Designing safe and predictable software for
embedded applications is a considerable challenge,
which has been addressed by the COMDES-II
framework. This is a component-based software
framework employing a timed multitasking model of
computation supported by a run-time environment.
This paper presents a real-time kernel implementing
the run-time environment - the HARTEXμ kernel that
has been specifically developed for COMDES-II
systems. The design and implementation of the kernel
take into account the limitations of embedded systems,
e.g. a small memory footprint and reduced kernel
overhead. It also features Boolean vector processing
that eliminates the need for linked-list queues,
resulting in constant execution time of kernel functions
independent of the number of tasks involved.
