Since most control systems software is hardware-related, real-time-oriented and complex, adaptable OSs which help program productivity and maintainability improvement are in strong demand. We are developing an adaptable and extensible OS based on micro-kernel and multi-server scheme: each server runs in a protected mode interacting only via messages, and could be added/extended/deleted easily. Since this OS is highly modularized, inter-process messaging overhead is a concern. Our implementation proved good efficiency and maintainability.
