Micrium announced commercial real-time operating system (RTOS) support for the Atmel SMART ARM Cortex M7-based SAM V71/V70/E70 and S70 microcontrollers (MCUs).
“The industry brings a number of performance and secure communication requirements to the table for embedded systems that benefit significantly from using a proven, commercial RTOS kernel and middleware. µC/OS-III is proven in applications where reliability and security are paramount, as well as having a long track-record of performance in ARM based devices. This new project makes it easy for designers to get our kernel up and running on Atmel’s powerful SMART MCU platform”, said Jean Labrosse, CEO of Micrium.
The RTOS kernel runs on Atmel’s ARM Cortex M7-based MCUs and supports the SAM V71 Xplained Ultra Evaluation Kit, ATSAMV71-XULT, featuring the ATSAMV71Q21 MCU. It also integrates several Atmel-supplied libraries for various MCU peripheral devices such as ADC, Embedded Flash Controller and SPI bus to further facilitate evaluating and prototyping with Micrium on the platform.
“Availability of Micrium’s µC/OS-III further strengthens the ecosystem for our Atmel | SMART ARM Cortex M7-based MCUs. µC/OS-III’s ability to support features like high-speed connectivity and high performance on-chip memory makes it a natural fit for this platform”, said Jacko Wilbrink, Atmel’s senior marketing director.
