Symobi (“System for mobile applications”) – a modern and mobile OS. It is based on the µnOS operating system which incorporates the Sphere microkernel. Symobi offers a complete graphical OS environment with services, a graphical user interface, standard programs, and drivers. The operating system is designed for the use in embedded and mobile systems, but is also suitable for other purposes.

Symobi is platform independent by architecture. Hence, it can be deployed on all modern processor architectures. Nevertheless, there is some work to do to really port Symobi to a new hardware platform. But this work is easy to do since only platform specific mechanisms (e.g. MMU) have to be implemented. There are no architectural changes to be made and there is no higher level programming work to do. As a result, Symobi can be ported to a new platform within weeks and to another processor model of an already supported platform within days. This basic ability of Symobi is liked a lot by our customers since it allows them to choose the hardware they really want and need for their application instead of having to choose a hardware fitting the RTOS used.

Valuable Abilities:
– real-time
– small size/footprint
– high provable stability/reliability
– simplicity
– high performance
– small, efficient API
– embeddable

Modern Features:
– multi-core/multi-processor support
– multi-platform
– client/server architecture
– isolated hardware driver architecture
– light-weight multithreading & multitasking
– strongly protected process spaces
– wide-range scalability

Supported Hardware:
– x386 / IA32
– ARM / XScale
– PowerPC

The last version | Released: 4 | March 8, 2006

ERPOSS – a Debian based Linux distribution released as the government desktop by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), which was developed in cooperation with Credativ GmbH from Jülich. The idea was to offer public administrations inexpensive and secure software solutions.

Debian GNU/Linux “Sarge” was expanded to include OpenOffice.org and KDE 3.3.2. The installation was greatly simplified and automatic hardware detection replaced manual editing of many configuration files.

Other desktops such as Gnome or WindowMaker were missing to make the distribution applicable for the easy setup of uniform PCs with a graphical user interface, web browser (Firefox) and OpenOffice.org office software.

Special features of the ERPOSS4 government desktop:
– Encryption of the file system (installation CD only)
– Pre-configured and activated personal firewall
– KMail email software with integrated virus and spam protection and encryption
– Pre-configuration to participate in the administrative PKI

System requirements of the ERPOSS3 government desktop:
– x86-compatible processor of the 486 generation or better
– At least 128 MB RAM
– Bootable CD-ROM drive
– Serial, PS/2 or USB mouse

The project was declared “outdated” by the BSI in 2008 and will no longer be continued.
