Infineon's TriCore hybrid 16/32-bit processor is now supported by the OSE Epsilon real-time operating system (RTOS). OSE Epsilon requires as little as 4 kbytes of memory and has a context switch speed of 300 ns. Worst-case interrupt latency is 1 µs. The Soft Kernel simulator allows development prior to hardware availability. Its RTOS-aware system-level analysis and profiling tool, known as OSE Illuminator, can monitor, control, and collect data for applications viewed as a sequence of events. OSE Epsilon for TriCore processors starts at $8000 for a single developer's seat.
