Mbed OS 6.3 released today

The Mbed team are pleased to announce the release of Mbed OS 6.3 today. This release includes features and examples covering;

  • Cloud connectivity
  • WiSUN
  • BLE

Over the past few months, we have begun to release our work to extend cloud service support in Mbed OS, initially by adding an integration with the Amazon Web Services SDK, which we released as part of Mbed 6.0 back in June. We firmly believe that providing examples of how to use Mbed OS with different cloud service providers gives developers using Mbed more choices when it comes to developing their IoT products and so today we’re pleased to release two further cloud service integrations;

  • Microsoft Azure IoT
  • Google Cloud IoT

You can find out more about these integrations, and see an example of how to use them here

Wi-SUN is a meshing network technology being adopted in smart city and smart metering use cases. Mbed OS first introduced Wi-SUN support in our 5.12 release and we’ve subsequently been adding new features as the technology is becoming more widely adopted. In Mbed OS 6.3 we’ve added new functionality to support setting up and securing a Wi-SUN Border Router.

As we’ve mentioned before, we are also in the process of tidying up the Mbed directory structure as part of the development of the new build tools we’re working on, so further changes to that structure are included in this release.

This release also includes the BLE Integration Test Suite that my colleague Vincent blogged about yesterday.

Mbed OS 6.3 is available now using Mbed Studio and the Mbed Online Compiler, or directly on the Mbed GitHub repository.
