EnSilica Partners with Micrium

EnSilica, a provider of semiconductor solutions, has partnered with Micrium, a real-time operating system (RTOS) for embedded systems and IoT (Internet of Things) products. This collaboration will combine Micrium’s µC/OS-III ROTS to EnSilica’s family of eSi-RISC processor cores.

EnSilica’s eSi-RISC is a family of configurable and low-power soft processor cores for embedded systems that scale across a wide range of applications and uniquely support both 16-bit and 32-bit configurations. The cores have been extensively silicon proven in a variety of ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) technologies down to 28nm, the company states.

Micrium’s µC/OS-III is a pre-emptive and deterministic multi-tasking RTOS with optional round-robin scheduling. It can be scaled down to contain only the features required for the application, typically 6 to 24 KBytes of code space and 1 KByte of data space.

“Recognized for its unparalleled reliability, performance and dependability, Micrium’s µC/OS-III RTOS is well-respected in the market and is a highly popular choice particularly for safety-critical and risk-averse applications,” said Ian Lankshear, CEO of EnSilica. “Our partnership with Micrium to port µC/OS-III to eSi-RISC, significantly strengthens and further broadens the overall eSi-RISC ecosystem, opening up a whole host of potential new opportunities for our customers while reducing time-to-market and the total cost of embedded development.”
