Embedded System Glossary – K

Embedded System Terminology - K

Kernel - The component within all operating systems that contains the main functionality of the OS, such as process management, memory management, and I/O system management.
Kernel Mode - A privileged CPU mode. Sometimes called supervisor mode. Parts of the operating system, such as the scheduler, device drivers, and the memory manager, usually execute in kernel mode, whereas application code executes in user mode. The transition from user mode to kernel mode is typically made somewhere inside an OS system call when a software interrupt instruction is executed
