SEGGER’s embOS RTOS turns 64-bit SoCs into single chip computers
With embOS, users can now easily migrate to 64-bit systems while continuing to use the same application software as deployed to their current 32-bit platforms, with the same deterministic real-time behavior and even higher speed.
“There is a trend towards 64-bit CPUs for high-end applications. Customers want to use the latest SoCs or FPGAs, which are now switching to 64-bit processors,” says Til Stork, Product Manager embOS. “In most cases we see companies switch to 64-bit not because they want to, but because they have to in order to use state-of-the-art silicon. With embOS, the transition to using these powerful chips is easy. At the same time, the application program stays lean, boots quickly and is fully under the control of the application programmer.”
In many cases, the small footprint of embOS enables using 64-bit cores with just the on-chip RAM and cache memory, eliminating the need for external RAM. This significantly reduces the number of components, reducing complexity and cost of the product and the design.
embOS is a commercial RTOS supported by the experts who wrote the code and is available for use across all silicon manufacturers.
SEGGER’s embOS makes every byte count, now also on 64-bit platforms.
