Application Binary Interface
Family or class of processor based around a common instruction set. RTEMS architectures follow the GCC architecture model as RTEMS needs an GCC architecture compiler for each support RTEMS architecture.
Arbitrary Processor Affinity
Application Programming Interface
GNU Binary Utilities such as the assembler
ldand a range of other tools used in the development of software.
Board Support Package is a specific configuration RTEMS can be built for. An RTEMS install process installs specific library and headers files for a single BSP. A BSP optimises RTEMS to a specific target hardware.
A continuous inteagration build server.
A compiler built to run on a Host that generate code for another architecture.
Dynamically Linker Library used on Windows.
Earliest Deadline First
File Allocation Table
Fast User-Space Locking
In-Memory File System
Journalling Flash File System version 2
GNU Compiler Collection
GNU’s Not Unix
The computer and operating system that hosts the RTEMS development tools such as the compiler, linker and debugger.
Minimal GNU system for Windows that lets GCC built programs use the standard Windows operating system DLLs. It lets you build native Windows programs with the GNU GCC compiler.
Minimal GNU system for 64bit Windows. MinGW64 is not the MinGW project.
Multiprocessor Resource-Sharing Protocol
Minimal System 2 is a fork of the MinGW project’s MSYS tool and the MinGW MSYS tool is a fork of Cygwin project. The Cygwin project provides a POSIX emulation layer for Windows so POSIX software can run on Windows. MSYS is a minimal version that is just enough to let
configurescripts run. MSYS has a simplified path structure to make it easier to building native Windows programs.
Network File System version 2
\(O(m)\) Independence-Preserving Protocol
Portable Operating System Interface is a standard that lets software be portable between compliant operating systems.
A path used when building a package so all parts of the package reside under that path.
RTEMS File System
RTEMS Source Builder is part of the RTEMS Tools Project. It builds packages such as the tools for the RTEMS operating system.
The Real-Time Executive for Multiprocessor Systems or RTEMS is an open source fully featured Real Time Operating System or RTOS that supports a variety of open standard application programming interfaces (API) and interface standards such as POSIX and BSD sockets.
A target is the hardware or simulator a BSP built executable runs on.
- Test Suite
RTEMS test suite located in the
Waf build system. For more information see http://www.waf.io/
