The Minix3 core and basic services have been ported to the 10-core processor




We have ported OS Minix3 and its basic services to our processor system. With transition to Minix, we’ve got both multitasking and an opportunity to work with the file system and network interfaces. Moreover, now we have a complete standard C library (earlier we had an abridged version).


It should be noted, that OS Minix3 is officially supported on x86-compatible processors only. Different versions of this OS could be found but they're rather experimental. Therefore, we’ve done a lot of work to run this OS on our system.


FYI: Originally OS Minix3 was developed by Andrew Tanenbaum for educational purposes, but eventually it started to be used in industrial computer systems due to its simplicity and safety.
