This manual describes the TI SYS/BIOS Real-time Operating System, which is also called "SYS/BIOS". The latest version number as of the publication of this manual is SYS/BIOS 6.34. Versions of SYS/BIOS prior to 6.30 were called DSP/BIOS. The new name reflects that this operating system can also be use on processors other than DSPs.
SYS/BIOS gives developers of mainstream applications on Texas Instruments devices the ability to develop embedded real-time software. SYS/BIOS provides a small firmware real-time library and easy-to-use tools for real-time tracing and analysis.
