FreeRTOS Now Available for VORAGO Microcontrollers
The popular FreeRTOS real-time operating system is now available for VORAGO microcontrollers.
FreeRTOS has, over the years, established itself as the market leading real-time operating system and the de-facto standard for microcontrollers and embedded systems. It is easy to use, has a small code footprint and is extremely robust. It is also scalable, well documented and has an excellent support forum.
You can learn more about FreeRTOS at www.freertos.org and you can download an application note and software files at www.voragotech.com/resources.
A short video about FreeRTOS can be viewed here.

New VORAGO Application Note Available
The VA108x0 family of MCUs contains programmable eFuse memory that is useful for board identification, serialization, sensor calibration information, product life tracking or other use cases where a relatively small amount of information is required to be permanently stored. Boot sequence variables can also be set by the eFuse memory.
This application note provides instructions and code to programming the eFuse array using the VORAGO REB1 development board.
Download the application note and the code examples.
VORAGO are pleased to participating in the upcoming SmallSat Symposium in Mountain View, CA, on February 7th - 8th. We will exhibit our SmallSat / CubeSat friendly products and would be delighted to see you there.
Recent Events - ARM TechCon, Santa Clara.
VORAGO recently participated in the ARM TechCon conference in Santa Clara, California. We were delighted with the number of attendees and feedback at our technical presentation "ARM Microcontrollers Designed for Extreme Temperature and Radiation Conditions". We were also able to enjoy meetings with both customers and partners. One of the biggest advantages of developing with an ARM-based architecture is the breadth and depth of support available and these third party companies were out in force at TechCon.
