Smarter, tougher, leaner MCUs for the IoT

Guest blog from Christine Young, Blogger, Maxim Integrated

When a smart, connected product can solve a problem in a way that is better than what we already have, that’s when the internet of things (IoT) really shines. For these products to flourish, the underlying microcontrollers (MCUs) must be power efficient, memory-rich, and secure.

Results from the Mbed Developer Survey 2017

Take part in the Mbed Developer 2018 survey here.

When Mbed launched in 2009 - great background post by Chris Styles here - it was hard to imagine how big the ecosystem would grow. Today we have over 70 partners, 136 supported development boards and over 15,000 commits from 405 different contributors to Mbed OS 5. But none of this was possible without you, as part of our community. Now over 325,000 developers strong, the community has published tens of thousands of libraries and examples, and answered thousands of questions about Mbed. You also compiled 13,000,000 applications in the Online Compiler last year alone.

Mbed OS 5.8 release: Focus on production, robustness and connectivity


About this release

Mbed OS 5.8 focuses on Mbed Enabled modules to reduce development cost, time and risk and provide go-to market value compared to traditional chip down designs. We are continuing our focus on low power with our sleep/deep sleep profiling tool, with which you can identify objects that are stopping entry into low power modes. The 5.8 release continues to strengthen Arm's connectivity portfolio with an updated LPWAN stack and updated Cellular stack with support for IoT-ready NB-IoT and CAT-M1 technologies. We have also launched the closed alpha developer trial of Mbed Studio, a free desktop IDE designed specifically for Mbed OS.

In addition, this release contains many minor fixes and enhancements and brings support for 121 target development boards. In the release note below, we summarize some of the key updates to Mbed OS that are part of the Mbed OS 5.8.0 release.
