FreeRTOS AWS Reference Integrations
The latest AWS reference integration projects are now available for download, and use FreeRTOS LTS libraries.
Real-time operating system for microcontrollers
Developed in partnership with the world’s leading chip companies over a 15-year period, and now downloaded every 170 seconds, FreeRTOS is a market-leading real-time operating system (RTOS) for microcontrollers and small microprocessors. Distributed freely under the MIT open source license, FreeRTOS includes a kernel and a growing set of IoT libraries suitable for use across all industry sectors. FreeRTOS is built with an emphasis on reliability and ease of use.
With proven robustness, tiny footprint, and wide device support, the FreeRTOS kernel is trusted by world-leading companies as the de facto standard for microcontrollers and small microprocessors.
Accelerate time to market
With detailed pre-configured demos and Internet of Things (IoT) reference integrations, there is no need to determine how to setup a project. Quickly download, compile, and get to market faster.
Broad ecosystem support
Our partner ecosystem provides a breadth of options including community contributions, professional support, as well as integrated IDE and productivity tools.
Predictability of long term support
FreeRTOS offers feature stability with long term support (LTS) releases. FreeRTOS LTS libraries come with security updates and critical bug fixes for two years. Maintained by AWS for the benefit of the FreeRTOS community.
Tiny, power-saving kernel
Scalable size, with usable program memory footprint as low as 9KB. Some architectures include a tick-less power saving mode
Support for 40+ architectures
One code base for 40+ MCU architectures and 15+ toolchains, including the latest RISC-V and ARMv8-M (Arm Cortex-M33) microcontrollers
A growing number of add-on libraries used across all industry sectors, including secure local or cloud connectivity
AWS Reference Integrations
Take advantage of tested examples that include all the libraries essential to securely connect to the cloud
- FreeRTOS AWS reference integrations now include FreeRTOS 202012.01 LTS libraries

- Secure OTA Updates for Cortex-M Devices with FreeRTOS
IoT devices are getting rapid adoption in every market segment and becoming a major target for cyberattacks. A significant proportion of attacks on IoT devices happens due to a lack of software updates once commissioned in the field or updates done insecurely. Cyber attackers often target vulnerabilities in outdated software components to take control of […]Read more…
- Introducing the FreeRTOS Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) Github Branch
With processes shrinking and approaching the limits of physics, in the last decade we have all got used to multicore chips of increasing complexity and performance extending Moore’s law in our desktops and laptops. In embedded control, where cost, size and robustness demands often take precedence over performance, it seems the time for multicore has […]Read more…
- FreeRTOS 202104.00 includes new managed OTA and MQTT capabilities for IoT applications
FreeRTOS version 202104.00 includes managed AWS IoT Over-the-Air update (OTA) and coreMQTT Agent libraries, and the AWS IoT Device Defender custom metrics feature. Developers can use these libraries to remotely update IoT device firmware, manage IoT device fleets, and monitor IoT device fleet metrics. These libraries have been optimized for modularity and memory usage for […]Read more…
