Micrium Brings Connectivity Solutions, Including IPv6, to STM32 MCUs
WESTON, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Micrium, the premier RTOS provider for embedded systems, today announced
the availability of a full complement of professional-quality
connectivity solutions, including the highly anticipated IPv6-compliant
edition of the uC/TCP-IP network stack, on the STM32F407 line of ARM (News - Alert)
Cortex-M4-based MCUs from ST Microelectronics. In addition to uC/TCP-IP,
these solutions include feature-rich host and device stacks for USB that
implement many of this protocol's most popular classes.
"The great push to develop products for the rapidly expanding Internet
of Things is making communication a vital part of more devices," said
Micrium Founder and CEO Jean Labrosse. "The combination of
Cortex-M4-based MCUs from ST Microelectronics and robust protocol stacks
from Micrium puts proven communications options at developers'
fingertips, helping to ensure that projects finish on time and under
The uC/TCP-IP network stack is written according to the incredibly
rigorous coding standards that have brought Micrium renown amongst
embedded systems developers, and the stack has proven itself time and
again in a variety of innovative products since its release 10 years
ago. It features a highly intuitive, easy-touse API, and it is
exhaustively documented in uC/TCP-IP, The Embedded Protocol Stack, written
by Micrium's Executive Vice President and CTO, Christian Legare.
The uC/USB Device and Host modules that stand alongside uC/TCP-IP in
Micrium's product lineup share many of the network stack's impressive
attributes. The USB software features remarkably clean code and is
available with robust implementations of many popular classes, including
Audio, Mass Storage, Human Interface Device, Communications Device, and
Personal Healthcare Device.
Micrium's software has long been recognized for its compatibility with
the ARM Cortex-M core, and 2014 marks five years since the highly
popular uC/OS-III kernel first ran on a Cortex-M-based STM32 MCU.
Currently, Micrium supports the STM32 family with a full spectrum of
RTOS components that includes, in addition to uC/OS-III and the protocol
stacks, the uC/FS file system and the uC/OS-II kernel preferred by
developers of safety-critical systems.
All of the modules in Micrium's lineup are available under
straightforward, royalty-free licensing terms. Newly updated example
projects incorporating the protocol stacks and targeting the STM32F407
line can be downloaded now from the Micrium Web site: http://micrium.com/downloadcenter/download-results/?searchterm=hm-stmicroelectronics&supported=true.
Micrium is an RTOS and tools provider serving embedded systems
developers. The products in Micrium's portfolio are accompanied by
intuitive documentation and are backed by second-to-none technical
support. For more information, visit www.micrium.com.
