"RTLinux is the solution for the growing Asian embedded systems market which requires true real-time processing," said Turbolinux Systems CEO Michael Bae.

RTLinux/Pro is a robust, commercial "hard" real-time processing application that runs concurrently with Linux and BSD operating systems. It employs a patented dual kernel technique that allows time-sensitive processes to cooperate with but preempt general purpose applications within complex computing environments. RTLinux is already a core technology solution for Industrial Automation, Communications, and Instrumentation companies that require controlled and dependable hard real-time processing.
