Scalable, real-time operating system (RTOS) for embedded devices.
NXP is a founding member of The Zephyr™ Project, a collaborative effort to develop an open source, scalable, and robust RTOS optimized for resource-constrained embedded devices and built with security in mind.
NXP offers a variety of evaluation and prototyping platforms that are supported by the easy-to-use Zephyr OS. Developers are able to easily tailor a solution to meet their needs using a true open source project with hardware, developer tools, and sensor and device drivers. Security enhancements with Zephyr OS enable the simple implementation of device management, connectivity stacks, and file systems.
