The Eclipse Foundation to Highlight Open Innovation at embedded world 2024

BRUSSELS, Belgium, April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, one of the world’s largest open source foundations, is set to unveil its latest open source innovations at this year’s embedded world Exhibition & Conference, taking place in Nuremberg from 9-11 April 2024. The foundation will be presenting talks on multiple embedded topics, while also highlighting new open source technologies, including a safety-certified real-time operating system (RTOS), industrial grade RISC-V CPU IP, and Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV) innovations.

“Embedded computing, the bedrock of today’s digital economy, thrives on open source technologies,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “The Eclipse Foundation is experiencing remarkable growth across various aspects of embedded innovation, spanning IoT, edge computing, and our Software Defined Vehicle initiatives. We’re particularly excited to showcase the first release of Eclipse ThreadX at this year’s Embedded World.”

The First Release of Eclipse ThreadX
Eclipse ThreadX, formerly Azure RTOS, is the world's first open source, safety-certified real-time operating system (RTOS). ThreadX is a new addition to the world of open source, having recently become a project at the Eclipse Foundation after its transition from Microsoft. embedded world 2024 serves as the launchpad for the debut release of ThreadX under the stewardship of the Eclipse Foundation. Eclipse ThreadX v6.4.1 is available under the permissive MIT licence. You can download it and its subcomponents from GitHub.

Innovation for Software-Defined Vehicles
The Eclipse SDV team will showcase groundbreaking business use cases with SDV Blueprints, spotlighting advancements in insurance, fleet management, and software orchestration. These initiatives represent a collaborative effort across more than 20 automotive open source projects, highlighting a collective effort to push the boundaries of software-defined vehicles.

Industrial-Grade, Open Source RISC-V CPU Technology
The OpenHW Group will be demonstrating its latest cores based on RISC-V open source technology. The CVA6, CVE4, and CVE2 cores exemplify the pinnacle of open source innovation and adoption in the embedded industry.

Cutting-Edge Research and New Open Source Projects
The Eclipse Research team will uneil four new projects that are advancing the future of technology:

  • CODECO, a cognitive, cross-layer, and highly adaptive Edge-Cloud management framework
  • TRISTAN, an industrialisation of the European RISC-V ecosystem that is capable of competing with existing commercial alternatives
  • TRANSACT, a universal, distributed solution architecture for the transformation of security-critical cyber-physical systems
  • NEPHELE, a reliable and secure end-to-end orchestration of hyper-distributed applications on a programmable infrastructure.

Advancing European Technology Leadership with Eclipse Aidge
With the backing of CEA List, the Eclipse Aidge project stands out as a testament to European and French technological leadership. It embodies the successful transition from academic research to real-world applications, showcasing the symbiotic relationship between academia and embedded industry.
