  • Simplifying Authenticated Cloud Connectivity for Any Device
    Introduction Featured FreeRTOS IoT reference integrations show how to integrate the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions of FreeRTOS libraries with hardware enforced security to help create secure cloud connected devices. This blog describes how to use Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity modules that implement the AWS IoT ExpressLink specification (from here on, "ExpressLink") to achieve the same […]

  • Designing an energy efficient and cloud-connected IoT solution with CoAP
    Two of the main factors considered during the development of Internet of Things (IoT) devices are efficiency and cloud compatibility. Efficiency, both in energy consumption and data usage, is important to reduce operational and maintenance costs - especially for cellular, battery-operated devices. Energy saving is a puzzle with many pieces, and choosing the appropriate communication […]

  • Previewing the new Arm Corstone FreeRTOS Featured Reference Integration
    Most people know Arm for our hardware designs and our Cortex CPUs, but our ongoing commitment to the software ecosystem that enables this hardware is just as critical. It's really important to us that developers can easily take advantage of the latest features of our CPUs, ML accelerators and other system IP. Because FreeRTOS powers […]

  • Achieving Unbrickable MCU FOTA for your FreeRTOS-powered Firmware: The Microvisor IoT Approach
    FreeRTOS brings a stack of functionality to embedded applications, enabling them to become much more flexible, and their developers to be more creative. But there's a key requirement of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in particular that takes a lot of extra development work to put in place, to make it truly secure, and to […]

  • Why Write Another MQTT Library?
    Libraries capture a set of decisions about how the world should work. If you're lucky, the model in the library is a suitable match for your needs and constraints. If you're not lucky, you either end up with something that's wasteful, or requires changes, or you must search for a different library that's a better […]

  • Using Visual Studio Code for FreeRTOS development
    Visual Studio Code has become a very popular code editor. You may be using it for development tasks already, but perhaps not yet for embedded development work. Or perhaps you are using it for embedded development work as you prefer the editing environment over your existing embedded development tools, but you haven’t been able to […]

  • Developing LoRaWAN Applications with FreeRTOS
    We are excited to introduce the LoRaWAN - FreeRTOS Labs Project, a reference implementation of LoRaWAN connectivity with FreeRTOS. This project is meant to demonstrate how FreeRTOS can simplify the development of IoT applications using LoRa technology. LoRa is a long range and low-power wireless technology operating in the unlicensed spectrum. It is designed for […]

  • Introducing the FreeRTOS Cellular Library
    We are happy to introduce a preview of a new FreeRTOS library designed to simplify the development of IoT applications that connect to the cloud using cellular LTE-M technology. LTE-M, also known as Cat-M1, is a low-cost LPWAN technology developed by 3GPP as part of Release 13 of the LTE standard, a component of the […]

  • micro-ROS on FreeRTOS
    Authors: Francesca Finocchiaro (eProsima), Pablo Garrido-Sanchez (eProsima), José Antonio Moral Parras (eProsima) Introduction The Robot Operating System (ROS) is an open source software framework for robotics applications development. ROS 2 is the second generation of ROS, designed with a layered architecture that separates the ROS client layers (RCL and RCLCPP/RCLCPY) from the ROS middleware layer […]
