Maybe the Xilinx kernel would be interessting for you. This kernel is just a library you have to add to your design and is free to use (if you have the Xilinx EDK). Thus it is small and adaptable to your purpose. It is POSIX like and supports multi-threading too. For some more basic introduction you should take a look at the Support section of the Xilinx page, both for getting started with Linux on Xilinx boards and for getting started with Xilinx kernel.

I think Linux and freeRTOS are allready two good examples. For what purpose you need a OS?

My current design uses a Silicon Labs 8-bit microcontroller to drive a stepper motor and a solenoid. I am not using an operating system. One would be overkill.

----------------------------Yes, I do this for a living.

Xilkernel should be sufficient.

 

If you are using MicroBlaze v4.0, you don't have many choices anyway, since it has no MMU.
