Each series of real-time targets runs on one of three real-time operating systems (RTOSes): IntervalZero Phar Lap ETS, Wind River VxWorks, or NI Linux Real-Time.
LabVIEW Real-Time support began on x86 based targets and used Phar Lap, now named ETS. VxWorks was later added to support PowerPC based targets.
NI ETS 2009 is the same software as Phar Lap ETS 13.1. With the release of LabVIEW Real-Time 2009, National Instruments began to refer to the ETS operating system by release number instead of version number.
Refer to the following topics to learn about unique considerations and unsupported features for each real-time operating system:
Refer to the specific RT target hardware documentation for information about the real-time operating system installed on the target.
