IEEE Specs RTOS For IoT Microprocessors

IEEE has releases the IEEE 2050-2018 - Standard for Real-time Operating System (OS) for Small-scale Embedded Systems. The standard follows an agreement announced November 2018 that transferred ownership of the TRON µT-Kernel 2.0 to IEEE-SA and that provided a license to TRON Forum for use of the intellectual property.

 

IEEE 2050 is anticipated to greatly expand development and global utilization of the specification already sourced by more than 12,000 licensed IoT manufacturers and others worldwide. The TRON Project, launched in 1984 by Prof. Ken Sakamura, aims to build an open architecture for embedded systems. Rather than imposing a closed ecosystem of hardware and software requirements, its founders have defined a set of interfaces that ensure broad interoperability between the various devices supplied by different vendors.
