Abstract As microprocessor systems and single-chip microcomputers become more complex, so do the software systems developed for them. In many cases, software is being designed that incorporates multiple control functions running asynchronously on a single microprocessor. Here, discussion focuses on the motivation for running such multiple functions under the control of a real-time multitasking executive. A successfully implemented executive whose design is portable and suitable for use on most 8-bit microprocessors is presented.
