AllLinuxDevices: FSMLabs announces netBSD component for RTLinux

"FSMLabs, the RTLinux[tm] Company, announced today that its RTLinux operating system is now available with a NetBSD component. RTLinux is a high speed, efficient and small realtime kernel based on the POSIX 10003.13 PS51 specification. Using a patented dual-kernel design, RTLinux runs a general purpose OS as the lowest priority thread of the realtime kernel. As a result, realtime software components run in a predictable low latency environment. At the same time, developers still have access to the full power of the general purpose OS, including its applications and development tools. This greatly improves development efficiency and time-to-market for realtime applications. While standard RTLinux uses Linux as its general purpose OS, RTL/BSD uses NetBSD, providing the identical POSIX threads API and many of the same development tools."
