FreeRTOS now available for Tensilica Processors

21 April 2015

Cadence Design Systems announces that the FreeRTOS is now available for Cadence Tensilica processors and digital signal processors (DSPs).

FreeRTOS is a popular, scalable, easy-to-use real-time kernel designed specifically for small, low-power embedded systems. According to a 2013 market share study from UBM Tech, FreeRTOS had been selected for 13 per cent of embedded projects that utilise an embedded operating system (OS), and is a very popular option for microcontrollers as well as smaller 32-bit processor cores.

Richard Barry, FreeRTOS developer and principal engineer of Real Time Engineers Ltd said, the availability of FreeRTOS on Tensilica processors and DSPs means that Cadence customers now have the option to join the many developers worldwide who already benefit from the ease of use and bullet-proof reliability of FreeRTOS. They look forward to welcoming Tensilica users to its global community. FreeRTOS makes it easier for programmers to develop complex real-time software that combines control and DSP threads, and FreeRTOS has specific support for Internet of Things (IoT) applications that helps customers get to market faster. Tensilica processors and DSPs are ideal for wearables and other IoT applications that combine wireless digital signal processing with control. By combining digital signal processing and control, designers can develop lower power, more efficient chips.
