With the surging popularity of the Internet of Things, you may have heard a lot of talk about RTOS’s. But what are they, exactly?. Given below difference between RTOS and GPOS. RTOS – Real time operating system. it is dedicated to a single work; flat memory model. In a GPOS, the scheduler typically uses a fairness policy to dispatch threads and processes onto the CPU. Such a policy enables the high overall throughput.

Google it, Mars Path finder robot has this problem. How RTOS are deterministic? So RTOS interrupt handling mechanism should take of above points. Nice article, really helpful. A GPOS being too heavy demands very high end hardware configurations. Betwen story What is Kernel?

Q43 Write a C program to reverse odd bits or even bits of an integer. After pressing the SAVE button of a finished document, there is no particular time limit that the doc should be saved within 5 seconds. For example, the scheduler used in a multi user operating system such as Unix will ensure each user gets a fair amount of the processing time.

Task Scheduling Lets take the case of task scheduling first. In General, the more the number of threads the more time GPOS takes to schedule and start executing the the thread. Traditional real time schedulers, such as the scheduler used in FreeRTOS, achieve determinism by allowing the user to assign a priority to each thread of execution.

It means, say temperature sensor says, initiate the cooling process. A GPOS is made for high end, general purpose systems like a personal computer, a work station, a server system etc. Rtox flow detector circuit. In such a case, some times execution of a high priority process will get delayed inorder to serve 5 or 6 low priority tasks. We can also say an RTOS is supposed to give quick and predictable response.


Here a high priority process gets executed over the low priority ones. RTOS must handle this. Notify fpos of follow-up comments by email. Real-time operating systems are often required in small embedded operating systems that are packaged as part of micro devices. Those posts will tell more detailed concepts of RTOS.

Differences between a GPOS (Normal OS) and an RTOS (Real Time OS)

I had read a lots of articles to compose this material. Each program running is represented by a process in the operating system. It is economical to port an RTOS to an embedded system of limited expectations and functionalities Example: If we go even beyond there are many many points to discuss, but it is not in the scope of this article. So preemptive kernel is must.

This is how embedded system works. This may cause jitters in RTOS env. An RTOS has an advanced algorithm for scheduling. Process the high priority interrupt first.

GPOS is programmed to handle scheduling in such a way that it manages to achieve high throughput. The central processing unit CPU of the computer can be used by only one program at a time.

After a interrupt occurs following action are taken by OS. All it tells is, the Algorithms of ROTS kernel should be deterministic and should be able to sifference even if no of resources are more. Many Embedded interviewer ask this question.


What is the main difference between GPOS and RTOS?

Here throughput means — the total number of processes that complete their execution per unit time. That’s kind of recommended approach. Some vendors have even introduced a dual kernel betwen — which has one kernel to serve for GPOS and another kernel to serve for real time systems. Some real-time operating systems are created for a special application and others are more general purpose. Email required Address never made public.

After a interrupt occurs following action are taken by Diffeernce a Interrupt intiated b A interrupt handler is found c Interrupt is handled d Makes the task runnable e Task is scheduled f Task, yeah dears actual RTOS task runs here.

In this type of interrupt handling all other interrupts are masked.

But it gives no gaurntee that the high priroirty thread will be given preference to the lower priority one. Consequently, a high-priority user thread can never preempt a kernel call, but must wait for the entier call to complete, even if the call was invoked by the lowerest priority proecess. How RTOS are deterministic? Notify me of new posts by email.

High throughput is achieved by serving 5 low priority tasks than by serving a single high priority one.
