Micrium-NXP announcement

Micrium Offers First RTOS to Support NXP’s LPC3180
With Vector Floating Point Coprocessor


Micrium Embedded Components Ported to NXP’s
Full Line of ARM7 and ARM9 Processors

WESTON, FL, USA – December 12, 2006Micrium, a leading provider of high quality embedded software components, today announced that its uC/OS-II real time operating system (RTOS) and uC/OS-View have been ported on NXP’s LCP3180 family of ARM9 processors. uC/OS-II is the first RTOS to support NXP’s Vector Floating Point unit (VFP), which combines high performance with low power dissipation.

“Micrium’s embedded software components consistently address the performance and quality required by NXP customers,” stated Joe Yu, strategic marketing director for NXP’s microcontroller product line. “Having Micrium’s software available for NXP’s ARM7 and ARM9 families gives our customers a high-value option for their embedded components.”

In addition to the ARM9 support, Micrium has also ported its uC/OS-II, uC/OS-View, uC/USB and uC/TCP-IP to multiple ARM7 series, including the LPC214x, LPC2888 and LPC23xx and LPC24xx. Ports of Micrium’s embedded components available for NXP processors can be found on the Micrium website at http://www.micrium.com/nxp/.

“By offering time-limited trials of our RTOS and TCP/IP stack, we enable product developers to truly appreciate the performance advantages of our software before making a financial investment,” stated Jean Labrosse, president and CEO of Micrium. “NXP recognizes the value this brings to product developers implementing its microcontrollers in embedded applications and we are pleased to support NXP’s strong family of ARM7 and ARM9 products.”

uC/OS-II is a highly portable, ROMable, scalable, preemptive, real-time, multitasking kernel. uC/OS-II is written in ANSI C. uC/OS-II meets the demanding requirements of the RTCA DO-178B standard for software used in avionics equipment. uC/TCP-IP is a compact, reliable, high performance TCP/IP protocol stack. Built from the ground up to be both scalable and highly reliable, uC/TCP-IP enables the rapid configuration of required network options to minimize time-to-market. uC/OS-View allows developers to view a number of performance metrics from a uC/OS-II based product, and uC/USB allows them to quickly and painlessly develop software for an embedded device to communicate with a PC via USB.
