Abstract:
Presented in this thesis is the design and implementation of a fast, compact, and flexible multi-tasking operating system. This system is designed for use in small computers which must deliver real-time performance in extremely constrained environments. The operating system is implemented in the "C" language to allow portability between different computers systems. A number of useful features are provided which support dynamic task management, message passing, a hierarchial file system, device drivers, and a command line interpreter. Modularized construction enables the user to prune unnecessary system features for specific applications. Presently, the system is operational on a personal computer which is also used for system development. This serves as a realistic environment for testing system response to real-time events.
