Micro Digital Announces SMX® RTOS Now Available for Energy Micro EFM32G Microcontrollers
Costa Mesa, California, June 29, 2010 — Micro Digital, Inc. is pleased to offer out-of-the-box SMX RTOS support for Energy Micro EFM32Gxxx microcontrollers. Included are BSP code, smx hard real-time multitasking kernel, smxAware kernel-aware plug-in for IAR C-Spy, and GoFast floating point library for the Thumb-2 instruction set. Full support, including project files and demo code is provided for IAR’s Embedded Work Bench for ARM toolsuite. A free evaluation kit is available to download at www.smxrtos.com/eval.
The EFM32 microcontroller family is ARM Cortex-M3 based. It has a number of energy-saving features, operates up to 32MHz, up to 128 KB flash, up to 90 GPIO pins, assorted peripherals, and hardware AES encryption and decryption. It features five energy management modes, and thus is well-suited for battery-operated devices.
SMX software has been proven to give high performance with small code and RAM footprints. Full support for EWARM and the EFM32 Gecko Development Kit allows programmers to get their projects off to a quick start. smxAware provides the system-level overview that programmers need to track down their problems quickly. SMX also features extensive error checking and error management that help to find bugs quickly and speed products to market.
The GoFast library improves the calculation speed of complex floating point functions by as much as ten times when it runs on the Thumb-2 (Cortex) instruction set.
