Arduino and Runtime introduce Apache Mynewt to Arduino ecosystem

Complementary open-source hardware and software solution simplifies IoT development

San Mateo, CA -- Arduino S.r.L. and Runtime today announced the introduction of the Apache Mynewt (incubating) open source operating system (OS). Apache Mynewt is a composable OS for 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) that enables a variety of embedded devices, providing developers with a commercial-ready OS that can run on these smaller, inexpensive processors.

Benefits to developers include access to source code; debugging through setting breakpoints, avoiding stack smashes, and eliminating stolen interrupts; direct access to peripherals for granular power control; precise configurability of concurrent connections; and    flexibility across central and peripheral roles.

“We’re pleased to see a truly open source operating system for our 32-bit MCU product line that can bridge the gap from prototype-to-product,” said Federico Musto, CEO & President of Arduino S.r.L. “IoT developers and Makers of all ages value ease-of-use and innovation that is fueled by Arduino’s thriving open source community. We continue to provide ease-of-use, now with the option of a modern OS underpinning, along with commercial support for large numbers of smart IoT applications.”

Apache Mynewt version 0.9.0 is now available for download at http://mynewt.apache.org/download/ and supported on the following development boards:
