DeviceTone Joins Linux Foundation’s Zephyr Project

Contributes to a collaborative effort to build a secure, open source real-time operating system for the Internet of Things

Portland, Oregon; Boston, MA – Technology company DeviceTone™ announced today that they have joined the Linux Foundation’s Zephyr Project™ to contribute to the evolution of an open source real-time operating system (RTOS) for the Internet of Things.

DeviceTone simplifies connected product development by empowering companies with tools that unlock business value in world being reshaped by IoT. It delivers a highly customizable client for smart connected products and secure remote management tools that give companies the ability to manage those connected devices one to one, millions at a time.

DeviceTone joins Intel, Linaro, Nordic Semiconductor, NXP, Synposys, Oticon, Runtime.io, Texas Instruments, and Vancouver Hack Space in this growing open source community.

Zephyr is a small, scalable, real-time operating system which has been designed specifically for the Internet of Things and resource constrained devices. With its modular design, IoT solutions can be created to meet any devices’ needs despite the architecture that is being used, therefore maximizing connectivity to other devices and to the cloud. Its dynamic development tools make customizing its capabilities simple while principally, keeping all devices secure.

An RTOS is intended to serve real-time applications that process data as it comes in, typically without buffer delays, perfect for IoT devices with small footprints.

“The DeviceTone team is incredibly excited to join the Zephyr Project as active contributors,” said Eliav Gnessin, CTO of DeviceTone, “Our initial focus will be to extend Zephyr’s native networking stack to LoRa and ULE to help increase Zephyr’s versatility.”

Other members of the Zephyr project include Cloud of Things, Intel, Linaro, Nordic Semiconductor, NXO, Oticon, Runtime.io, Synopsys, Texas Instruments and Vancouver Hack Space.
