OS Changer POSIX Porting Kit – Advantages

  • Allows you to easily move your Linux applications to the any proprietary or non-proprietary RTOS while saving you time and money.
  • Makes legacy Linux applications productive to the enterprise by allowing them to be developed and tested on host platforms without a need for the target hardware.
  • Improves the target OS by allowing additional features that are part of the Linux application to continue to be supported by the target RTOS.
  • Can also be used as a virtualized test-bench platform for performing system integration testing of your applications on host PC that provides development flexibility and huge cost savings.
  • Enables Host based simulation, testing embedded and/or time critical applications
  • Application is connected effectively at the source code level
  • Offers permanent portability solutions that actually get your Linux code to move to any proprietary or non-proprietary RTOS and its variants
  • Flexible, easy to maintain and better migration to a unified OS architecture allowing you to migrate again and again.
  • Reduced time, provides 80-90% portability requiring little code re-write on Hardware and Device Driver specific code
  • Supports multi Process, 32/64 Bit architecture, UMP/SMP muti-processor
  • Advanced thread pooling, Tiered memory pools & Tiered Shared Memory Pools features


OS Changer® takes advantage of OS Abstractor® Interface which provides OS Agnostic API’s and optimization benefits:

  • Statically create and reuse control objects from pool
  • Statically create and reuse threads from pool
  • Enhance performance without breaking OS API compliance
  • Configure target environment and resource requirements for various OS version and variants
  • Use OS Abstractor’s ability to recover from software fatal errors through a soft reset
  • Use same Interface APIs within and across individual application processes
  • API Optimization and Profiling
