Amazon FreeRTOS helps developers simplify the process of connecting an Internet of Things (IoT) device to the cloud. However, even with a simpler cloud connection, a major hurdle that many developers will be facing is how to update their devices’ firmware in the field.
Firmware updates are often done using a bootloader which can come in many different forms based on the device architecture and the communication peripherals available. Since bootloaders are commonplace and included in nearly every embedded system, developers need to leverage existing solutions instead of developing one from scratch. This allows them to spend more time focused on their own product’s differentiators and features. http://bit.ly/2wAFeRg
