RTOS Ropes In New MCUs

The Coldfire MCF548X and MCF547X processor families from freescale get a reliability boost from integrity. The Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS) from Green Hills Software is known for its hard real-time support and high-reliability features. It also brings along a resource reservation system. Its fast interrupt response time and rapid context switch are critical to industrial applications, such as process control and factory automation, which the new processors target. Also, Integrity is royalty-free. It works with Green Hills' Multi Integrated Development Environment as well.
