Thanks for your feedback Niklas. I am new to Ravenscar(just spelled it wrong today), this is very helpful.

It would be nice to have threads but I am not sure I actually need them.

I have serviced scientific instruments for 24 years now. I want to start fabricating them. I will have some bumps along the way with PCB design but I am confident that it will work out.

I have been playing around with Ada since 2012 but I still have lots to learn and I don't program in the day so it is not my strong suit. The hardware side should work out but I am worried about the software end of things. Ada is lovely but massive. There are so many features, so many libraries(some of which are abandoned). There are only so many hours in a day. 

I have a subset of the language I like and if I can just control CPU  address and data lines, I shouldn't need a RTOS. Trying several of them out could take a great deal of time.

I don't seem to have any extra runtimes with my install:

gnatls -v
