Low-to-middle volume consumer, automotive and communication system-on-a-chip (SoC) hardware performance can be enhanced by integrating a real-time operating system (RTOS) that optimizes utilization of the SoC's relatively tight resources. Such an RTOS has been developed for NEC Electronics’s System-On-Chip Lite (SoCLite), a 32-bit CPU ARM7TDMI-based customizable controller and SoC design platform. SoCLite allows designers to randomly implement application-specific functionality with a pre-designed and pre-verified ARM7TDMI-based microcontroller subsystem using ASIC design methodology. The OSE RTOS for SoCLite reduces the RTOS overhead with its typical footprint of 5 kB. The OSE real-time kernel is optimized to provide low latency and high rates of data throughput in a compact size suitable for resource-constrained embedded systems. The OSE RTOS comes with extensive support of development tools. An OSE development license for the NEC SoCLite kernel and board support package is available for $8,000.
