NEC Electronics GmbH, NEC Electronics Inc. and OSE Systems Inc. have announced the availability of the OSE real-time operating system (RTOS) for NEC Electronics' System-on-Chip Lite (SoCLite), ARM7TDMI-based customizable controller and SoC design platform.

OSE for NEC's ARM7TDMI-based SoCLite is a full-featured, small-footprint, real-time kernel that is suitable for resource constrained SoC designs. The RTOS, integrated with NEC SoCLite, provides designers with a cost-effective hardware design the enables high functionality for low-to-middle volume applications such as consumer, automotive, communication and automation, the companies claim.

SoCLite is NEC's platform for developing customized controllers based on ARM7TDMI 32-bit CPU core for low-to-mid-volume, cost sensitive applications. It allows customers to randomly implement application-specific functionality with an already predesigned and preverified ARM7TDMI-based microcontroller subsystem in one single device by using easy ASIC design implementation methodology. The integration is supported by a comprehensive FPGA-based development board that allows verification of the final device's functionality and early software development prior to manufacturing.

The companies add that the availability of the OSE RTOS for SoCLite allows optimum utilization of the relatively tight resources in system solutions where a small footprint for the operating system is a must.

The OSE development license for the NEC SoCLite kernel and board support package is quoted at $8,000 in the United States.
