Real-Time Linux* with Xenomai* on Intel® Multi-Core Processors

The white paper describes how Xenomai* can be configured on Intel® multi-core processors to achieve hard real-time capabilities in Linux*.

Linux* is not a hard real-time operating system because it does not guarantee a task to meet strict deadlines. The kernel can suspend a task when its time slice has completed and it can remain suspended for an arbitrarily long time. Some of the hard real-time approaches that can be applied to Linux* are micro-kernel and nano-kernel. The document covers a similar approach using Xenomai*, which runs the hardware and standard Linux* while normal Linux* processes are suspended.
