OSE Systems' real-time operating system (RTOS) is being ported to Agere Systems' StarPro 2000 digital signal processor (DSP). The extended product is due to be available in November. StarPro2000 is targeted for emerging communications applications, such as third generation (3G) wireless infrastructure. OSE for StarPro 2000 features shared memory and shared pools support. To save memory the OSE kernel executes within the shared memory subsystem of the device. The Board Support Package (BSP) for StarPro 2000 supports interrupts and timers and lets the user access peripherals such as I/O ports and Direct Memory Access (DMA) controllers via RTOS APIs. Device drivers for various interfaces used by the OSE link handler are also included together with a description on how to add drivers to the BSP concept.
OSE has also expanded its StarCore DSP core support with additional products designed for DSP and DSP/CPU development. The OSE RTOS' enhanced developmen t platform is built to facilitate design and development for multi-core, multi CPU/DSP heterogeneous embedded environments. The extended StarCore support is available now.
