RTOS for IoT - Scorpius
Multi-task real-time OS for small embedded devices
Scorpius is an ITRON-like real-time operating system.
High-speed task scheduling is provided with a mall-code footprint, making this operating system perfect for the needs below.
- Multi-tasking on small embedded devices such as IOT devices where code size and memory limitations are critical
- High-speed task switching even with a low performance CPU
- Implementation of a multi-tasking environment without high-level OS expertise
- Implementation of power saving functions that are essential for IoT devices
- Implementation of a security function on IoT device
- Monitoring of internal system operations including task transitions.
- Future-proofing to allow software expansion and execution analysis

Example Task Transition Display Using TraceLogVisualizer
(Note 1) Measured time required for dispatch processing (task context switching) at Cortex-M3/80 MHz operation.
(Note 2) Compilation result for ARM7 core using Macnica environment.
(Note 3) Memory area size required for every additional task.
(Note 4) In the case of typical commercially available RTOS supporting similar CPUs, task dispatch time is around 5 us at 60 MHz
(Note 5) Kernel can be created with minimum required functions only.
(Note 6) Support planned in near future.
(Note 7) Refer to http://www.toppers.jp/en/index.html
(Note 8) Trace log function may change overall system processing order.
(Note 9) Requires implementation of a timer function.
(Note 10) Displays execution time including the trace log function code.
