The Nucleus RTOS makes full use of the memory protection unit on Cortex-M cores to provide protected regions that isolate software modules for dynamic linking and loading. With the Nucleus RTOS Process Model, software can be loaded from system memory as needed, or from cloud based services to upgrade a system, provision the device, or provide fee-based software.

Nucleus RTOS Connectivity: TI WiLink 8 Module Support

Today's complex IoT devices combine multiple wireless connections, driving the need for consolidated wireless solutions that support multiple protocols on a single device. Bringing high-performance wireless connectivity to IoT devices, the Nucleus RTOS supports the TI WiLink 8 combo connectivity solution featuring 2.4 and 5GHz dual-band throughput, WiFi 802.11 capabilities, and dual-mode Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy technology. The enhanced low power features of the WiLink 8 modules are supported with Nucleus RTOS Power Management Framework to optimise power consumption and extend battery life. This pre-integrated solution enables IoT developers to bring to market connected devices with the latest security protocols that support multiple wireless modes in a single chip for medical, industrial and other IoT products.

Nucleus IoT Middleware: Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP)

IoT node devices require low-power solutions to interface with cloud-based services supporting the latest IP protocols. The Nucleus RTOS makes use of CoAP to bridge IoT nodes that are power constrained or have limited system resources as yet require cloud access. Utilising IP standards, the Nucleus RTOS with CoAP provides a RESTful-based framework with DTLS for security and UDP over IP for transport, making it efficient to cloud services.
