Siemens brings ReadyStart RTOS to RISC-V
Siemens Digital Industries Software has expanded its Nucleus ReadyStart program to the RISC-V architecture with the aim of supporting projects focused on delivering cloud-connected devices.
Nucleus ReadyStart for RISC-V incorporates integrated software, IP, tools and services into a single package suited for applications that need the combination of a small device footprint coupled with connectivity, and deterministic performance. Siemens said the bundle is ideal for device manufacturers targeting the aerospace, automotive, industrial, medical, and general embedded industries.
“Nucleus ReadyStart for RISC-V addresses the requirements needed for today’s advanced and secure edge-to-cloud devices with proven technology,” said Scot Morrison, vice president and general manager, for embedded platform solutions at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Providing a robust and integrated solution for RISC-V devices is critical for embedded developers today, especially with the competitive pressures to deliver innovative devices with shortened time-to-market and cost constraints.
The Nucleus ReadyStart for RISC-V package includes support for symmetric multiprocessing and POSIX application interfaces as well as a debug agent, and OpenSSL security protocols using the wolfSSL library. Users can also connect their device to the cloud with the Nucleus IoT Framework Add-on which supports several cloud services and providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Siemens own MindSphere industrial-IoT service.
Siemens is an active member of the RISC-V Alliance and has been involved in its development and adoption since 2019.
