Embox is a configurable operating system designed for resource constrained and embedded systems.
Embox main idea is using Linux software everywhere including MCUs.
What does it mean?
Imagine, you need a single application in the embedded system, but you want to use some libraries (Qt, OpenCV, etc). In the Linux case, you need high-performance hardware. In Embox case you can use the software as bare-metal including the only required system parts.
In the other words, Embox is util which allows creating a special distributive for your exact purpose. Although there are kernel, network, file system, standard POSIX library etc. you can accurately configure every module. Therefore it will include only those parts that you wish.
- use low power hardware
- use boards with small resources
- use existing software
- develop your software on Linux
- care less about security because static linking disables executing external software
- VoIP phone on STM32F7Discovery based on PJSIP project
- Qt on STM32F7Discovery
- OpenCV on STM32F769i board
- A lot of programming languages available: Python, Lisp, Java (phoneme), TCL, Ruby, Lua
- SSHD based on Dropbear project
- telnetd, httpd
- zeromq, qpid
