Abstract: 

A multiple microprocessor operating system kernel is described which supports concurrent high level language constructs, including processes, semaphores and monitors. Extension to these constructs are also supported. A complete operating system using this kernel is currently under development at Carleton University, for a hardware configuration consisting of several single board microcomputer systems which are connected via a standard bus arbiter to a common system bus with common memory and a single test-and-set flag. The system is being developed for an intelligent terminal application but the techniques have wider applicability.
