SAN FRANCISCO Embedded software provider Micrium said Wednesday (Sept. 6) that its uC/OS-II real-time operating system (RTOS) now supports Tensilica Inc.'s Diamond Standard and Xtensa configurable processors.
The uC/OS-II RTOS now can run on all of Tensilica's Diamond Standard CPU and controller cores, including the Diamond Standard 108Mini, 212GP, 232L, and 570T, as well as most Xtensa configurations, Micrium (Weston, Fla.) said.
Larry Przywara, Tensilica's director of strategic alliances, said through a statement that customer requests for uC/OS-II prompted the action.
“It [uC/OS-II] is valued because of its very small footprint and very reasonable royalty-free licensing,” Przywara said. “We expect that several of our customers will immediately start to use this RTOS.”
