Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe has set up a partnership with embedded software manufacturers Segger Microcontroller Systeme GmbH which calls for Segger's embOS RTOS to support Fujitsu's FR and 16LX series microcontrollers and Softune environment.
Using Segger's embOS operating system, Fujitsu can now meet requirements for a system optimised for embedded applications, providing the benefit of local European support from either company and services such as special software drivers for Flash programming support tools.
EmbOS is a small real-time kernel, supports all standard 8-/16-/32-bit CPUs, and provides CPUs with a multitasking system and 100% identical APIs.
EmbOS, supports all Fujitsu CPUs with an FR30 or FR50 core and, explained Rolf Segger, president and CEO of Segger, “It has been developed for and with Fujitsu's Softune compiler Fcc911s and supports all memory models offered by this compiler . . .. All embOS features, such as the entire palette of communication mechanisms, tasks and communication instances, can be dynamically created, deleted and configured.”
