Micrium Announces Availability of µC/OS for Makers Real-Time Operating System

  • Industry-leading RTOS available at no cost for makers and pre-revenue startups
  • Fully featured commercial product means no compromises for designers

Weston, Fla. – Feb. 16, 2016 – Micrium, the premier real-time operating system (RTOS) provider for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), today formally announced that its new µC/OS for Makers program will launch on February 23, 2016.

“The reality is that many projects start in people’s homes or pre-revenue organizations where ideas are plentiful but financial resources are not,” said Jean Labrosse, president and CEO of Micrium. “Micrium was founded because of my own frustrations with the RTOSes available and a desire to bring clean, well-documented and high-performance software to the embedded industry. Offering our proven, commercial RTOS at no cost for makers and startups is a natural extension of our commitment to quality and training that has long guided our organization.”

µC/OS for Makers allows engineers to design-in Micrium’s industry-leading RTOS at no cost: It’s proven, reliable and comes with extensive documentation, sample projects and support videos.

µC/OS is ideally suited to all embedded vertical markets, with some certifiable to meet rigorous safety-critical standards for industries such as medical electronics, avionics and industrial products.

The program includes Micrium’s µC/OS-III® RTOS kernel and µC/TCP-IP, µC/USB-Host™, µC/USB-Device™, µC/MODBUS™ and µC/FS™ embedded systems components. Micrium’s µC/Probe™ graphical visualization tool for embedded debugging is also available as part of the program.

“Our goal for µC/OS for Makers is to allow engineers to build the highest-quality embedded systems from the start, without compromising on quality. µC/OS for Makers takes away cost considerations, making it easy to implement Micrium’s RTOS in their designs,” said Labrosse.

Complete information on the µC/OS for Makers program is available on our website. To order, please visit our website, or visit us during Embedded World in Hall 4, Booth 4-350, Nuremberg, Germany, February 23-25, 2016.
