Amazon’s FreeRTOS will connect IoT devices



In the slew of announcements made on Wednesday, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a version of a lightweight operating system called Amazon FreeRTOS that is designed to run on small connected devices with severe constraints on processing power.

FreeRTOS was developed by Richard Barry in 2003 (who joined Amazon last year) as an open source real time embedded operating system for those types of devices, and the new version unveiled by AWS Wednesday is designed to extend its IoT and edge computing strategy down to very small devices.

Here’s a description on the official Website:

Developed in partnership with the world’s leading chip companies over a 14 year period, the FreeRTOS kernel is a market leading real time operating system (or RTOS), and the de-facto standard solution for microcontrollers and small microprocessors.
