Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"OnCore Systems Corporation, developer of the OnCore Systems Software Foundation, the most powerful embedded OS of its kind, today released a companion open source operating system product to meet the needs of digital avionics manufacturers requiring RTCA / EUROCAE DO-178B certification."

"MicroC/OS-II is a real-time operating system (RTOS) developed by Jean Labrosse, an embedded systems pioneer in open source software. His book, "MicroC/OS-II, The Real-Time Kernel" (ISBN 0-87930-543-6), has been widely sold and used as a valuable reference source by embedded engineers in over 45 countries. The MicroC/OS-II offering contains all of the services that one would expect from an industrial-strength, preemptive RTOS: semaphores, message mailboxes, message queues, event flags, interrupts, time delays and more. Each system call is fully described in detail in his book, and is published with a companion CD containing all of Labrosse's meticulously coded software modules. MicroC/OS-II has been ported to over 30 microprocessors."

"OnCore partnered with Jean Labrosse's Micrium and Validated Software to create a full certification package of source code, build files and requirements, design, test and integration documentation to meet all requirements of avionics manufacturers seeking to obtain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) RTCA/EUROCAE DO-178B certification. This certification package will support the industry's highest Level A certification."
