This thesis extends the multi-computer real-time executive, MCOPTEX, for a cluster of single board computers (INTEL iSBC 36/12) on the MULTIBUS, to a multiple cluster system tied together by a Local Area Network (Ethernet). The E-MCORTEX system uses evertcounts and sequencers to synchronize processes resident in the network. Data communications between processes are presently limited to a single cluster with shared memory. However, future versions of E-MCORTEX will" permit network-wide process synchronization and data communication.
