SEGGER Microcontroller Systems, Gardner, MA, introduced emPack, a complete operating system for IoT devices and embedded systems. It is delivered in source code for 8-, 16-, and 32-bit microcontrollers and microprocessors, and is optimized for a small memory footprint. It fits onto typical microcontrollers without requiring external memory. Components are written in plain C and can be compiled by standard ANSI/ISO C compilers. All components work seamlessly together and are continuously tested on a variety of microcontrollers from different vendors. Switching to a different microcontroller, even with a different core, requires minimal changes. Because all components work together through well-defined interfaces, existing projects that already have a mandated RTOS can use emPack's components by simply customizing a small number of operating system adaptation functions.
