Attendees Will Learn Optimal Methods for Meeting Hard and Soft Real-Time Deadlines

GERMANTOWN, Maryland – Dec. 15, 2016 – On January 10, 2017, Barr Group, The Embedded Systems Experts® will host a free one-hour embedded systems design webinar, “How to Prioritize RTOS Tasks (and Why it Matters)”. Presented by Barr Group Principal Engineer Salomon Singer, this live webinar will examine best practices for assigning fixed priorities to a set of real-time operating systems (RTOS) tasks and interrupt service routines (ISRs). The webinar will begin at 1:00 p.m. (EST) with a Q&A session following the presentation.

"When a real-time operating system is used without assigning task priorities appropriately, only one task (or, more commonly, ISR) may be guaranteed to meet all of its deadlines. This can cause systems to become unreliable and potentially dangerous,” said Andrew Girson, CEO of Barr Group. “By educating engineers in the embedded space on how to create more robust systems, we hope to enable these engineers to create safer embedded and IoT devices.”

Webinar attendees will learn how and why to use optimal methods to allow a critical set of tasks and interrupt service routines to meet all of their deadlines – even during transient overload periods. Such methods for priority assignment enable sophisticated embedded software systems to meet hard and soft real-time task deadlines. Webinar attendees can apply content from this presentation to the development of any priority-based preemptive RTOS, including real-time Linux.
