OSADL: Realtime Linux for the Atom Processor

Oct 16, 2008

OSADL, a consortium of Linux users in the automation industry, has released a realtime Linux kernel for Intel's Atom processor.

The Open Source Automation Development Lab (OSADL) thereby continued its work on its existing RT-Preempt realtime patch for Kernel 2.6.24 that it released in July. The developers have tried to stay as close as possible to Linus Torvalds's mainline Kernel.

The resulting Kernel was successfully tested on Intel's Crown Beach evaluation board and Kontron's microETCpress SP module, with other board testing to follow.

An OSADL webpage provides an overview of the supported features and the available download of the patch.
