Testing farm pushes real-time Linux into the mainstream

"OSADL, which has been overseeing real-time Linux (RTL) development patches to the Linux kernel, announced a "quality assurance testing farm" where manufacturers can test a variety of RTL systems under simulated production conditions. The multi-platform test center aims to prove RTL as a capable, and more flexible, alternative to real-time operating systems (RTOSes).

"OSADL (Open Source Automation Development Lab) coordinates the development of open source projects in the areas of embedded and industrial design, including projects focused on real-time and safety critical Linux, I/O framework, real-time Ethernet, and special automation-related drivers for the Linux kernel. In May of this year, OSADL became a Silver member of the Linux Foundation.

"Since its merger with the Real-Time Linux Foundation (RTLF) early last year, OSADL has also regularly released "Latest Stable" industrial real-time Linux kernels based on its PREEMPT_RT patch series. In February, OSADL released Kernel 2.6.31.12-rt21, based on Linux 2.6.31, which is still recommended by OSADL as the latest stable version."
