AbstractIn this paper we describe the design of the REAL/STAR 2000 system, a highperformance real-time computer for telemetry applications. The REAL/STAR 2000 is a symmetric, tightly-coupled multiprocessor, optimized for real-time processing. The system provides a high level of scalability and flexibility by supporting three configurations: single, dual, and quad processor configurations, based on Motorola 88100 RISC processors. The system runs the multiprocessor REAL/IX operating system, a real-time implementation of the AT&T UNIX System V. It compiles with BCS and OCS standards, meets the POSIX 1003.1 standard, and has the current functionality of the emerging POSIX 1003.4 real-time standard. The REAL/STAR 2000 promotes an open system approach to real-time computing by supporting major industry standards. Benchmark results are also presented in the paper.
