µTasker is a project/product of the company M.J. Butcher Consulting that is suitable for commercial projects and educational establishments (teaching processors and protocol stacks) which allows students easy testing and analyzing software without the need for dedicated hardware platforms.
Brief History of µTasker
µTasker starts as an embedded operating system targeting smaller single-chip processors. It’s just a small footprint but still provides powerful features and development. Later, µTasker simulator was created which allows programmers to exercise project codes on a simulated target device and by mid-2005, µTasker project version 1 was developed. In early 2006, the development of the µTasker project was laid and continues to be developed. Presently, the µTasker project is available for the devices on the start side and can be simulated in the µTasker simulator.
The µTasker project is generally available as a free open-source code that can be used for both commercial or non-commercial work. Professional developers have the option to license a fuller-featured and personally supported version when this makes sense.
The ultimate goal of this project is to continue extending the project’s capabilities for real-world requirements in order to provide an efficient solution for mission-critical product developments on its supported processors.
