Welcome our newest project members!

The project is pleased to announce that Runtime.io and Nordic Semiconductor have joined as Silver members of Zephyr Project!

The Zephyr Project RTOS

The Zephyr Project RTOS is a recent effort by the Linux Foundation to provide the embedded world with a free, secure and fully-featured Real Time Operating System. It is designed from the ground up to be a modern, scalable, secure and responsive RTOS with a clear focus on IoT protocols and foundations. This open source RTOS is Apache 2.0 licensed and has a fully open development model.

The Zephyr Project development team is excited to announce the release of Zephyr OS v1.6.0! In the three months since our last release, we have added new features and boards, welcomed new developers to our open source community, and been out and about sharing cool Zephyr Project based demos at various trade shows.

Cloud-based continuous integration /klaʊd beɪst kənˈtɪnjʊəs ɪntɪˈɡreɪʃ(ə)n/

a software development practice that pretty much nobody would associate with microcontrollers … 

I found myself last month representing Linaro at the Zephyr booth on the demo area floor in the Maritim Hotel in Berlin for ELC-E. I had a rather unusual microcontroller demo.

It seems like such a long time ago, but it's only been a short month since the Zephyr™Project had a great showing at the OpenIoT Summit and Embedded Linux Conference in Berlin. The conference was as at the Maritim Hotel, a short distance from the historic Berlin Wall. The beautiful fall weather was a perfect complement to the excellent material shared at the conference.

JavaScript* is one of the most widely used programming languages today, and in recent years has jumped from its origins on desktop web browsers to servers with Node.js*. But it can also be useful in the smallest devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) with the JavaScript Runtime for Zephyr™ OS (ZJS) environment. ZJS is based on JerryScript (a lightweight JavaScript engine) and the Zephyr real-time operating system (RTOS). The ZJS project provides a subset of Node.js APIs and JavaScript APIs that employ sensors, actuators, and communications, as well as the tools to build applications with them. The ZJS environment is easy to learn and great for rapid prototyping, especially for developers who have existing JavaScript skills.

Earlier this year, the Zephyr project was launched to a world justifiably skeptical of self-anointed “secure” technologies, jaded by the sloganeering of all things IoT, and seemingly saturated by the proliferation and fragmentation of no-size-fits-all microcontroller RTOS platforms. Given those circumstances it is only reasonable that I find myself asked what we could possibly be thinking in launching a new “secure IoT RTOS platform.” Or, should I say, why are we launching yet another one.
