Synopsys Inc. has unleashed the embARC Open Software Platform to help expedite the development of DesignWare ARC processor-based embedded systems. According to the company, the platform provides ARC software developers online access to an extensive suite of free and open-source software that simplifies the development of code for the Internet of Things (IoT) and other embedded applications.

Device drivers, operating systems and middleware ported to and optimised for ARC processors are available for download without cost from the website. The website also gives access to software development tools and documentation as well as user forums to facilitate the sharing of information and expertise among the ARC-based design community.

Drivers, Operating Systems and Middleware

Pre-ported drivers for the GPIO, UART, SPI, I2C and other peripherals as well as leading real-time operating systems (RTOS), including FreeRTOS and Contiki OS, give developers a choice of industry-standard software environments for their ARC-based systems. FreeRTOS is a scalable, compact and reliable operating system that is popular among embedded software developers, stated the company. The Contiki OS is specifically designed for networked, memory-constrained systems such as low-power, wireless IoT applications.

The embARC platform provides a choice of middleware components and a robust starting point for the development of IoT-related devices. The components available for FreeRTOS include the TCP/IP stack lwIP, file system fatfs, and MQTT and libcoap IoT protocols. The Contiki OS includes a middleware package with an integrated IoT protocol stack including MQTT, a publish/subscribe messaging protocol for lightweight M2M communications, and the CoAP application layer protocol for resource-constrained IoT applications.
