The Zephyr™ Project is a scalable real-time operating system (RTOS) supporting multiple hardware architectures. The Zephyr vision is to be the best-in-class RTOS for connected resource-constrained devices, built with security and safety in mind. As a Linux Foundation hosted Collaboration Project, Zephyr is an open source cooperative effort uniting leaders from across the industry.
The Zephyr Project’s goal is to establish a neutral project where silicon vendors, OEMs, ODMs, ISVs, and OSVs can contribute technology to reduce the cost and accelerate time to market for developing the billions of devices that will make up the majority of the Internet of Things.
The Zephyr Project is perfect for building everything from simple connected sensors, LED wearables, up to modems and small wireless gateways. Because the Zephyr OS is modular and supports multiple architectures, developers can easily tailor an optimal solution to meet their needs. As a true open source project, the community can evolve Zephyr to support new hardware, developer tools, sensors and device drivers. Enhancements in security, device management capabilities, connectivity stacks and file systems can be easily implemented.
