- Significant Performance Gains on Minimal Memory Footprint

Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) and IBOSN Systems Co., Ltd. announced today the port of the JBOSN high-performance RTOS (real-time operating system) onto Atmel's AT91CAP9S customizable microcontroller. The JBOSN RTOS(TM) is a real-time, preemptive, multitasking kernel designed for time-critical embedded applications. It achieves significant performance gains on a reduced memory footprint relative to other operating systems of comparable functionality.

The JBOSN RTOS is a multi-layered, modular, real-time operating system designed specifically for embedded microprocessors. It provides a complete multitasking environment based on open system standards. It is built around the JBOSN real-time multi-tasking nano-kernel and a modular collection of servers (window, network, file system, I/O, time, system and synchronization) and companion software components. Each server implements a logical collection of system services. To the application developer, the system service requests appear as re-entrant C functions callable from an application. Any combination of server and library components can be incorporated into a system to match its real-time design requirements.

Michel Le Lan, Atmel's Marketing Director for ASICs, commented, The JBOSN RTOS opens CAP(TM) to high-performance, real-time systems with tight memory constraints. With its clean application interface, and modular servers for all the requirements of real-time systems, it reduces the cost and shortens the development time of customer target systems.

Byoung-Oh Jung, CEO of IBOSN Systems, commented, The JBOSN RTOS supports device manager, filesystem, GUI tools using window system and network. JBOSN RTOS requires only a small memory for running, and provides a very quick response time. Because JBOSN RTOS is very light, the hardware requirement is also small, low power consumption can be achieved and low price of product can be achieved while getting the same functions. Especially, a GUI is very good for embedded systems.
