High Performance, Wi-Fi Enabled Module For IoT Development Is Powered By Amazon FreeRTOS

Posted by Industry News on

Embedded Artists - LPC54018 IoT module

The LPC54018 IoT module, developed by NXP in partnership with Embedded Artists, represents a self-contained, high performance, Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller module for development of products powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Module is CE and FCC certified.

The LPC54018 IoT module can be used standalone or plugged into the IoT Module baseboard for rapid product development and prototyping.

Developers can choose to use debug probes from partners SEGGER or P&E Micro, or the LPC-Link2 debug probe from Embedded Artists and NXP.

Amazon Web Services - AWS

The LPC54018 IoT module is Amazon FreeRTOS enabled, ready for use in designs powered by AWS. Amazon FreeRTOS is an open-source MCU operating system built on the FreeRTOS kernel, offers developers a universal connection to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.

Amazon FreeRTOS (a:FreeRTOS) is an operating system for microcontrollers that makes small, low-power edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure, connect, and manage. Amazon FreeRTOS is based on the FreeRTOS kernel, a popular open source operating system for microcontrollers, and extends it with software libraries that make it easy to securely connect your small, low-power devices to AWS cloud services like AWS IoT Core or to more powerful edge devices running AWS Greengrass.

Using the FreeRTOS Real Time Kernel - Standard Edition

FreeRTOS is a truly free (even for commercial applications) small footprint, portable, preemptive, open source, real time kernel that has been designed specifically for use on embedded microcontrollers. With more than 77,500 downloads during 2009 - FreeRTOS has become one of the most popular real time kernels available. 

This book is a concise, step by step, 'hands on' tutorial guide to using the FreeRTOS real time kernel. It describes both general multitasking programming concepts and FreeRTOS specifics by presenting and explaining numerous examples that are written using the FreeRTOS API. Full source code for all the examples is provided in an accompanying .zip file. 

The standard edition includes sixteen examples that can be built using the free and open source Open Watcom compiler, and the resulting executable will run in both a Windows command prompt and in the free and open source DOSBox DOS emulator. This allows readers to experiment with the code without having to first purchase any special tools or hardware. This book is a step by step 'hands on' guide. It does not contain a complete API reference. An API reference manual is available in a separate document.
