RTOS?

Started by Surya February 21, 2007
I am developing an FPGA application which works in series with a main
processor which is running an RTOS(VxWorks). Since my inputs and
outputs are to and from that processor, should i be using any RTOS?

Kindly clarify. thanks in advance.

Regards
Surya.

That depends on factors besides the FPGA. A possible impact is the maximum latency to service an I/O request, which an RTOS could make better or worse. -- Thad

Only the person who is writing the application code can decided whether it would benefit from using an RTOS. So you tell us, will you benefit from an RTOS? -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! Yow! Is my fallout at shelter termite proof? visi.com
