STMicroelectronics Collaborates with Amazon Web Services on Complete STM32-Based IoT Node-to-Cloud Solution for Amazon FreeRTOS
Amazon FreeRTOS availability for STM32 platform assures IoT node design to highest quality and security standard for AWS
Amazon FreeRTOS provides everything one needs to easily and securely deploy microcontroller-based connected devices and develop an IoT application without having to worry about the complexity of scaling across millions of devices. Once connected, IoT device applications can take advantage of all of the capabilities the cloud has to offer or continue processing data locally with AWS Greengrass.
ST's collaboration with AWS speeds designers' efforts to create easily connectable IoT nodes with the combination of ST's semiconductor building blocks and Amazon FreeRTOS, which extends the leading free and open-source real-time operating-system kernel for embedded devices (FreeRTOS) with the appropriate libraries for local networking, cloud connectivity, security, and remote software updates.
"At AWS, we always work to simplify solutions for customers. We believe the addition of Amazon FreeRTOS to our existing suite of IoT services will accelerate the development of new IoT-enabled microcontroller-based devices and provide a straightforward path for device manufacturers to secure and maintain their products," said Dirk Didascalou, Vice President of IoT,
For the STM32, one of the industry's most popular family of 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M microcontrollers, ST's modular and interoperable IoT development platform spans state-of-the-art semiconductor components, ready-to-use development boards, free software tools, and common application examples. At the official release of Amazon FreeRTOS, a version of the OS and libraries are immediately available to run on the ultra-low-power STM32L4 series of microcontrollers.
The starter kit for Amazon FreeRTOS is ST's B-L475E-IOT01A Discovery kit for IoT node, a fully integrated development board that exploits low-power communication, multiway sensing, and a raft of features provided by the STM32L4 series microcontroller to enable a wide range of IoT-capable applications. The Discovery kit's support for
"By collaborating with AWS, ST now provides developers with a manageable, secure, and scalable turnkey solution to build quality IoT nodes on the field-proven STM32 running Amazon FreeRTOS," said
