Predictable response times and portable hard real-time systems with TRANS-RTXc on the Transputer
Authors: Verhulst, Eric, Thielemans, Hans
The transputer is a flexible processor, very well suited for applications where modularity and distributed operation are prime requirements, like in process control. Nevertheless, its basic FIFO-scheduling algorithm, makes its application for real-time processing quite difficult. This problem has now been solved by the development of a preemptive scheduling algorithm. This algorithm was used to port an existing real-time kernel to the Transputer. In addition, by taking account of the specific nature of the Transputer, much better performance and flexibility have been obtained.
