Opening the IoT with FreeRTOS

Published on Oct 31, 2019

Learn more about AWS at - The open source FreeRTOS kernel has been helping embedded developers manage the complexity of their MCU designs for 15 years, during which time FreeRTOS has gained a reputation for reliability, ease of use, and responsive support. AWS provides stewardship over the FreeRTOS kernel and makes continuous investments in its functionality and community. Most recently, the FreeRTOS kernel was updated to use an MIT license, extended with MIT-licensed security and connectivity libraries, and contributed support for the open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA). Richard Elberger dives deep into how additions to the MIT-licensed FreeRTOS ecosystem help MCU device developers overcome the new security and connectivity challenges presented when connecting small microcontrollers to the IoT.
