Micrium Launches First End-to-End Solution for Internet of Things Device Design

WESTON, FL – September 24, 2014 – Micrium, Inc., the premier RTOS provider for embedded systems, today introduced Micrium Spectrum a pre-integrated end-to-end portfolio of embedded software, protocol stacks, cloud services to facilitate development of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. A first in the industry, Micrium Spectrum is also silicon vendor agnostic, which allows designers to develop proprietary and differentiated solutions.

“The IoT is driving a resurgence in the embedded industry,” said Jean Labrosse, CEO and president of Micrium. “IoT-ready devices require a solid software infrastructure, including a real-time kernel plus additional services like TCP/IP, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stacks, as well as cloud services and the ability to put it all together. This is what we are bringing to market in Micrium Spectrum; a truly end-to-end approach designed to allow engineers to maximize the performance of their systems.”

Micrium Spectrum is a comprehensive offering of products and services to facilitate and accelerate the design of IoT-ready devices:

  • Real time operating system (RTOS): µC/OS-II® or µC/OS-III®
  • Local networking: Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth (classic and low energy)
  • IoT protocols: http client and server with REST API, MQTT
  • Java support:  Java Virtual Machine for deeply embedded systems
  • Cloud computing: Web services such as cloud-server interfaces, data brokering and cloud storage

“For the IoT to truly take off, devices need to be interconnected so information can be exchanged between systems ­ machine to machine ­ or connected to the cloud,” said Christian Légaré, CTO and executive vice president of Micrium. “Fundamentally, IoT devices are embedded systems with connectivity, so it is important to approach the IoT from the embedded systems level. Micrium Spectrum makes sense of the IoT, making it easy to design reliable, high-performance devices and maximize their potential.”

Micrium Spectrum is available now with a variety of licensing options. Contact the company at sales@micrium.com or visit us in booth #801 at ARM TechCon October 1-3 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. for more information.

Better PPA with Innovus Mixed Placer Technology – Gigaplace XL

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With the increase of on-chip storage elements, it has become extremely time consuming to come up with an optimized floorplan with manual methods. Innovus Implementation’s advanced multi-objective placement technology, GigaPlace XL, provides automation to optimize at scale, concurrent placement of macros, and standard cells for multiple objectives like timing, wirelength, congestion, and power. This technology provides an innovative way to address design productivity along with design quality improvements reducing weeks of manual floorplan time down to a few hours.

Cloud Computing for Electronic Design (Are We There Yet?)

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

When your project is at crunch time, a shortage of server capacity can bring your schedule to a crawl. But, the rest of the year, having a bunch of extra servers sitting around idle can be extremely expensive. Cloud-based EDA lets you have exactly the compute resources you need, when you need them. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Craig Johnson of Cadence Design Systems about Cadence’s cloud-based EDA solutions.
