Sierra is the Real-Time Operating System implemented in hardware with a small SW interface. It is a full featured RTK that supports standard function as semafores, delay etc.. More information about Sierra in general can be found at http://www.agstu.com/
An experimental version of Sierra can be free downloaded to any Intel (Altera) FPGA Devices.
Complete OS or Real-Time Kernel A unique solution, implemented in hardware, which use the mass parallelism in hardware. Scheduler, time queues etc. in hardware.
Shorten Time-to-market Easy system integration, reduce development costs, simple memory mapped bus interface
Tiny footprint in memory With a user-friendly application programmers interface in C. The SW footprint is very small since the functionality is placed in hardware.
Enhanced performance and security Simplifies real-time analyze and behaviorally safe in hardware. Automatic deadline control under run time.
Time predictable and performance enhancing The most kernel calls to Sierras takes 1-4 bus cycles to execute and response time is predictable. No clock tick administration overhead.
Flexible and new possibilities Simple to add on new advanced functions to Sierra framework.
