RTOS streamlines memory usage for embedded systems

May 23, 2006

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Pumpkin, Inc. announces the availability of Salvo supporting Luminary Micro's Stellaris family of microcontrollers, featuring the ARM® Cortex(TM)-M3 microcontroller core. Salvo is a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) designed expressly for very-low-cost embedded systems using microcontrollers with on-chip flash and RAM memory. Salvo is designed to minimize system cost by efficiently using that memory, with typical applications using only 1-2 kilobytes of flash and 200-400 bytes of RAM for Salvo.

Salvo is optimized to be scalable, easy to learn, and highly configurable, and provides the power, speed and flexibility of an RTOS for low-cost embedded designs. Salvo Lite, a freeware/evaluation version of Salvo, is included in Luminary Micro's Stellaris Development Kits. Salvo Lite supports up to four tasks and five events, enabling development of real Salvo applications and the ability to test Salvo in a real end-user environment. Salvo for ARM is available in Lite, LE and Pro versions. Salvo is royalty-free, and Salvo Pro includes source code.
