AVIX is a modern preemptive Real Time Operating System, offering features, in combination, not found in any competing product. AVIX is based on the segmented architecture which is one of the most advanced architectures available. The most prominent advantage AVIX offers is that it never disables interrupts, meanwhile offering full integration between Interrupt Service Routines and threads. This feature allows extremely high interrupt rates no competing product is able to reach. AVIX is available for a number of different micro controller families. A version for a specific family is called a port.
