Pumpkin Inc. announced the availability of the Salvo real-time operating system (RTOS), which supports Luminary Micro's Stellaris family of microcontrollers. The Salvo RTOS is designed for low-cost embedded systems using microcontrollers with on-chip flash and RAM memory. Salvo's typical applications are said to use 1-2Kbytes of flash and 200-400bytes of RAM.

Salvo Lite, a freeware/evaluation version of Salvo, is included in Luminary Micro's Stellaris development kits. Salvo Lite supports up to four tasks and five events, assisting in the development of real Salvo applications and the ability to test Salvo in a real end-user environment.

"The Stellaris MCUs present a powerful yet low-cost migration path to 32bits from existing 8- and 16bit microcontrollers," said Pumpkin president Andrew E. Kalman. "The Stellaris ARM Thumb-2 based core results in an extremely small Salvo footprint very suitable for multitasking even on the 8Kbyte flash/2Kbyte SRAM LM3S10x MCUs. Salvo runs on the entire Stellaris family of microcontrollers, and the available integrated toolsets enable users to be running with multitasking Salvo applications in just 15 minutes."

Salvo for ARM is available in Lite, LE and Pro versions. Salvo is royalty-free, and Salvo Pro includes source code.
