    Open source, collaboration

    Based on existing open source software, multiple organizations and open source communities are working together to develop HybridOS.


HybridOS not only runs on smart IoT devices to support application development on devices, but also provides programming interfaces for the cloud and the clients. It gives the developers a new complete software stack and protocol stack from devices to the cloud and the clients.


The developers can always write device app and client apps for any operating system, such as Linux, Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, or RTOS like ThreadX, by using a set of extended HTML5 tags and JavaScript/CSS.


HybridOS integrates some cloud computing services which are dedicated to IoT, such as distributed MQTT servers, identity authentication mechanism, and some basic services, such as firmware upgrade.

Open source, collaboration, business friendly...

Although the HybridOS project was initiated by FMSoft, this huge plan could not be achieved with FMSoft alone. As a company engaged in the development and promotion of open source system software for nearly 20 years, FMSoft decided to unite other vendors to jointly develop HybridOS in an open source collaboration.

The members make up the Administrative Leadership structure for the HybridOS Project. They contribute time, money, and effort in order to consistently make the HybridOS technically progressive and financially stable.
