Amazon FreeRTOS is a new handling complement for microcontroller-based IoT devices


When we consider of IoT devices, chances are we are meditative about a connected camera or sensor. Most of those inclination have really simple CPUs and run Linux or a identical handling system. Not each IoT device indeed facilities a genuine CPU, though. Instead, they are powered by simple microcontrollers. Those inclination (think fume detectors, etc.) are mostly aged and can’t directly bond to a cloud. They tend to run some chronicle of a FreeRTOS handling complement and kernel.

As AWS CEO Andy Jassy announced during a company’s re:Invent discussion today, a association suspicion about this emanate and motionless to build a possess handling complement in a form of Amazon FreeRTOS. This is a microcontroller handling complement that AWS says is meant to facilitate a growth and confidence of these really simple IoT devices. It’s meant to run on a low-power connected device that can bond to a cloud — possibly directly or by AWS Greengrass.

Amazon FreeRTOS is, as a name implies, radically an prolongation of a FreeRTOS handling complement that adds libraries for internal and cloud connectivity. Over time, Amazon will also supplement support for over-the-air updates.
