SEGGER presents a new embOS port for the Renesas Electronics’ automotive RH850 microcontroller (MCU) Family.

SEGGER presents a new embOS port for the Renesas Electronics’ automotive RH850 microcontroller (MCU) Family. The industry-leading efficiency of embOS complements the high-performance and very low power consumption characteristics that are inherent within RH850 MCUs. The embOS port comes with board support packages for all popular Renesas RH850 MCUs plus their related evaluation boards. These 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 highly-valued embOS manual, which can not only be used as a reference for the embOS API but, in addition, comprehensively describes all the RTOS basics for engineers are not yet familiar with an embedded RTOS. Furthermore, embOS is fully MISRA-C:2012 compliant, thus proving the superior quality of the embOS source code and facilitating its utilization in demanding automotive environments.

“With the introduction of embOS for our RH850 Family, SEGGER shows their expertise in creating highly-efficient software. It 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.

“Renesas RH850 is a very flexible and scalable automotive-optimized MCU solution. With similar attributes and equally high degrees of operational performance, it is clear that embOS and RH850 are very well matched together.” adds Til Stork Product Manager embOS at SEGGER.
