The Zephyr microPlatform is a complete software platform for developing an updatable, connected microcontroller-based device.
Key features include:
- Secure bootloader (MCUboot)
- Built-in OTA update ability
- Zephyr RTOS
- Secure networking and communications stacks
- Device and peripheral drivers
- Sample applications
The Foundries.io Zephyr microPlatform is based on the Zephyr RTOS, the "Linux kernel of microcontrollers". Zephyr is a scalable, cross-architecture RTOS for constrained devices, designed for security and with built-in Internet connectivity.
Combining the Zephyr and Linux microPlatforms you have everything you need to build, test, and deploy complete end-to-end software for IoT products.
Foundries.io integrates the microPlatform software itself, reference hardware, and additional tools to provide an end-to-end, open source reference system that you can use while developing your product. Using this software, which is provided with the microPlatforms and continuously tested by Foundries.io, you can securely publish sensor data from devices to the fog or cloud, receive commands or data back, and perform over-the-air updates to your devices and applications. Both public and private clouds are supported.
