FreeRTOS+TCP license

Posted by sgjesse on June 2, 2016

On the FreeRTOS+TCP license page it says:

FreeRTOS+TCP can be used under the terms of the FreeRTOS Open Source License when it is used on the following microcontroller or processor families.

Atmel SAM family Xilinx Zynq ST STM32 family More soon!

What is the reason for limiting the microcontroller families for which FreeRTOS+TCP can be used under the FreeRTOS Open Source License, and not GPL? What is the process for getting more microcontroller families on the list (the More soon! part)?

Regards, Søren

It's a matter of time - things are very busy at the moment.

Just for my understanding, Intel Galileo Gen2 cannot be connected to the network with FreeRTOS+TCP? Or it is just a Licensing and support matter?

FreeRTOS+TCP can be used on any hardware - if you write a driver for the Galileo then you can use FreeRTOS+TCP under its default GPL license rather than the FreeRTOS open source license.
