mbed OS 5.7 brings robust embedded file management and mesh networking stack

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

Mbed has released version 5.7.0 of its operating system for ARM microcontrollers to further simplify the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded product development with the addition of several new features.

This includes a high-integrity embedded file system, which provides power loss resilient operation and maximises the life of the external memory block device by implementing wear levelling techniques that stop blocks of memory being over-used. 

The release also includes an open-source mesh networking stack, which is IPv6, 6LoWPAN and one of the only two open-source certified Thread networking stacks. 

mbed has also added documentation about contributing and using the platform, drivers, RTOS, connectivity and storage APIs, as well as information on the web-based tools.

The release also contains many minor fixes and enhancements and brings support for 103 target development boards.
