The eCos RTOS and RedBoot bootloader have been used in a wide variety of market segments and products. From high volume consumer appliances where the emphasis is on minimizing licensing costs and hardware resource requirements, to low volume semi-custom designs where simplicity and flexibility are the most important considerations, and everything inbetween.
In the fragmented embedded operating systems market eCos is one of the major players, with global market usage of around 5-6% according to multiple surveys.
If you have developed, or know of a new product that uses eCos or RedBoot, please stop by at our stand, or email us and let us know.
