Projects / eCos


eCos (Embedded Configurable OS) is an open source, configurable, portable, and royalty-free embedded Real Time Operating System. It is written in C++, provides all the usual OS things. You configure the OS so that the parts you don't need aren't loaded to the embedded system. eCos is released under a modified GPL that allows for its use in embedded systems without having to GPL the embedded application.
