- eXtreme Minimal Kernel
- A free Real Time Operating System for Microcontrollers
eXtreme Minimal Kernel is a preemptive multithreaded real-time
operating system for microcontrollers. XMK's primary design goal is
to be small, extremely small, without sacrificing performance
or functionality. XMK's minimal footprint makes it ideal for
running on 8bit microcontrollers, while its feature content makes it
a excellent choice for 16bit and 32bit microcontrollers.
XMK is 100% configurable, from a no frills thread scheduler
to a full featured RTOS with TCP/IP networking.
