Huawei LiteOS is a lightweight operating system based on real-time kernel developed by Huawei for the IoT. The existing basic kernel includes an untailorable ultra-small kernel and some tailorable modules. The ultra-small kernel covers task management, memory management, interrupt management, error handling, and system clock. Tailorable modules include semaphore, mutex lock, queue management, event management, and software timer. In addition to the basic kernel functions, Huawei LiteOS also provides the enhanced kernel functions, including the C++ support, low power consumption, and maintenance and test module. The low power mechanisms such as tickless and run-stop hibernation and wakeup can be used to greatly reduce the system power consumption. The maintenance and test module can be used to obtain CPU usage, trace events, and run shell commands.
Huawei LiteOS provides device-cloud synergy capabilities and integrates the full set of IoT interconnection protocol stacks including LwM2M, CoAP, Mbed TLS, and LwIP. In addition, Huawei LiteOS provides the AgentTiny module based on LwM2M. You only need to focus on your own applications instead of LwM2M implementation details. You can directly use the AgentTiny-encapsulated APIs to implement secure and reliable connections with the cloud platforms.
Since the release of open-source community, Huawei LiteOS has enabled partners in terms of technologies, ecosystems, solutions, and commercial support in the NB-IoT market to build an open-source IoT ecosystem. Currently, Huawei has aggregated more than 50 MCUs and solution partners to jointly launch a series of open-source development kits and industry solutions, helping industry customers quickly launch IoT terminals and services. Such customers are involved in various industries, such as meter reading, parking, street lamp, environmental protection, bicycle sharing, and logistics. Moreover, Huawei LiteOS provides developers with a one-stop software platform, lowering development requirements and improving development efficiency.
