EUROS available now for Renesas´s RX microcontroller

Sep 19, 2018

The company EUROS Embedded Systems, a Gold Alliance Partner of the Renesas corporation, announces the availability of its Real-Time Operating System EUROS including the eclipse based Stand-Alone Cross Development Environment EUROS Embedded Studio® for the next generation of Renesas's 32bit microcontroller type RX63N.

The RX63N is a powerful microcontroller, which runs at up to 100 MHz and has a CPU performance up to 165 DMIPS. It has 256KB RAM and 32KB Flash ROM and offers a wide range of peripheral controllers like CAN, I2C, PDC, watchdog timer, CRC, etc. The RX63N microcontroller has also a built-in USB 2.0 full-speed (Function/Host/OTG) functionality and an AES - data encryption unit.

Especially for the Starter Kit RSK RX63N in combination with the RSK ComsBoard (Ethernet and USB Application Board) and the TFT LCD extension, EUROS Embedded Systems offers all needed device driver packages, graphics libraries and network protocols like serial, SPI, I2C, Ethernet, TCP/IP, USB, PPP, FTP, SNMP, SMTP and many more.

Also the Eclipse-based IDE EUROS Embedded Studio ® has been adatepted to the RX63N-microcontroller. It allows an individual, application-specific and fully automatic configuration of the system software and offers a range of additional development tools - such as graphical components configurator, real-time tracing, static code analysis, code coverage, RTOS-awareness, etc., which significantly support and facilitate the development of embedded applications.

EUROS Bare-Metal-solution for Cortex M3

Sep 19, 2018

EUROS Embedded Systems GmbH offers now a cost-effective solution based on a Cortex M3 microcontroller complemented with a cross-development environment and complete system software.

This solution is a result from the long-term cooperation with the Korean semiconductor manufacturer, the company ABOV Semiconductor, and is built around an optimized 32-bit Cortex M3 microcontroller, specifically designed to facilitate the development of drive control applications. Besides this, the offered  one-chip microcontroller of type AC33M8128 is very well suited for controlling of small systems like kitchen appliances, coffee machines, Internet of Things or medical devices  and is characterized by a very low power consumption. The microcontroller operates at max. 75MHz and features 128KB Flash and 12KB RAM. Besides timer and PWM functionality, UART, SPI and I2C communication channels are also available. The full range of debugger connections to the target system including JTAG, SWD, FPB, DWT, ITM, TPIU and ETM is provided as well. A starter kit based on the selected microcontroller is also available.

Especially for the AC33M8128 microcontroller EUROS provides all necessary driver packages and network protocols in a so-called bare-metal version, e.g. without the overhead of a conventional real-time operating system. In addition, the Eclipse-based EUROS Embedded Studio® takes over the role of the cross-development environment and enables at the click of a button the automatic generation of tailor-made system software. The target system can be connected either using the real-time debug agent EUROSrda or via a JTAG adapter including ETM functionality.

EUROS concludes a partnership with the companies Vector Software and Polarion

Sep 19, 2018

Besides functional requirements, in the case of critical embedded applications, the demands on security requirements have been dramatically increased recently. The system integrity especially against external influences, sabotage or espionage must be also fully guaranteed. 

In order to meet all those requirements, e.g. increasing both functional safety and security level and in the same time reducing the risk for embedded applications, a certification process according to the IEC 61508 Ed. 2 (SIL3) and IEC 62443 standards was initiated within our company, the EUROS Embedded Systems GmbH. Currently, the certification of the Real-Time Operating System EUROS as the first real-time operating system for both "Safety" and "Security" is being finalized. As auditor the company TÜV Süd was chosen.

In the course of our IEC 61508 SIL 3 certification process we teamed up with the companies Vector Software and Polarion Software, in order to achieve the stringent requirements on functional safety and security in embedded systems.

Based on the gained expertise throughout this process,  we can help our customers to significantly accelerate the certification of their own application using the already well-established and proven automated test environment based on the VectorCAST Suite of the company Vector Software, which has been integrated under EUROS. Thus, V-model-compliant Unit Tests, Integration Tests, System Tests and Code Coverage can be easily generated and automated for EUROS-based applications.

For the compilation of the Software Requirements for both development and test purposes we recommend the tool Polarion of the company Polarion Software. If Model Driven development, including corresponding  code generation is required, a Domain Specific languages solution of the company MetaCase can be also offered.
