Express Logic's X-Ware™ Eases IoT Development
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time
operating systems (RTOSes), introduces X-Ware™, an integrated,
optimized, comprehensive middleware solution that provides a solid
foundation for Internet of Things (IoT) development. X-Ware consists of
Express Logic's ThreadX
RTOS and its extensive middleware offerings of FileX, NetX, NetX
Duo, USBX, GUIX, GUIX Studio, and TraceX. Together, they deliver all
that's needed for embedded systems to meet the functional and usability
requirements of IoT devices.
Although Express Logic's X-Ware components can operate individually,
they have been tightly integrated with the ThreadX
RTOS to achieve optimum performance. Express Logic has integrated
all of its middleware to work together offering peak performance and
minimal footprint. All of the X-Ware components can be used in IoT
devices that require a graphical user interface, high-speed networking,
USB capability, a file system, and an RTOS.
The Internet-of-Things has evolved over the past 10 years to incorporate
billions of intelligent, connected devices that are expected to continue
to grow substantially into the next decade. IoT devices today typically
offer attractive Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and high-speed IPv6
networking. This shift has created a demand for high-performance
software building blocks that can facilitate th rapid development of
new devices with varied functionality. From handheld entertainment
systems and wearable devices to implanted medical technology, IoT
facilitates the flow of communications and information to deliver
previously unachievable automation and remote control of computerized
Such benefits require significant software development activity, and
device manufacturers need a way to develop that software economically
while bringing the resulting products to market quickly. The "Build vs.
Buy" paradigm has shifted strongly towards "buy", in the interest of
meeting time-to-market objectives-a critical objective for companies
meeting the tight ROI demands of verticals such as automotive,
industrial control, medical, and smart energy where IoT is dominant.
Over the 20 years since their introduction, Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS
and middleware have consistently provided developers with measurably
faster time to market and more successful design results according
to findings from Embedded Market Forecasters (News - Alert). Given the many IoT
development challenges to deliver high performance with small-footprint
devices, Express Logic's unparalleled ease-of-use can significantly cut
development time and cost. X-Ware delivers small footprint,
high-performance, and unparalleled ease-of-use solutions for the IoT.
"Our X-Ware today powers many smartphones, medical devices, and
industrial control equipment that have been integrated into the
fundamental infrastructure of the IoT network," commented William E.
Lamie, CEO of Express Logic. "We've developed all of our X-Ware products
in-house. Not only does this ensure that they are fully integrated, but
we have been able to fine-tune performance to ensure that these tools
can faciliate the responsive exchange of data needed for dynamic remote
control. With an X-Ware foundation, IoT development is faster, more
cost-effective, and free of the debug challenges that stop other hybrid
solutions from being successful."
