* Enhanced networking
o TCP IPv6 with IPv4 ( )
o SNMP v1, 2c, 3 ( )

* NAND Flash File system ( )

* Graphics ( )

* Remedy Tools
o Time Analyzer ( )
o Bootloader ( )
which take connectivity and system analysis to a new level.

“RoweBots Unison 5.2 Operating System has a comprehensive feature set with excellent performance, reliability and documentation,” said Miguel Morales, the worldwide Stellaris marketing manager. He went on to say: “Combined with Stellaris MCUs and other TI embedded processors, Unison allows developers to get to market very quickly with minimal integration, rework, retraining, development. and testing.”

Unison OS on SOC MCUs are well suited to a broad set of applications including home and building automation, medical devices, industrial automation, energy management and networking applications. Unison increases embedded development productivity and reliability by substantially reducing the time and difficulty required to develop complex systems. OEM developers can create improved applications with standard reusable components supported by the Unison product, MCUs and a variety of integrated development environment (IDE) tools.

Unison’s open standards, ultra tiny size, modularity and lack of GPL contamination are the key features which substantially reduce system development risk, cost and time. OEMs can use the industry’s preferred operating system APIs and still utilize tiny low cost MCUs without fear of contaminating their applications, doing extensive optimization, retraining their staff and redeveloping existing POSIX and Linux applications.

The Unison ultra-tiny Linux offering provides seamless support including:
* Integrated embedded OS with complete documentation
* Full POSIX and Linux capabilities to minimize training and porting costs
* A tiny footprint to minimize processor size
* Risk mitigation using standards and standard tests
* Free development and Free deployment
* Free source code
* Comprehensive off-the-shelf I/O
* Seamless integration with four standard IDEs
* Indemnification
* GPL Free
* Seamless migration between MCU products without code changes
* Low-cost Commercial licenses.

Lost time to market, customers disappointed with product quality, and missed product price points are three of the biggest problems OEM developers must overcome. Unison solves these problems using open standards and open source technology without GPL contamination. Learn more at .
