ETS Overview

ETS is the optimal real-time operating system for devices based on the Intel x86 architecture. ETS delivers ease of use, predictable performance and unmatched dependability in thousands of demanding environments including: multi-media streaming solutions, sub-micron scanning systems, ocean vessel location systems and RFID products.

ETS is a high-performance micro-kernel real-time operating system with an optimal operational footprint of 88K. Developers can install, configure and start developing on ETS very quickly.

Because ETS was designed as a Win32 API compliant operating system, all the standard Windows conventions are maintained. This includes APIs, memory management, mutexes and semaphores that Windows developers are accustomed to using.

In addition to performance, ETS simplifies development through extensive use of tools designed and optimized to present comprehensive and detailed information to the software engineer to quickly and accurately resolve issues as they arise during the development process.
