Uppsala, Sweden. IAR Systems has announced that its IAR Embedded Workbench development toolchain will support Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Amazon FreeRTOS, an operating system (OS) designed for microcontroller-based (MCU-based) Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Support will give Amazon FreeRTOS users access to a development suite that includes a C/C++ compiler and debugger, integrated code analysis tools, and global technical support.
Amazon FreeRTOS is based on the FreeRTOS kernel, and includes software libraries for securely connecting devices to services such as AWS Greengrass or the cloud. IAR Embedded Workbench already supports several MCUs that have been qualified to work with Amazon FreeRTOS, including devices from Microchip, NXP, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments.
“FreeRTOS is widely used among our customers and the new capabilities added by AWS will enable them to take their development of connected applications to the next level,” says Lotta Frimanson, Product Manager, IAR Systems. “AWS and IAR Systems solutions provide easy access to high-performance and integrated tools that can enable developers to focus on the innovative and differentiating parts of their application.”
