Traditionally, microcontrollers are used for systems with deterministic real-time response. With the increasing need for higher performance, exciting UI and high-speed connectivity in end-products, many system designers are inclined to use application processors or SoCs with a feature-rich OS, a combination that may compromise real-time response. In this blog post, we present three approaches to add real-time behaviour in SoC-based designs.
