The Zephyr Project is small, scalable microcontroller RTOS focused on security and connectivity. Unlike other RTOSes, the Zephyr Project is a collaborative, open-source project hosted by the Linux Foundation and benefits from a permissive Apache 2.0 license. NXP is a founding Platinum member of the project.

This demo showcases Zephyr running on a FRDM-K64F board in a small footprint nanokernel-only configuration. The application uses a nanokernel timer to sample the FXOS8700CQ accelerometer at a periodic interval and print the result to the UART console. The memory footprint of the application and the kernel combined is just over 10 KB flash and 4 KB RAM.
