From Texas Instruments Embedded Processors Wiki
Welcome to SYS/BIOS
| SYS/BIOS (previously called DSP/BIOS) is an advanced real-time operating system from Texas Instruments for use in a wide range of DSPs, ARMs, and microcontrollers. It is designed for use in embedded applications that need real-time scheduling, synchronization, and instrumentation. SYS/BIOS provides a wide range of system services such as:
SYS/BIOS provides many benefits that make it a great operating system for use in embedded applications running on TI DSPs, ARMs, and MCUs. If you've used older versions of DSP/BIOS before, you might be interested to learn how DSP/BIOS 5.x and SYS/BIOS 6.x are different.
What do I need in order to use SYS/BIOS?
SYS/BIOS is currently available for TI C64x+ core based devices (including the OMAP35x and DaVinci digital video processors), TMS320C674x devices (including OMAP-L13x), TMS320C66x multicore processors, Sitara ARM9 and Cortex A8 microprocessors, as well as TMS320C28x, Stellaris Cortex M3 and MSP430 microcontrollers. See the release notes in your SYS/BIOS installation for a detailed, up-to-date list of supported devices (here is a recent list).
SYS/BIOS can be used on targets with a wide range of memory capacities. For example, a small application on the MSP430 that includes timer, software interrupt, and task support can fit in less than 8 KB of Flash and less than 512 bytes of RAM, including stack space. See the benchmarks in your SYS/BIOS installation for size and performance measurements (here are recent results).
On the host side, you can create SYS/BIOS applications on a Microsoft Windows or Linux computer.CCSv4 and CCSv5), so if you have installed CCS, you probably already have some version of SYS/BIOS available. SYS/BIOS is also installed as part of TI-RTOS. SYS/BIOS is provided with full source code and requires no runtime license fees.
download the latest version of SYS/BIOS for use within CCS or as a standalone component (or to see the release notes for a specific version of SYS/BIOS).

SYS/BIOS ONLINE VIDEO TRAINING SERIES NOW AVAILABLE !!
As of 3/20/12, SYS/BIOS training is NOW AVAILABLE online for all users. While we teach this workshop LIVE, the authors decided to record all chapters and labs for your benefit and access around the world. Voice-over PPTs are usually BORING. However, this training series is hosted by the two authors and offers lots of in-depth conversations about the tools and SYS/BIOS, highlighting, add'l info not included in the downloads, stories, panning/zooming, etc. to keep the users engaged and having a good time while learning SYS/BIOS. The content also includes target-specific chapters on Stellaris and C6000. Don't wait...go check out this spectacular resource at your fingertips:
