Project Nurtures IoT Ecosystem

Six additional members have joined the Zephyr Project, an open-source group dedicated to creating a safe and secure IoT RTOS. These members include Antmicro, DeviceTone, SiFive, the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, The Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS), and Northeastern University. The project group has also added support for more than 100 developer boards and the addition of six new members

 

Hosted by The Linux Foundation, the Zephyr Project aims to establish a neutral community where silicon vendors, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Original Design Manufacturer (ODMs) and Independent Software Vendor (ISVs) can contribute technology to reduce the cost and accelerate time to market for developing the billions of IoT devices.

TE Connectivity Horticultural Lighting Solutions Available Now from Digi-Key

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.

 

At its launch in 2016, Zephyr was supported on four boards including Arduino 101, Arduino Due, Intel Galileo Gen 2 and the FRDM-K64F Freedom development board from NXP Semiconductors. Zephyr now supports more than 100 boards comprising of different architectures: ARM, x86, ARC, NIOS II, XTENSA, and RISCV32 processor families. A complete list of boards is available.

 

In addition to the new members, the Zephyr technical community recently welcomed Thea Aldrich, a longtime open source participant, as a Project Evangelist and Developer Advocate. She will be an active contributor to the technical roadmap, teaching Zephyr to new developers raising awareness of the project and coordinating communities.
