The article reports on the development of embedded device software that enhances the operating system and provides real time applications of devices. The device software optimization (DSO) has been introduced by chief executive officer Ken Klein of Wind River Inc. which brought about improvements in the software application operations. Companies vary in the definition of the word but share the same objective of providing real-time operating systems which help software developers to maximize their time in improving hardware designs and applications. It is of great significance to consider capabilities of DSO vendors to ensure their compatibility with the hardware operating systems.
