models requiring intensive mathematical calculations are needed (such as
Operating systems can be classified into four categories. Real-Time OSs (RTOSs
) require no user intervention and are designed for systems with a specific
purpose and response time (such as robotic machinery). Single-user, single-task
them slightly larger (but more powerful) and also shortens their battery life.
Because of their small size, PDAs (like cell phones) must use specially designed
processors and operating system software. They store their operating system
