FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SMX RTOS Now Available for Atmel AT91RM9200,
AT91SAM7A1, and AT91SAM7S Processors
Costa Mesa, California, April 18, 2006 - Micro Digital, Inc. announces the immediate availability of SMX® RTOS for the Atmel AT91RM9200, AT91SAM7A1, and AT91SAM7S processors.
Micro Digital is supporting the Atmel processors with the IAR Embedded Workbench®. The core of SMX RTOS is the smx real-time multitasking kernel. With the release is smxAware™ that extends the IAR debugger to display smx kernel objects, queues, and diagnostic information. Also included is smx Graphical Analysis Tool that displays task, ISR, and LSR timelines, processor usage, and task stack usage. The smxBSP™ for the Atmel processor family provides startup code and board support functions for smx and provides a UART driver for this family of processors. Other Micro Digital products will soon be available for these processors.
An Ethernet driver for use with the AT91RM9200 on-chip Ethernet controller has been completed. This driver will work with the smxNS™ TCP/IP stack. Work is also in progress on supporting the USB device controller on the AT91RM9200 and AT91SAM7S chips for the smxUSBD device stack. The USB host controller on the AT91RM9200 is already supported by the smxUSBH host stack, since it is OHCI compatible.
