“IPv6 is the backbone of IoT design,” says
The IPv6 functionality enables embedded systems to have a global IP address, making it possible for them to be globally reachable without having to work around Network Address Translation (NAT) routers. Micrium’s TCP/IP with IPv6 was designed and developed using the company’s quality coding standards, naming convention and on-line documentation. All the existing Micrium application layer modules are compatible with IPv4 and IPv6 (HTTP server, DNS Client, DHCP Client, FTP Client and Server, Telnet, SMTP Client).
Additional enhancements to “The Power of Two” include software updates, product releases, the latest system development tools, as well as, free of charge, Renesas Demonstration Kits (RDKs) which now include Renesas RX63N MCUs. For example, a significant addition is the new Renesas Firmware Integration Technology (FIT). Because Micrium software includes kernel and middleware stacks, but no low-level drivers, standalone drivers may be difficult to integrate into complicated embedded applications. Renesas created FIT coding standards to solve this issue. The FIT modules are written to enable them to work with each other and in an RTOS environment.
Also, “The Power of Two” now taps into Micrium’s new Evergreen™ program, designed to simplify projects and reduce development time by continually re-integrating and validating example projects for the Renesas MCUs. Over thirty Renesas RL78 and RX MCU-based example projects, including projects such as the Micrium “Demo of Everything” using the Renesas RX63N MCU, are supported by the Evergreen program; they are integrated, certified and tested to the latest standards for the MCU, tool chain and Micrium components. System engineers applying Micrium Evergreen example projects on Renesas development boards are assured the projects will function to specifications. This avoids costly debugging delays caused by using outdated example projects. Finally, Micrium adds its µC/USB-Device stack with audio class for systems that manipulate music, voice and other sound types used in consumer audio products such as headsets, speakers and microphones.
“'The Power of Two' program continues to demonstrate how the close and ongoing relationship between Micrium and Renesas allows us to capitalize on the strengths of each company to provide best-in-class hardware and software solutions,” says
ABOUT “THE POWER OF TWO” PROGRAM
“The Power of Two” program bundles Renesas’ high-quality MCUs with a real-time operating system (RTOS) and middleware components from Micrium, as well as best-in-class development tools from IAR Systems. The program provides more portable, scalable and affordable MCU designs for connected and emerging applications within the
“The Power of Two” offers embedded developers working with any Renesas RX or RL78 devices free production licenses of Micrium’s RTOS µC/OS-II or µC/OS-III® and middleware (connectivity stacks, storage software and graphics), along with one year of maintenance and support. Developers who qualify for the program also get a free license of IAR Embedded Workbench for RX or RL78, including one year of technical support and software upgrades as well as up to two hours of web-based training provided by
The “Power of Two” program is valid in the
