eCos® is the premier open source real-time operating system. A mature and robust system, it has many design wins to its credit in a diverse range of market segments including industrial automation, consumer electronics, telematics, aerospace, multimedia and telecommunications. eCos is one of the major players in the fragmented embedded OS market with a market usage of around 5-6% according to CMP’s Embedded Study 2007, and EDC’s Embedded Development Survey 2007. Examples of products that incorporate eCos include the Sony PlayStation 3, Sirius satellite radios, Netgear routers, the Raytheon Patriot missile system, Samsung LCD TVs, the ESA SSETI Express satellite, Trimble GPSs, and Compellent SANs.
eCosPro® is targeted at professional developers looking to integrate eCos within commercial products. Out of the box, eCosPro includes all the tools and runtime functionality necessary for general embedded applications.
A supporting cast of optional middleware packages provides additional features such as USB OTG/host/device support, graphical user interfaces, in-memory databases, Java virtual machines, CAN bus, multi-media filesystems, and so on.
