Part Seven - Special-Purpose Systems > CHAPTER 19 - Real-Time Systems

CHAPTER 19
Real-Time Systems
 
 
Our coverage of operating-system issues thus far has focused mainly on general-purpose computing systems (for example, desktop and server systems). We now turn our attention to real-time computing systems. The requirements of real-time systems differ from those of many of the systems we have described, largely because real-time systems must produce results within certain time limits. In this chapter, we provide an overview of real-time computer systems and describe how real-time operating systems must be constructed to meet the stringent timing requirements of these systems.
