MQX mini-RTOS comes to 521x ColdFire processors

Bernard Cole -July 10, 2005

The MQX mini-RTOS from MQX Embedded is a new real-time operating system specifically designed for the Freescale ColdFire MCF521x processor family.

The MQX mini-RTOS, licensed on a royalty-free basis, provides a robust, space-efficient platform for designers who use the MCF521x family for entry-level 32-bit projects and to transition from legacy 8-bit and 16-bit processors.

MQX mini-RTOS is tuned specifically for the memory configurations of the MCF521x family and is provided with drivers for its UART, CAN, I2C, and SPI peripherals.

While maintaining API compatibility with the MQX RTOS, the MQX mini-RTOS is pre-configured to create a tightly compact ROM and RAM image by including a chosen feature set and fully utilizing the MQX RTOS lightweight components for speed and for space efficiency. Customers receive full source code for the board support package and included drivers, along with a binary image of the RTOS code.

MQX Embedded products for the MCF521x family work out-of-the-box with the Standard and Professional Editions of the CodeWarrior Development Studio, which provides MQX RTOS-aware and MQX RTCS TCP/IP stack-aware debugging, as well as the complimentary, code-limited Special Edition of the CodeWarrior Development Studio for ColdFire architectures.

MQX mini-RTOS software for the ColdFire 521x family is available for immediate evaluation.
