November 07, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Segger has ported its embOS to the Renesas Electronics’ automotive RH850 microcontroller (MCU) family. The embOS port comes with board support packages for all popular Renesas RH850 MCUs plus their related evaluation boards.

Board support packages run direct out of-the-box without the need for additional configuration or setup. Included in the support items is a project for the IAR EWRH850 workbench. The embOS for RH850 offering includes the embOS manual, which can not only be used as a reference for the embOS API but also describes all the RTOS basics for engineers are not yet familiar with an embedded RTOS. embOS is fully MISRA-C:2012 compliant for use in demanding automotive environments.


“[embOS for RH850] … enables our customers to benefit from low memory footprints, thus leaving more room for the actual application. It also delivers highly predictable performance, which enables real-time applications”, says Hans-Michael Loch, Senior Manager for Support in the Automotive Business Group at Renesas Electronics Europe.
