC vendors I am reluctant to use any controller with a builtin ROM driver library or vendor code. These companies are not in the software business. their only goal is to deliver some examples on how to use the chip, not provide production ready, reliable and maintainable code. Jack Peacock

Hi, As a user of microcontrollers I don't like the idea that every semiconductor vendor rolls his/her own RTOS. That's IMHO more like a vendor lock in than anything else. Ideally a RTOS should enable you to switch semiconductor manufacturers easily. BTW I don't think that it will help to throw RTOS solutions to people in order to have more designs going to production. People need also to be trained how to use this kind of technology. Regards, Robert

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
