TI Integrates the new Amazon FreeRTOS into its SimpleLink™ MCU Platform
Quickly and easily develop an IoT Application with connection to the cloud
Texas Instruments have announced the integration of the new Amazon FreeRTOS into the SimpleLink™ microcontroller (MCU) platform.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has worked with TI in the development of an integrated hardware and software solution
that enables developers to quickly establish a connection to AWS IoT service out-of-the-box and
immediately begin system development.
Amazon FreeRTOS, launched today at AWS re: Invent 2017 in Las Vegas, providing tools one needs to quickly and easily deploy a microcontroller-based connected device and develop an IoT application without having to worry about the complexity of scaling across millions of devices. Once connected, IoT device applications can take advantage of the capabilities the cloud has to offer or continue processing data locally with AWS Greengrass.
TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi® CC3220SF wireless MCU LaunchPad™ development kit, which now supports Amazon FreeRTOS, offers embedded security features such as secure storage, cloning protection, secure bootloader and networking security. Developers can take advantage of these security features to help them protect cloud-connected IoT devices from theft of intellectual property (IP) and data or other risks.
“Building an IoT solution requires expertise in embedded systems, software integration and cloud development, which are traditionally independent of each other. We have been working closely with AWS to help address some of the complexities by providing an end-to-end development platform,” said Mattias Lange, TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi wireless MCU manager. “By extending our relationship with AWS to integrate Amazon FreeRTOS into our SimpleLink MCU platform, we are enabling developers to move faster and focus on their innovative IoT products.”
“AWS aims to simplify solutions for customers, and the addition of Amazon FreeRTOS does just that by allowing customers to securely connect all of their devices locally and to AWS, thus accelerating the development of IoT systems,” said Dirk Didascalou, Vice President of IoT, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “By integrating with Amazon FreeRTOS, TI’s SimpleLink MCUs provide customers a complete end-to-end solution for cloud enabled IoT products and lowers the barrier for those looking to get their products faster to market.”
