WATERLOO, Canada (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — RoweBots Research Inc. announces and releases the Unison Operating System Version 5 for the ST Microelectronics (NYSE:STM) STM32. Using Unison with STM32, OEM developers can deliver intelligence for any OEM device at a fraction of previous development costs.

The Unison Operating System offers an ultra tiny embedded POSIX environment for STM32 microcontroller (MCU) based development which is also Linux compatible. Unison’s open system environment enables users to migrate tens of thousands of programs from larger systems to the Unison real-time operating system (RTOS) to save time and reduce development costs. More importantly, this open approach reduces time to market.

Unison supports lean product development and for the first time, STM32 users can develop all embedded products on common POSIX application programming interfaces (APIs) without wasting significant resources. This common POSIX API reduces training time, eliminates rework and facilitates reuse of software components directly reducing development time, costs and risk.

Unison’s modular architecture and innovative implementation allow STM32 users to reduce resource requirements for applications compared to embedded Linux. By reducing the resource requirements, users can now port Linux applications to STM32 and quickly have capabilities that were not possible before.

Unison achieves reduced time to market, elimination of training, a common lean development platform, reusable components, and reduced resource requirements. All of these elements lead directly to increased profits.

Unison V5 offers the following features on STM32:
* Web Server with CGI, Security and Authentication.
* Advanced networking.
* Kernel Enhancements.
* FAT12/16/32 File Systems.
* Flash File System support with uSD, SD and MMC.
* Other I/O.
* RTOS Viewer Tools.
* Supports the full STM32 line.

Intelligent devices based on STM32 can be developed quickly and can run anywhere. Applications include home appliances, networks, clean tech, lighting, HVAC and power generation systems, automotive, medical and industrial control.

Unison is helping build a simpler, friendlier and more energy efficient world.

Unison royalty free licenses are FREE for version 4 and start at $999 for version 5. Both are immediately available.
