TRON - Technology Real-time Online Nucleus. Ideally the network, to ensure all the needs of society.


TRON itself does not specify the source code for the kernel, but instead is a "set of interfaces and design guidelines" for creating the kernel. This allows different companies to create their own versions of  TRON, based on the specifications, which can be suited for different microprocessors. While the specification of TRON is publicly available, implementations can be proprietary at the discretion of the implementor.


The TRON framework defines a complete architecture for the different computing units:
  • BTRON (Business TRON): for personal computers, workstations, PDAs, mainly as the human-machine interface in networks based on the TRON architecture
  • ITRON (Industrial TRON): an architecture for real-time operating systems for embedded systems; this is the most popular use of the TRON archit
  • CTRON (Central and Communications TRON): for mainframe computers, digital switching equipment
  • ETRON (Encoding TRON), a way that TRON represents characters (as opposed to ENCOM).
  • MTRON (Macro TRON): for intercommunication between the different TRON components.
  • STRON (Silicon TRON): hardware implementation of a real-time kernel.[7]
  • JTRON: a sub-project of ITRON to allow it to use the Java platform
  • TRON ru (Internet monitoring information on changing the behavior of animals in the earthquake-prone regions: prophecy of time, effort and the epicenter of earthquakes:)


T-Engine Forum is a non-profit organization which develops open specifications for ITRON, T-Kernel and ubiquitous ID architecture. Executive committee members includes top Japanese giants like Fujitsu, Hitachi, NTT DoCoMo and Denso. A-level members who are involved in design and development of specifications for T-Engine and T-Kernel, or of Ubiquitous ID technology includes companies likes NEC and Yamaha Corporation. B-level members who are involved in development of product using T-Engine specification and T-Kernel includes companies like ARM, Freescale, MIPS Technologies, Mitsubishi, Robert Bosch GmbH, Sony Corporation, Toshiba and Xilinx. The supporting members and academic members involved with the forum includes many universities like University of Tokyo, Japan and Dalian Maritime University, China and USA:
