API Lets Developers Target Multiple RTOSs

A real-time operating system (RTOS) generally provides hardware portability. Mapusoft's OSChanger 2.5 provides RTOS portability. OSChanger is a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that developers use in applications.

The wrapperless implementation supplies an efficient link between the application and the chosen RTOS. Applications written to the OSChanger API can be run on VxWorks, ThreadX, eCOS, and Windows, with more platforms in the works. The API also suits use with device-driver development.

The OSChanger 2.5 pricing for individual components starts at $3995. They are royalty free and come with full source code. The abstraction solution for each RTOS port starts at $9995.
