Overview:
Renesas and Micrium join forces to present this
exciting webinar. As embedded applications continue to add more features, the
software required to run those applications is becoming increasingly complex. At
the same time, many engineering organizations are under tremendous pressure to
get to market faster with more differentiated products. This webinar will
examine software trends in embedded applications and discuss how a Real-Time
Operating System (RTOS) and accompanying middleware stacks for communication and
storage can be leveraged by embedded developers as trusted building blocks.
Freed from having to worry about implementing these non-differentiating
features, developers may now focus more of their energy on making their products
stand out. Details on the extraordinary promotion offer wherein developers using
Renesas RX and RL78 microcontrollers can qualify to receive free production
Micrium RTOS and Middleware as well as free support will be given during the
webinar.

What attendees will learn:
Attendees will learn how to
quickly and easily leverage industry leading microcontroller architectures with
industry leading software for a fast and affordable time to market. The
following topics will be covered:

  • Trends in embedded software
  • What is an RTOS?
  • Why use a Real-Time kernel?
  • Structure of an RTOS
  • Middleware components
    • File Systems
    • TCP/IP
    • USB (Host and Device)
    • CAN
    • Modbus
  • Advantages of Run-Time Monitoring
  • The Power of Two promotion details
