What is the ITRON Project?

The ITRON Project is to standardize real-time operating system for embedded systems and related specifications. Many products have been developed based on the µITRON real-time kernel specification, which was designed for consumer products and other small-scale embedded systems, and adopted in countless end products, making it an industry standard in this field in Japan. The ITRON specifications are investigated and developed by the ITRON Technical Committee of the TRON Association, as one of the subproject of the TRON Project. The ITRON Project is explained in more detail on the ITRON Home Page at "".
