Micrium launched the µC/OS-MPU (Memory Protection Unit), which is an enhancement of uC/OS-II. The add-on is designed to protect the uC/OS-II internal memory from task memory areas. µC/OS-MPU introduces processes with a dedicated memory context. Each process, which can have one or more tasks assigned, is protected against memory corruption by other components. Shared memory regions can be created and assigned to different processes.
