Express Logic Achieves Record Revenue, Deployments, Network Throughput, and Time-to-Market

Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free, real-time operating systems (RTOS), celebrates a second consecutive year of record revenue, record ThreadX® RTOS deployments, breakthrough NetX™ networking speed, and sixth consecutive year of dominance in time-to-market results.

ThreadX® RTOS Deployments Led By SoCs for Wireless Communications

Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS has been deployed in more than 1.25 billion units, led by its widespread use in Bluetooth, Baseband, and WiFi radio SoCs used in smartphones and tablets, including Apple’s market-leading iPhone® and iPad®. ThreadX also is used in HP’s market-leading inkjet printers and All-in-One devices. Thanks to these and thousands of other products that rely on it, ThreadX is one of the most widely used RTOSes in the world for commercial products that have to work all day, every day.

Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS is a small, fast, royalty-free RTOS that provides priority-based premptive scheduling, optimized context switching, and an intuitive, easy-to-use API. ThreadX has been deployed in products in areas such as consumer electronics, medical devices and industrial-control systems where low overhead, high-performance, and rock-solid reliability are essential. These widespread deployments in market-leading products demonstrate the outstanding reliability and exceptional quality of ThreadX.

Record Networking Performance

Like ThreadX, Express Logic’s NetX™ and NetX Duo TCP/IP Stacks are geared for high-performance and ease of use. NetX supports IPv4 networking, while NetX Duo supports both IPv4 and IPv6 in the same stack. Designed for high-speed and low overhead, both stacks optimize performance by taking advantage of special-purpose network hardware available in a number of processor architectures. As a result, NetX has achieved near-wire speed on many processors, including Sony’s Cell BE, Freescale’s Kinetis K40, STMicroelectronics’ STM32F407, Atmel’s SAMA5D3, and Xilinx’s Zynq-7000.

NetX avoids significant processing overhead through its tight integration with the fast, efficient ThreadX RTOS, rather than using an RTOS-agnostic interface layer like many TCP/IP stacks on the market today. As a result, NetX typically achieves this high-performance while consuming less than 50% CPU utilization, leaving more than half of the CPU’s processing cycles available for use by other application code.

Record Time-To-Market Success

Embedded Market Forecasters (EMF) annually surveys embedded system developers worldwide. In that survey, EMF asks, “Which RTOS did you use in your last project?” and “Was that project completed on-time, ahead-of-schedule, or late?” For the sixth consecutive year, projects that used Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS had a higher percentage of on-time completions than any of its competitors. For a free copy of a recent EMF survey analysis, see: http://rtos.com/PDFs/ShootoutRTOSCorral-03-2009.pdf.

“With over 1.25 billion deployments in such market-leading products, it is clear that our ThreadX RTOS and related middleware are fundamental to the commercial viability of these devices,” noted William E. Lamie, President of Express Logic. “Express Logic’s products consistently exceed the norm, whether in time-to-market, network throughput, or innovative design. That’s why they’re in so many market-leading electronic products today!”

A demonstration of Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS can be viewed at the Embedded Theater in Hall 5, on Tuesday, February 26th, at 10:30 A.M.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.
