Fiasco is a new µ-kernel (microkernel) running on x86 PCs intended to be compatible with the L4 µ-kernel for x86. It implements the L4 ABI as defined in the L4/x86 Reference Manual.
The Fiasco kernel can be used to construct flexible systems. We at TU Dresden use it as a base for our DROPS system which supports running real-time and time-sharing applications concurrently on one computer. However, Fiasco is not only suitable for big and complex systems, but also for small, embedded applications.
