Benefits of an RTOS on Portable Handheld Devices

A real time operating system (RTOS) is used in applications where time sensitive operations are required. Typically, these applications involve the collection and analysis of sensor data, or the control of critical equipment. This contrasts with the use of general purpose operating systems. A general purpose operating system (GPOS), such as Android, Linux, or Windows, […]
