The static real-time operating system EUROStime (Time-Triggered Operating System OSEK) belongs to the family of OSEK real-time operating systems that were developed specifically for automotive applications. In contrast to the task model of a conventional OSEK operating system like EUROSmot , the activation of an EUROStime task is done periodically based on a time-controlled allocation table. In addition, the EUROStime tasks are subjected to a so-called deadline, i.e. after reaching a predefined point in time the execution of the task will be aborted.
Both operating systems EUROSmot and EUROStime can be used in combination, in which the EUROSmot acts as a subsystem under EUROStime.
EUROStime adhere to the OSEKtime API (Application Programming Interface). Applications can be created easily using a configurator, which also provides a consistency check and OIL (OSEK Implementation Language) support.
