Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.
While other component technologies exist for embedded systems, RTSC is unique in that it scales down to highly resource constrained embedded systems including DSPs and 16-bit micro-controllers. In addition, RTSC components have a "dual existance": in addition to embedded target code, they include code that executes on a rich client platform to help manage the component's entire lifecycle - from building the component to monitoring the real-time operation of the component within a deployed application. This dual existance enables RTSC components to fully leverage Eclipse infrastructure without incurring overhead on the embedded platform.
The starting point for the RTSC project will include the XDCtools currently available from Texas Instruments as a free download. By making these tools freely and openly available, we hope to foster deeper levels of integration with the Eclipse platform, encourage adoption of RTSC by eliminating the understandable fears of proprietary ties to Texas Instruments, and bring modern component-based development tools to the embedded C programmer.
