Abstract:

The microprocessor revolution has produced a capable computer on a single printed circuit board. The design and development of a real-time operating system for a distributed system of Single Board Computers is presented in this paper. There are user manuals and program descriptions for the operating system, a debug module, a CRT module and a line printer module. The operating systems has been developed for a Multibus system with three INTEL Single Board Computers SBC8020-4 and 64K bytes of common memory. The system has been designed specifically for Naval Tactical Data Systems applications and the feasibility of such applications are evaluated with respect to currently available Single Board Computers and with respect to Single Board Computers that should be available in the near future.
