HCC-Embedded today announced the release of its full suite of embedded middleware for Freescale’s ‘K’ series Cortex based microcontrollers.

  • Suite includes fail-safe file systems, NAND/NOR Flash Management, USB Host & Device and MISRA-compliant TCP/IP.
  • Compatible with Freescale Tower System Development Platform and all relevant compilers.
  • Seamless integration with most commercial RTOSes, including MQX, FreeRTOS and ‘no-RTOS’ based applications.

HCC’s middleware suite brings a whole new layer of software capability to Freescale’s advanced Kinetis family. Engineers can now quickly and easily integrate HCC’s advanced middleware with all Kinetis peripherals and storage media. HCC middleware is designed to complement most commercial and free RTOS solutions by providing the kind of performance and range of features that can only be achieved by specialization.

Highlights Include:

Flash Storage: HCC’s SafeFTL (Flash Translation Layer) enables truly fail-safe management of any NAND/NOR with hardware support for hundreds of flash devices, including internal flash, serial flash and large arrays of NAND flash.

USB Device & Host: With support for all speeds, endpoints and transfer types, HCC’s USB offers a broad range of class drivers. This includes support for media interfaces such as printers, cameras and audio and a sophisticated range of interfaces to Ethernet and storage media.

Fail-safe File Systems: HCC offers a range of file systems to ensure that it is possible to achieve the highest performance or to work efficiently within limited resources. Developers can choose either fully FAT-compatible systems or systems with proprietary file structures.  This means that engineers can cope with any demands with minimum fuss and high confidence.

MISRA-Compliant TCP/IP: a compact, high-quality, high-performance stack that reduces the risk and cost of using complex software in critical systems.  It is implemented with a strongly typed subset of the ‘C’ language that com-plies with the MISRA-C:2004 standard.
