Renesas and Micrium collaborate with IS2T for RX microcontrollers

Oct 23, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) -- Renesas Electronics America Inc., a provider of semiconductor solutions, and Micrium, Inc, a supplier of embedded software components, have announced a collaboration with IS2T, a producer of software tools for designing smart embedded systems, to offer the MicroEJ Java platforms for Renesas RX microcontrollers, or MCUs.

The collaboration between Renesas, Micrium, and IS2T, offers developers a software strategy based on the "application platform" approach. That approach contributes to expand product ranges, to accelerate specification process, and to improve user experience for markets specifically targeted by the RX product family, such as smart grid, smart metering, smart appliances, building & home automation, and other Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

"Embedded design is becoming more complex as design parameters evolve and demands for quicker time-to-market increase, especially for emerging IoT applications," said Peter Carbone, vice president of Marketing, at Renesas Electronics America. "Working closely with embedded software platform providers like Micrium and IS2T, enhances our ability to provide the flexibility, reliability, scalability and ease of use desired by customers developing the next generation of the IoT and graphical user interfaces with our high-performance, connected RX MCU." "Micrium is proud to build on the success of our 'Power of Two' program with Renesas. As embedded systems gradually move into the IoT market, Micrium's software framework already provides the perfect base for an IoT device." said Christian Legare, Execute vice president and CTO, at Micrium Inc. "Our collaboration with IS2T, allows IS2T MicroEJ Java platforms to run on top of the Micrium kernels, and leverage our RTOS services, including our TCP/IP stack, our File System, and our USB Host and USB Device stacks. The combination of Micrium, Renesas and IS2T is the perfect solution for IoT devices. Using Micrium embedded software components reduces the Total Cost of Ownership and Time-to-Market as described in recent market research." "Renesas provides the broadest MCU/MPU portfolio, combining low power, high performance, range of memory sizes and lots of feature-rich peripherals. Envisioning that more than 60% of total Embedded Development resources are spent on software, Renesas put in place a consistent software strategy to help their customers to reduce the total cost of ownership of embedded systems. The combination of the RX MCUs, the Micrium's firmware, and IS2T MicroEJ application platform provides one of the best value / technical trade-off solutions. Indeed, this collaboration with Renesas and Micrium allows customers to benefit from mature technologies so that they may capitalize their added-value embedded software components across the whole Renesas' MCU/MPU portfolio," said Fred Rivard, PhD, President of IS2T.

The IS2T MicroEJ encompasses the entire embedded software lifecycle management - prototyping, development and testing - powered by simulated development environment representative of the 'target hardware.' The MicroEJ platform works on Micrium RTOS uC/OS-III running on Renesas RX MCU family. The scalability of MicroEJ allows the same application to be developed on a wide range of Renesas MCU/MPU devices, starting with the RX, based on customers' target cost/performance constraints. As part of the MicroEJ platform, IS2T offers a rich, easy-to-use GUI for cost-sensitive MCUs, complementing Renesas RX MCUs with the Direct Drive solution for native graphic LCD support.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
