RTX51 Real-Time Kernel

RTX51 Kernel Overview RTX51 is a real-time kernel for the 8051 family of microcontrollers that is designed to solve two problems common to embedded programs.

  1. Multitasking: several operations must execute simultaneously.
  2. Real-time control: operations must execute within a defined period of time.

These operations are organized as independent computer processes that are referred to as tasks.

While it is possible to implement an embedded program without using a real-time kernel, a well-established, proven kernel, like RTX51, saves time and makes software development easier.
