The Sedona Framework is a software framework designed to make it easy to build smart, networked embedded devices. Some of the Sedona Framework highlights:
- Sedona Language: This is 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 virtual machine is a small interpreter written in ANSI C and 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 VM itself is designed to be highly portable to new microprocessors and operating systems.
- Small Devices: The Sedona Framework is ideal for very small embedded devices. It can run on platforms with less than 100KB of memory!
- Component Oriented Programming: The Sedona Framework enables a style of programming where pre-built 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.
- Networking: 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. Sedona Framework networking is designed to work over any IP network, including 6LoWPAN.
- Open Source Ecosystem: The core Sedona Framework technology uses a flexible academic styled license. This makes it easy for manufacturers to Sedona Framework-enable their devices. Tools and applications written in Sedona are guaranteed portable to any Sedona Framework device.
