SEGGER presents an embOS port for the Renesas Electronics’ automotive RH850 MCU Family. The efficiency of embOS complements the high-performance and very low power consumption characteristics that are inherent within RH850 MCUs. The embOS port comes with board support packages for all popular Renesas RH850 MCUs plus their related evaluation boards.

These packages run direct out of-the-box without the need for additional configuration or setup. Included in the support items is a project for the IAR EWRH850 workbench.

The embOS for RH850 offering includes the embOS manual, which can be used as a reference for the embOS API and describes all the RTOS basics for engineers who are not yet familiar with an embedded RTOS. Furthermore, embOS is fully MISRA-C:2012 compliant, thus proving the quality of the embOS source code and facilitating its utilisation in demanding automotive environments.

“With the introduction of embOS for our RH850 Family, SEGGER shows their expertise in creating highly-efficient software. It enables our customers to benefit from low memory footprints, thus leaving more room for the actual application. It also delivers highly predictable performance, which enables real-time applications”, says Hans-Michael Loch, Senior Manager for Support in the Automotive Business Group at Renesas Electronics Europe.

”Renesas RH850 is a very flexible and scalable automotive-optimised MCU solution. With similar attributes and equally high degrees of operational performance, it is clear that embOS and RH850 are very well matched together.” adds Til Stork Product Manager embOS at SEGGER.
