OS Support

Support for Operating Systems

Operating systems provide control and task management functions while speeding the development and bring-up of system software. Using OSKit porting technology, commercially available OS solutions are fully supported on application-optimized Cadence® Tensilica® Xtensa® configurations, accelerating system development and reducing schedule and technical risk.

Real-time operating systems available for Xtensa configurations include ThreadX from Express Logic, uC/OS II from Micrium, Nucleus Plus from Mentor Graphics, and ROSES from Tata Elxsi.

Tensilica DPUs can also use open-source Linux (see Xtensa Linux site).
