-Introduction
-============
-
-In multiprocessor real-time systems, new requirements, such as sharing data and
-global resources between processors, are introduced. This requires an
-efficient and reliable communications vehicle which allows all processors to
-communicate with each other as necessary. In addition, the ramifications of
-multiple processors affect each and every characteristic of a real-time system,
-almost always making them more complicated.
-
-RTEMS addresses these issues by providing simple and flexible real-time
-multiprocessing capabilities. The executive easily lends itself to both
-tightly-coupled and loosely-coupled configurations of the target system
-hardware. In addition, RTEMS supports systems composed of both homogeneous and
-heterogeneous mixtures of processors and target boards.
-
-A major design goal of the RTEMS executive was to transcend the physical
-boundaries of the target hardware configuration. This goal is achieved by
-presenting the application software with a logical view of the target system
-where the boundaries between processor nodes are transparent. As a result, the
-application developer may designate objects such as tasks, queues, events,
-signals, semaphores, and memory blocks as global objects. These global objects
-may then be accessed by any task regardless of the physical location of the
-object and the accessing task. RTEMS automatically determines that the object
-being accessed resides on another processor and performs the actions required
-to access the desired object. Simply stated, RTEMS allows the entire system,
-both hardware and software, to be viewed logically as a single system.
