To fulfill the demand on Linux in real-time applications esd supports PREEMPT_RT. PREEMPT_RT (also known as Linux with RT-patch) makes the standard Linux kernel suitable for real-time scenarios.
For application programmers PREEMPT_RT is the most simple approach because the typical Linux Posix API can be used. Only minimal care must be taken when going real-time.
- PREEMPT_RT enabled kernels for esd's embedded platforms and customized products
- Linux device drivers for esd's interface products that have been testet on PREEMPT_RT systems
