Micrium OS & Platform Builder updated to speed embedded design

March 08, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Micrium OS, the latest evolution of the proven embedded µC/OS RTOS, comes with an optimized RTOS kernel, communication stacks, file system and graphical user interface. The Platform Builder tool simplifies development by automatically resolving dependencies and configuring startup order once developers select the components they need.


Using Micrium OS and Platform Builder offers, says Silicon Labs, now owner of these product lines, developers a powerful approach to embedded design that reduces initialization complexity and accelerates time to market. The OS supports all major semiconductor providers including NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.


“Wireless connectivity, 32-bit MCUs and SoCs, and the multiple interfaces of IoT devices make it harder than ever to get systems configured, running and operating properly,” said Jean Labrosse, RTOS expert and founder of Micrium Software. “Soon, the majority of embedded systems will run an OS. Micrium OS and Platform Builder represent the future of solutions-based embedded design....”


Micrium OS and Platform Builder are part of the Silicon Labs portfolio and will be available for download beginning March 14, 2017, from the Micrium website. New commercial users enjoy a 45 day free trial and licensed customers can continue to use their existing Micrium software or migrate to Micrium OS and the new Platform Builder. Makers can check out the Micrium OS for Makers program for special offers.
