Mentor Graphics Corporation said it has introduced the Nucleus real time operating system (RTOS) targeting high-performance, next-generation applications for wearable embedded devices designed for medical, fitness, security, safety and other sectors.
The introduction of new multicore system-on-chip (SoC) architectures targeting wearable devices with Internet of Things (IoT) features requires an operating system that has a framework tailored to meet new system requirements. The Nucleus RTOS framework for smart wearable devices connects to other smart devices, gateways, or directly to the cloud.
Optimised for size, performance, and power efficiency in unicore or multicore SoCs, the Nucleus RTOS is the embedded operating system to provide a power management and processor lifecycle framework to maximise wearable device battery life.
The Nucleus RTOS provides memory space partitioning in both high-performance microprocessor units (MPU) and resource-constrained microcontroller units (MCU) to support software updates and upgrades in deployed systems. The Nucleus RTOS includes a rich IPv4/v6 networking stack, M2M protocols, and security for IoT applications and cloud connectivity.
Established in 1981, Mentor Graphics Corporation is in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products, consulting services and award-winning support for the world´s most successful electronic, semiconductor and systems companies.
