Authors(6) :-Qamar Jabeen, Fazlullah Khan, Muhammad Nouman Hayat, Haroon Khan, Syed Roohullah Jan, Farman Ullah

In these days embedded system have an important role in different Fields and applications like Network embedded system , Real-time embedded systems which supports the mission-critical domains, mostly having the time constraints, Stand-alone systems which includes the network router etc. A great deployment in the processors made for completing the demanding needs of the users. There is also a large-scale deployment occurs in sensor networks for providing the advance facilities, for handled such type of embedded systems a specific operating system must provide. This paper presents some software infrastructures that have the ability of supporting such types of embedded systems.
