Embedded Linux as a platform for dynamically self-reconfiguring systems-on-chip
free download

 In line with this platform-based approach, it was determined that the software infrastructure needs of Egret would be best served by an embedded operating system, rather than a classical microkernel. We chose the open source Linux derivative called uClinux (you-see-linux).
