The Linux Foundation has broken all the barriers of compatibility issues by releasing a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) for Internet of Things devices, dubbed “Zephyr“. This OS enables connected devices to communicate with the same protocol.
The Zephyr project is supported by multiple platforms like NXP Semiconductors, Synopsys, and UbiquiOS Technology and is licensed under Apache 2.0.
- Scalability: Universality of Interconnected devices
- Umbrella Platform: All smart devices could run under a single roof.
- Baby Footprint Kernel: Zephyr kernel can run on 8kb memory devices
- Modularity: Supports to integrate 3rd party modules for additional functions as intended by the developer.
- Licensing: As startups does not have to bother about any licensing clash, as a unique license file would be mailed to everyone.
