General Course Information:

Course Content

This lab will deepen the understanding of operating systems and strengthening of real-time topics.
Experiments include:

  • Processes and threads in operating systems
  • Device accesses
  • Real-time Operating System nxtOSEK
  • Resource management under Linux with Sched_EDF
  • MPEG-2


For each experiment, there will be a description with fundamental basics to understand the experiment.

Administrative Information

Registration for the lab will be open from October, 17th, 8 a.m. until October 24th, 8 a.m. Because of limited hardware resources, we will assign available places by first come first serve and send you an email after the registration period.

After each experiment, each group has to hand in a solution of the experiment questions in written form.

The five experiment topics will be covered by 7 appointments during the semester.

In the beginning of each appointment, the preparation tasks of the experiment topic will be tested. Without passing the tests, the experiments cannot be started and have to be repeated. Failing a test is only possible once. After a second failed test, the entire lab is failed and can be repeated in the next winter-semester.

After registration, you will get a login and password for the download section.

Please register for both appointments if both are suitable for you. We will choose the majority vote. Possible appointments are:

  • on Tuesdays: 13:00 – 17:00
  • on Wednesdays: 13:00 – 17:00
