Home of HiDEOS
HiDEOS is a software package designed to be used for development of
communicating tasks in an embedded systems application environment.
The initial target for this development is the Motorola MVME162 board.
The reason for this choice is because of the Industry Pack Bus available
on the MVME162. The package contains a preemptive, multitasking kernel and
an object oriented task model with message passing support. The board
support is also object oriented with classes to easily manage the Industry
Pack bus. HiDEOS comes with several drivers for serial, ADC, and GPIB
Industry Packs. A VME backplane driver is included for
communications with other processors along with an interface library for
other software packages to communicate with HiDEOS.
An important attribute of this package is
the ability to run the MVME162 without an additional operating system,
and communiate with other boards in a VME crate.
The Motorola MVME162 is a VME embedded controller which operates similar to
the MVME167. The MVME162 has a four slot Industry Pack bus on it. The
Industry Pack boards (typically about 4"x2") plug directly onto the MVME162.
Communications with Industry Pack boards usually come out of the front
panel through a 50 pin ribbon cables (one per Industry Pack). Industry Packs
are available to perform many different functions. Important Industry Packs
for the EPICS community are the 2, 4, and 8 port RS232/RS422/RS485 serial
communications interface and GPIB. The MVME162 has a 68040 CPU.
These are the documents that are currently available concerning HiDEOS.
Here is all the files needed to compile and run HiDEOS standalone on a MVME162.
The first two items are HiDEOS, the GNU stuff is here are convenience.
Download whatever you need. As you probably know, the gcc and binutils are
fairly large. All files are GNU zip tar format, the WWW browser may automatically
unzip the file for you.
HiDEOS Executables Only

This is a new product. All the documentation is new and probably incomplete,
please send me mail telling me what you like or do not like about it.
