    Abstract

    This article describes the hardware which is designed for speeding up and supporting the schedule routines of the TUMULT multi-tasking operating system. TUMULT uses a “priority running up” schedule algorithm which automatically increases the priority of a process when (part of) it must be finished before another process, with a higher priority, can run. Also the theoretical backgrounds of the schedule algorithm and properties for some classes of schedule problems are described.
