Azure RTOS pricing

Making embedded IoT development and connectivity easy

Azure RTOS is an easy-to-use, market-proven, comprehensive suite of multithreading facilities, middleware and Windows tools for developing embedded IoT applications including: ThreadX, NetX, NetX Duo, FileX, GUIX, GUIX Studio, USBX and TraceX.

No cost to test and explore the source code. The full source code for all Azure RTOS components is available on GitHub, allowing you to explore, develop, test and adapt Azure RTOS to suit your needs.

Two ways to get an Azure RTOS licence:

  1. The production licence is automatically included if you deploy to any of the supported microcontroller (MCU) or microprocessor (MPU) devices. A list of pre-licensed devices is available on GitHub.
  2. If you prefer to use a device in production that is not listed on GitHub, licensing options are available. Please contact sales.
