After a brief introduction and overview of the RTSC component model, this interactive tutorial will show you how to create RTSC components that fully leverage the RTSC infrastructure while at the same time reusing an existing C/C++ code base. Through a series of graduated examples, you'll learn how to incrementally migrate an existing C/C++ code base into one or more RTSC components. At each stage, as more and more of the RTSC framework is leveraged, the component user is provided with greater flexibility in "tuning" the components for a specific application and greater visibility into their operation within an application.
This session is suited for RTSC beginners, no previous knowledge of RTSC is required. However, you should have basic knowledge of the Eclipse CDT development environment. After this tutorial, you will have created several RTSC components, deployed and integrated them into an application which is built to run both natively on your eclipse development host as well as an embedded system.
Bob Frankel has recently retired from Texas Instruments after a long and productive tour of duty spanning three decades. Besides serving as one of the earliest advocates for leveraging the Eclipse/CDT framework as the backbone for TI's own IDE, much of Bob's effort throughout this decade has been focused upon developing and evangelizing RTSC—software technology which enables component-based development in C/C++ targeting diverse embedded platforms, and which has formally joined the Eclipse/DSDP community through a project of its own.
