Express Logic to Present Paper on Source Code Quality at ARM TechCon 2013
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time
operating systems (RTOSes), will present a technical paper on the value
of RTOS source code at the 2013 ARM (News - Alert) TechCon in Santa Clara, CA, on
Tuesday, October 29, 2013. ARM TechCon is an annual event aimed at
embedded systems developers designing products based on ARM-licensed
architectures. Thanks to the high quality of source code in Express
RTOS, ThreadX has been successfully
deployed in over 1.5 billion electronic products worldwide. The
presentation will share the benefits gained through this experience.
to be presented:
Title: "Consider The Source (News - Alert)," a
discussion on the value of source code for developers, and the
qualitative elements of source code that differentiate "good" code
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 29th,
at 10:30 A.M.
Place: Grand Ballroom D, Santa Clara
Most embedded system developers recognize the value of having source
code for the RTOS they use, and that this access to source code makes
the RTOS easier to use. In fact, this is the number one priority
developers consider in selecting an RTOS, according to UBM's latest
embedded developer survey. But exactly why is source code of value? And,
is simply having the source code sufficient? Are there qualitative
degrees of desirable attributes of source code beyond its simple
To answer these questions, the paper examines the RTOS both externally
and internally. The external examination will focus on the RTOS's
Application Programming Interface, commonly referred to as the API.
The API provides the interface layer through which application programs
access and control the RTOS's functions. Depending on the API's design,
the developer's job is easy or difficult. Beyond the API, the paper
examines the internal implementation code for the RTOS's functions and
identifies what makes "good code," what makes "bad code," why good code
is good, and why bad code is bad.
In addition to presenting this paper, Express Logic will launch a new
product. The new product and the ThreadX RTOS will be exhibited in the Express
Logic Booth, #412.
"ARM is an extremely important partner for us with the majority of our
customers using a combination
of ARM processor architectures and ThreadX for their device
development," noted William E. Lamie, president of Express Logic. "From
our largest customers, like HP, to our many other smaller customers,
ThreadX is used in over 1.5 billion deployed units. We invite all those
considering ARM for their next device development project to come visit
us at our booth and learn how ThreadX can help them bring their product
