  Real-time operating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An RTOS facilitates the creation of real-time systems, but does not guarantee that they are real-time; this requires correct development of the system level software.
That is, an RTOS is valued more for how quickly it can respond to an event than for the total amount of work it can do.
Key factors in evaluating an RTOS are therefore maximal interrupt and thread latency.

The Rochester Theater Organ Society (RTOS) was formed in 1964 to preserve theater pipe organs for the residents of Rochester and the surrounding areas in upstate New York.
RTOS is an independent organization incorporated by the state of New York as a not-for-profit educational institution.
RTOS was originally formed to rescue a Wurlitzer 4/21 (opus 1951) from the luxurious downtown RKO Palace Theater, just before that 1928 2916-seat luxurious movie house fell to the wrecking ball of urban renewal.

 Selecting an RTOS: Is It Source or Object Code? | RTC Magazine
From the beginning of commercial RTOS availability, the RTOS has been rightly considered to be a component in the target application just the same as any capacitor, resistor or connector.
Thus was born the notion of a royalty for the RTOS component.
Nevertheless, the concepts of the RTOS as a component and a royalty fee for deploying it survived.

And in that case, the RTOS has to deal with the compiler-specific simulated stacks, as well as the 8051 SP.
Bringing use of the '51 to the level of needing a RTOS usually is a matter of reluctance to switch processors.

 Open Source Software for Real-Time Solutions | Linux Journal
Cygnus decided it was simpler to start from scratch and build an RTOS for embedded applications than it would be to strip unnecessary components from Linux to produce an RTOS suitable for embedded projects.
An RTOS suitable for embedding in applications where lives are at stake, such as automobile brakes or pacemakers, must be provably reliable.
Similarly, if your RTOS is not efficient and requires more cycles than another RTOS to do the same job, then even if it meets your real-time constraints, it may still blow your power budget.

 OS Fingerprinting through RTOs
By measuring the behavior of various operating systems' TCP retransmission timeout lengths (or RTOs), it is possible to distinguish between OSes on a network.
This is what makes RTO measuring stand out from other means of guessing OSes, since it is both efficient and difficult to detect.
As for everyone else, the most direct way to defend against this exposure would be for vendors to reimplement their TCP stacks and force the RTO to conform to some uniform standard.

 Get by Without an RTOS
It seems to me that often the main reason behind a decision to port an RTOS where it is unnecessary is the lack of understanding that by using some simple means and some not-so-complex code, an efficient, fast, and reasonably balanced system can be built.
Moreover, should an RTOS be required some time in the future, this is no longer a painful exercise, as the system can be engineered as self-contained tasks, even in the absence of a "true" RTOS.
Unfortunately, the point where a proper RTOS becomes more of an aid than an impediment is hard to define and depends on the specific system.

 RTOS Selection Guide - real-time operating system, criteria, latency
In the ideal case, their worst-case performance is well understood and documented.
To earn the distinctive title "Real-Time Operating System" (RTOS), an operating system should be deterministic and have guaranteed worst-case interrupt latency and context-switch times.
Given these characteristics and the relative priorities of the tasks and interrupts in your system, it is possible to analyze the worst-case performance of the software using a technique such as rate monotonic analysis.

 RTOS Modeling for System Level Design   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
While real time operating systems (RTOS) are an increasingly important component in system design, specific RTOS implementations can not be used directly in high level models.
In this paper we propose a RTOS model built on top of existing SLDLs which, by providing the key features typically available in any RTOS, allows the designer to model the dynamic behavior of multi-tasking systems at higher abstraction levels to be incorporated into existing design flows.
Experimental result shows that our RTOS model is easy to use and efficient while being able to provide accurate results.
