It is Real-Time Operating System for Internet of Things Devices.RTOS opens call for developers to help advance project for the smallest footprint IoT devices. Early support for the Zephyr Project includes Intel Corporation (including its acquired business groups Altera Corporation and Wind River), NXP Semiconductors N.V. (including its recent merger with Freescale), Synopsys, Inc. and UbiquiOS Technology Limited. Zephyr Project is inviting others interested in this technology to participate.
Industrial and consumer IoT devices require software that is scalable, secure and enables seamless connectivity. Developers also need the ability to innovate on top of a highly modular platform that easily integrates with embedded devices regardless of architecture. While Linux has proven to be a wildly successful operating system for embedded development, some IoT devices require an RTOS that addresses the very smallest memory footprints. This complements real-time Linux, which excels at data acquisition systems, manufacturing plants and other time-sensitive instruments and machines that provide the critical infrastructure for some of the world`s most complex computing systems.


Initially supported platforms :

- Arduino 101 (Intel Curie Module containing x86 and Synopsys ARC EM cores)

- Arduino Due (Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 CPU)

- Intel Galileo Gen 2

- NXP FRDM-K64F Freedom board (Kinetis K64F ARM Cortex-M4 MCU)
