目錄

Embedded operating systems are rapidly evolving to support the growing performance and functionality requirements for both traditional and connected device classes across industries. Embedded software has emerged as a primary vehicle through which engineering organizations can provide more value, increase differentiation, and control end-user experiences. This report analyzes emerging trends for commercially available real-time and non-real-time operating systems and other related bundled products and services used in embedded systems.

What questions are addressed ?

  • How is open source software influencing the commercial markets for Linux and traditional real-time operating systems?
  • What OS markets will see the highest growth over the next several years?
  • What impact will the Internet of Things have on embedded OS offerings?
  • Is Android seeing strong adoption in embedded verticals beyond mobile devices?
  • How are Linux vendors differentiating their solutions?
  • Where should OS providers pool their investments for supporting software development and tooling?
  • Why are more users migrating to commercial OS solutions from in-house, roll-your-own systems?
  • How should vendors react to the expanding OS offerings of semiconductor suppliers and other non-traditional embedded software players?

Executive Summary

The Internet of Things is transforming the embedded/real-time operating systems space with new connected device classes, stricter application requirements, and opportunities for new business models and fruitful ecosystem relationships. The landscape and its vendors are challenged by growing competition produced by both traditional and unconventional sources, such as semiconductor providers. Embedded OS suppliers must rapidly adapt their commercial, Linux, and open source OSs to support secure connectivity while expanding their software development and middleware offerings and relevant engineering services.

Did You Know?

The software stack is the primary means for enabling embedded differentiation, delivering over-the-top value, and controlling end user experiences, which is especially crucial for OS vendors.

Key Findings

  • The global market for embedded/real-time OSs will grow at a 3-year CAGR of X.X% through 2016 to amount to more than $X.XB.
  • Global shipments of embedded open source/freely available OSs totaled more than 3.7 times the shipments for commercial OSs in 2013.
  • The IoT will help drive embedded OS market growth in both leading vertical markets such as industrial automation and emerging industries like medical devices and retail automation.
  • Virtualization and hypervisor technologies are widely supported and supplied by leading vendors such as Green Hills Software, Microsoft, and Wind River.
  • Microsoft and Wind River account for more than half of global embedded/real-time OS market revenues in 2013.
  • Reliability/stability, real-time capabilities/performance, and the availability of development tools are the leading criteria for embedded OS selection for embedded engineers on current projects.

Five-Year Forecast: IoT is a Growth Direction

The markets for embedded/real-time OSs are seeing new opportunities for growth and expansion through the rapidly developing Internet of Things (IoT). In 2013, the markets for traditional real-time OSs, embedded Linux, and other OSs amounted to approximately $XXX.XM, $XXX.XM, and $XXX.XM, respectively. The IoT enables the creation of new business models, licensing opportunities, and partnerships to increase revenues for embedded and enterprise software vendors across industries. These new connected device classes are supported by a wide variety of intelligent applications and services. At the core of each connected device, IoT node, intelligent gateway, and piece of IT infrastructure is a progressively more sophisticated embedded operating system that is often part of a larger solution/system architecture. As a result, the IoT will completely redefine the landscape for traditional embedded OSs and drive growth opportunities and embedded requirements for the next several years.

For engineers across vertical markets, the OS is the core of much more complex and difficult-to-design IoT and embedded systems, putting software support at a premium. OEMs are faced with a wide variety of challenges such as enabling connectivity and integrating with third-party services in addition to more-traditional challenges of producing new features and decreasing project schedules and budgets. Embedded/real-time OS vendors are now required to provide much more of the software stack in addition to supplying/supporting a variety of development tools/environments; they must facilitate complete solution development while enabling OEMs to differentiate their solutions. Embedded software has gradually emerged as the primary vehicle through which engineering organizations could differentiate their products and control end-user experiences.

The IoT is also driving the use of open source OSs and the need for open frameworks and interoperability/integration. A wide variety of open source IoT software frameworks and tools continues to emerge from the likes of Eclipse, DeviceHive, AllJoyn from Qualcomm with the AllSeen Alliance, and more. Linux, in particular, continues to grow its developer base and support from leading vendors and is the primary operating system for new connected device classes such as IoT gateways. Android saw more than 600 million unit shipments for mobile consumer devices in 2013 and continues to see strong traction in applications such as connected car systems, medical devices, and military communication devices (much to the expense of Windows CE/Compact). Android will benefit from the IoT with its integrated connectivity, vast developer community, and royalty-free licensing model.

The landscape for small-footprint, real-time OSs is changing. A variety of market factors - including the continued adoption of FreeRTOS and new offerings from non-traditional semiconductor suppliers (e.g. ARM, Freescale, Intel) - are pressuring vendors with low-footprint offerings such as CMX, Express Logic, and Micrium. Real-time capabilities/performance remain top of mind for many engineers of current embedded projects, and we expect RTOSs to absorb much adoption from no-OS systems, particularly as larger OS vendors push toward smaller device footprints with their generally broader portfolios of software, middleware, tools, and professional services.

Virtualization continues to be a major technology offered by leading OS vendors for enabling OEMs and service providers to save money through consolidating and controlling hardware resources. Use cases and developer familiarity/expertise continue grow in parallel with the addition of solutions to OS vendor portfolios. Just recently, QNX Software Systems announced its QNX Hypervisor 1.0, a real-time type-1 hypervisor for a variety of applications. QNX's main objective is to consolidate multiple OSs onto a single system-on-chip (SoC) or platform and simplify the certification process for safety-critical systems. The top four leading vendors of embedded/real-time OSs now support virtualization technology. Virtualization's future as a standalone solution is uncertain, but it presents embedded OS vendors an opportunity to provide support and value for engineers tackling progressively challenging and regulated embedded designs with complex multicore hardware architectures.
