5RTEMS was developed by On-Line Applications Research (OAR) under
6contract to the U.S. Army Missile Command.  Other than the
7contributions listed in this document, all code and documentation
8was developed by OAR for the Army.
10The RTEMS project would like to thank those who have made
11contributions to the project.  Together we make RTEMS a
12much better product.
14The following persons/organizations have made contributions:
16+ Dr. Mikhail (Misha) Savitski ( of the EISCAT
17  Scientific Association submitted the BSP and other miscellaneous support
18  for the Motorola MVME162 (M68040LC CPU) VMEbus single board computer.
20+ Division Inc. of Chapel Hill, NC for sponsoring On-Line Applications
21  Research to port RTEMS to the Hewlett-Packard PA-RISC architecture (V1.1)
22  and the addition of HP-UX as a development host. Tony Bennett
23  ( was assisted in this effort by Joel Sherrill
24  (  Tony also deserves a big pat on the back for
25  contributing significantly to the overall organization of the development
26  environment and directory structure.  RTEMS is much easier to build
27  because of Tony.
29+ Greg Allen of Division Inc. of Chapel Hill, NC for
30  porting RTEMS to HP-UX.  This port treats a UNIX computer as simply
31  another RTEMS target processor.  This port can be used to develop
32  and test code which will ultimately run on the embedded platform.
34+ Doug McBride ( of the Colorado Space Grant
35  College at the University of Colorado at Boulder submitted the BSP
36  for the Motorola IDP board (M68EC040 CPU) single board computer.  The
37  BSP leverages heavily off of the existing RTEMS BSP framework, the
38  examples in the back of the IDP user's manual, and the libgloss example
39  support for the IDP board from the newlib/libgloss distribution.
41+ David Glessner ( of Glenayre Electronics
42  submitted the support for the Motorola MC68302 CPU.  This included
43  the "gen68302" BSP which uses the on-chip peripherals on the MC68302
44  as well as the modifications to the m68k dependent executive code to
45  support m68k family members based on the mc68000 core.
47+ Bryce Cogswell ( submitted the support for MS-DOS
48  as a development environment as well as djgpp/go32 as a target environment.
50+ Andy Bray ( of I-CUBED Ltd. in Cambridge U.K.
51  for porting RTEMS to the PowerPC.  This effort included support for the
52  IBM 403 as well as the Motorola 601, 603, and 604 variants.  A special
53  thanks to Dom Latter ( for being an RTEMS
54  evangelist and promoting the use of RTEMS both at I-CUBED Ltd. as well 
55  as within the Internet community as a whole.
57+ John S. Gwynne ( of Ohio State University
58  submitted the support for the Motorola MC68332 CPU as well as completing
59  the support for CPUs based on the MC68000 core.  This included the "efi68k"
60  and "efi332" BSPs as well as completing the modifications to the m68k
61  dependent executive code to support m68k family members based on the
62  MC68000 core.  "efi68k" and "efi332" are single board computers designed
63  primarily for automotive electronic fuel injection (EFI) control, but can
64  be considered general purpose controllers when used without the EFI
65  companion board(s). See the README in each BSP for more information.
67+ The European Space Agency for sponsoring On-Line Applications Research
68  to port RTEMS to the SPARC V7 architecture for use with their ERC32
69  radiation-hardened CPU.  Jiri Gaisler ( deserves
70  special thanks for championing this port within the ESA was well as
71  for developing and supporting the SPARC Instruction Simulator used to
72  develop and test this port.
74+ Eric Norum ( of the Saskatchewan Accelerator
75  Laboratory submitted the support for the Motorola MC68360 CPU
76  including the `gen68360' BSP.
78+ Dominique le Campion (, for
79  Telecom Bretagne and T.N.I. (Brest, France) submitted the BSP for
80  the Motorola MVME147 board (68030 CPU + 68881 FPU) and the MVME147s
81  variant of this board.
83+ Craig Lebakken ( and Derrick Ostertag
84  ( of Transition Networks of Eden Prairie, MN
85  for porting RTEMS to the MIPS and AMD 29K architectures.  This submission
86  includes complete support for the R4650 as well as partial support
87  for the R4600.
89+ Erik Ivanenko ( of the University of Toronto
90  for submitting the i386ex bsp.
92+ Jiri Gaisler ( converted RTEMS to using GNU
93  autoconf.  This effort is greatly appreciated.
95+ Eric Norum ( of the Saskatchewan Accelerator
96  Laboratory submitted a BSP for the m68360 when operating in companion
97  mode with a m68040 and a port of the Motorola MC68040 Floating Point
98  Support Package (FPSP) to RTEMS.
100+ Eric Norum ( of the Saskatchewan Accelerator
101  Laboratory submitted a port of the KA9Q TCP/IP stack to RTEMS as
102  well as a network device driver for the gen68360 BSP.  To address
103  performance issues and licensing concerns, Eric followed this up
104  by replacing the KA9Q TCP/IP stack with a port of the FreeBSD stack.
106+ Chris Johns ( submitted the ods68302 BSP which
107  offers easier configuration than its counterpart gen68302.  Chris
108  also submitted the RTEMS++ C++ class library and test code for
109  that library.
111+ Katsutoshi Shibuya ( of BU-Denken Co., Ltd.
112  (Sapporo, Japan) submitted the extended console driver for the
113  MVME162LX BSP and the POSIX tcsetattr() and tcgetattr() routines.
114  This device driver supports four serial ports, cooked IO, and
115  provides a portable base for Zilog 8530 based console drivers.
117+ Eric Norum ( and Katsutoshi Shibuya
118  ( jointly developed the termios support.
120+ Ralf Corsepius ( of the Research Institute for
121  Applied Knowledge Processing at the University of Ulm (FAW), Germany,
122  for numerous enhancements to the RTEMS autoconf support as well as
123  for the Hitachi SH port.  His contributions are too many to list but
124  also include work on RPMs for RTEMS tools.
126+ Dario Alcocer <> submitted a port of the
127  RTEMS port to FreeBSD.
129+ David Fiddes <>, Rod Barman ( and
130  Stewart Kingdon ( submitted Motorola ColdFire

150  (, and provided patches to enable software
151  floating-point emulation for x86 targets.
153+ Jay Kulpinski ( of General Dynamics Defense
154  Systems (Pittsfield, MA) submitted a board support package for the
155  Motorola MVME230x PowerPC family, borrowing from the PSIM and MPC750
156  BSPs.  This includes support for the Raven ASIC, DEC21140 ethernet,
157  16550 serial port, and MK48T59 NVRAM.
159+ Eric Valette <> and Emmanuel Raguet <>
160  of Canon CRF - Communication Dept for numerous submissions including

162  GoAhead web server, port of RTEMS to the ARM architecture,
163  BSP for the Motorola MCP750 PowerPC board, and numerous improvements
164  to the i386 and PowerPC ports of RTEMS including a new enhanced
165  interrupt management API that reduces interrupt latency while making
166  it easier to support external interrupt controllers.
168+ Mark Bronson <> of RAMIX for submitting i960RP
169  support and the rxgen960 board support package.
171+ Joel Sherrill <> for the BSPs that work with
172  numerous simulators including psim, i960sim, c4xsim, h8sim, armulator,

193  with the C3x/C4X instruction set simulator in gdb.
195Finally, the RTEMS project would like to thank those who have contributed
196to the other free software efforts which RTEMS utilizes.  The primary RTEMS
197development environment is from the Free Software Foundation (the GNU
198project).  The "newlib" C library was put together by Cygnus and is
199a collaboration of the efforts of numerous individuals and organizations.
201We would like to see your name here.  BSPs and ports are always welcome.
202Useful libraries which support RTEMS applications are also an important
203part of providing a strong foundation for the development of real-time
204embedded applications and are welcome as submission.
