IT Toolbox Article: AWS’s RISC-V Support Now Available For FreeRTOS Kernel For Creating IoT Applications

By February 27, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

RISC-V support is now available in the FreeRTOS kernel, a feature enabling embedded developers to create IoT applications on the officially supported FreeRTOS kernel for microcontrollers that use the free, open and extensible RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).
Now developers have the flexibility to create applications that are portable across any FreeRTOS kernel-supported device and architecture. RISC-V support in the FreeRTOS kernel is available for any RISC-V microcontroller that uses the base ISA, and there are preconfigured examples for OpenISA’s VEGAboard, QEMU emulator for SiFive’s HiFive board, and Antmicro’s Renode emulator for the Microchip M2GL025 Creative Board.
FreeRTOS is the de facto real time operating system for small, low-power devices. The FreeRTOS kernel has been an MIT-licensed AWS open source project since 2017.
