Introducing MediaLinux — a new Real-Time Linux Approach

Last week, Softier made news with one of the first native ports of Linux to a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) architecture, introducing its “MediaLinux” and “MediaBIOS” for TI’s DM64x DSP platform.In this article, Softier CTO Eatamar Drory and Senior Programmer Or Sagi discuss the unique approach to real-time processing that enables MediaLinux to run existing TI DSP algorithms untouched within the context of real time processes. Added benefits to this design include predictable scheduling and short interrupt latency.

The article discusses key architectural points of the MediaLinux approach in comparison with two well-known alternatives. Read full whitepaper.
