    Activities of the TRON Project in the past twelve years (1984-96) have produced a large amount of technical results which are published as papers, books, and reports. Because such publications of TRON are scattered among diverse journals, proceedings, technical reports, etc., it is difficult for the new TRON researchers and developers to discover relevant documents. The primary objective of the bi... View full abstract»

  • Prioritized inter-processor synchronization in an ITRON-MP implementation

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):48 - 57
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (840 KB)

    When a real-time kernel is implemented for shared-memory multiprocessors, there exists a requirement that a higher priority task should execute system calls faster. For this requirement, the inter-processor synchronization primitive, i.e. spin locks, should be prioritized. However, simple priority-ordered spin locks can cause uncontrolled priority inversions when they are used for nested spin lock... View full abstract»

    TRON is a project aimed at realizing “computing everywhere” environments (K. Sakamura, 1993). In the process of carrying out this project, we have come to realize the wide range of issues involved in bringing such an environment into being. In the early stages of the TRON Project we initiated fundamental projects for solving such technological issues, as well as application projects fo... View full abstract»

    In the last few years, software tools such as electronic mail and World Wide Web browsers have greatly increased productivity. The demand to take these tools out of the office through small, lightweight hand-held devices called personal digital assistants (PDAs) has been especially fervent. Manufacturers have had to scramble to supply this demand, but have run into problems with size, weight, batt... View full abstract»
