The Sedona Framework is designed to make it easy to build smart, networked embedded devices. Some of the Sedona Framework highlights:

Sedona Language
A general-purpose component oriented programming language very similar to Java or C#. The Sedona language is used to write your own custom functionality.
Sedona Virtual Machine
The SVM is a small interpreter written in ANSI C designed for portability. It allows code written in the Sedona programming language to be written once, but run on any Sedona Framework-enabled device. The SVM itself is designed to be highly portable to new microprocessors and operating systems.
Small Devices
The Sedona Framework is targeted to be run in very small embedded devices - Sedona Framework applications can be run in under 100KB of memory!
Component Oriented Programming
The Sedona Framework enables a style of programming where prebuilt components are assembled into applications. Components can act as services or be explicitly linked together to create data and control flow. This model is especially suited to graphical programming tools.
Several protocols are bundled with the Sedona Framework to provision, program, and communicate with Sedona Framework-enabled devices over various network topologies. You can remotely add, remove, and modify the components in your application in real-time. You can even upgrade the firmware itself over the network. All networking is designed to work over any IP network including 6LoWPAN.
Open Source Ecosystem
The core Sedona Framework technology is licensed under a flexible academic styled license. This makes it easy for manufacturers to Sedona Framework-enable their devices. Tools and applications written in Sedona are portable to any certified Sedona Framework device.
