Stratify OS

A real-time operating system designed to drastically reduce development time

Getting Started

Develop Faster

Stratify OS is a microcontroller operating system designed to bring the software innovation model that has made computers and smartphones enormously successful to microcontroller hardware. Typically, microcontrollers require all the code to be integrated at the source or object code level which is a big pain when developing sophisticated products.

Stratify OS Pre-Installed


Kernel is already built and ready to run on your board.

Stratify OS Architecture

Stratify OS is an app-based microcontroller operating system. The kernel is coded, compiled, and installed separately from the applications. This allows all hardware abstraction to happen at the board support package (BSP) level. Applications then access hardware via the OS. For example, the BSP can implement an I2C driver using peripheral hardware or using a bitbang implementation, and the application can simply access the I2C on the filesystem at "/dev/i2c0" without worrying about any hardware or MCU register details.
