Developing embedded applications for uClinux platforms

Dec 7, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Storyboard targets a variety of operating systems for embedded UI development across a range of microcontrollers and microprocessors. For many developers, Linux is the OS of choice for development for MPU targets. What about for MCUs? We see a lot of RTOS options, but where does Linux fit in the MCU world? One option is uClinux.

As a variation of the Linux kernel, uClinux targets microcontrollers and provides a compelling OS alternative to developers building applications for MCU platforms who are accustomed to developing for Linux-based MPU targets. uClinux benefits from the extensive support for components and communication found in Linux and is a robust and versatile OS for a range of embedded products.

Storyboard Suite supports uClinux as a target OS and is showcased in our latest demo image for the NXP RT1050.

EmCraft, one of the biggest boosters for uClinux on MCUs, offers a variety of Cortex-M-based modules with uClinux BSPs, including the STM32F7 System-On-Module which can be seen in this application that EmCraft developed in Storyboard Suite.
