Real-Time Operating System

(operating system)
(RTOS) Any operating system where interrupts are guaranteed to be handled within a certain specified maximum time, thereby making it suitable for control of hardware in embedded systems and other time-critical applications. RTOS is not a specific product but a class of operating systems.

real-time operating system

A master control program that provides immediate responses to input signals and transactions. See real-time system, embedded system, embedded Linux, process control and OS-9.
