Sub-architecturesThe 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.
- JTRON: a sub-project of ITRON to allow it to use the Java platform

T-EngineT-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:
