Micro Digital Inc. has announced the SMX real-time operating system (RTOS) support for the Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processors from Texas Instruments (TI). According to the company, the SMX RTOS support allows developers to get their projects off to a quick start with the middleware and drivers needed for many of the on-chip peripherals, as well as a graphical debug tool that helps programmers solve problems quickly. Developers also benefit from extensive error checking and diagnostics in the software, added the firm.

The Sitara AM335x ARM processor generation is based on the ARM Cortex-A8 core. It has a rich set of peripherals including Ethernet MAC, USB controllers, MMC/SD card controller and LCD controller. It operates up to 1GHz, with up to 128KB on-chip SRAM.

Included in the SMX RTOS out-of-the-box support package are: smx preemptive real-time multitasking kernel, smxWiFi 802.11a/b/g/i/n wireless stack, smxUSBH USB host stack, smxUSBD USB device stack, smxNS TCP/IP stack, smxNS6 dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack, smxFS FAT file system with MMC/SD card driver, smxAware kernel-aware plug-in for IAR C-Spy and GoFast IEEE 754 floating point library. Full support, including project files and demo code, is provided for IAR's Embedded Workbench for ARM toolsuite.

SMX for Sitara AM335x ARM processors is available for purchase and includes full source code, 90 days of technical support and no per-seat charges. All of Micro Digital's software is royalty-free and sold with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
