(Webinar) Should I care about Zephyr OS? Real Experiences of an RTOS Expert

October 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Over the past decade, embedded microcontrollers have evolved such that the lines between a microcontroller and a complicated applications processor have blurred. With the evolving hardware landscape and challenges in silicon supply, the approach to managing software complexity and portability has also had to evolve. Developing reliable and secure embedded software requires developers to employ tools and technologies to manage this growing complexity. A Real Time Operating System (RTOS) is one tool that can help.

Join NXP on Tuesday, October 12 at 8-9 am PDT for an insightful presentation by Eli Hughes, one of our NXP software experts, as he explains how the open-source Zephyr OS is more than “just an RTOS.” Register here.

We’ll explore Zephyr’s inherent capabilities, along with a number of well-tested facilities that developers can leverage in their pursuit of IoT innovation while managing complexity. In this session, we will investigate what Zephyr is, what it is not, and how it compares to other common RTOS solutions.  Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of what problems Zephyr can solve, how it can accelerate their embedded projects, and be better informed for future discussions around embedded firmware architecture.

What you will learn:

  • What Zephyr is, what it is not
  • How it compares to common RTOS solutions
  • How you can use as little or as much of Zephyr’s ecosystem as you want
  • When to use Zephyr as a light weight kernel for simple task switching, and when to leverage additional features


  • Brendon Slade, Director MCU Ecosystem, NXP
  • Eli Hughes, Professional Support Engineer, NXP
