SEGGER has added the RISC-V processor to its list of more than 80 ports for the company’s embOS RTOS, which guarantees 100% deterministic, real-time operation for any embedded device. The embOS RTOS is fully compliant with the MISRA-C:2012 standard, making it suitable for demanding automotive and high-integrity applications. The RISC-V embOS port comes with a BSP (board support package) for Digilent’s $99 ARTY evaluation board—based on a Xilinx Artix-7 A35T FPGA—providing a straightforward getting-started experience with SEGGER software on RISC-V. In support of the RTOS, SEGGER offers emWin to construct user interfaces, emFile file system, emSSL, emSSH and emSecure to secure internet communications, cryptographic and security libraries for encryption, code signing and authentication (digital signatures), embOS/IP, emModbus, emUSB-Host and emUSB-Device communication stacks for Internet and industrial applications, and emLoad to enable firmware updates from portable storage or delivered over the air.
