Express Logic, Inc., has launched X-Ware Platform, target-specific, integrated development software that delivers all X-Ware components (ThreadX, NetX, USBX, FileX, GUIX, and TraceX ) pre-ported and fully integrated for use on specific development boards. Express Logic has tailored its initial X-Ware Platform offerings to the ARM developer community. By integrating its ThreadX RTOS and middleware components for use on specific targets, Express Logic’s X-Ware Platform simplifies and accelerates IoT development for products aimed at markets such as home automation, smart metering, industrial control, medical devices, and more.
X-Ware Platform also features IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP, USB host/device, GUI , and file system software libraries, including device drivers, readily accessible from applications via a simple, intuitive API. Customers simply choose the X-Ware Platform combination of RTOS and middleware most suited for their particular application.
X-Ware Platform is designed to work with IAR’s Embedded Workbench IDE on ARM-based MPU/MCU development boards such as the Renesas Cortex-A9, RZ/A1-based RSK . X-Ware Platform delivers all of the software technologies required to create real-time, networked, connected, HMI-driven products—all integrated and optimized for high performance—so that developers can focus on their domain expertise. By custom-constructing each X-Ware Platform for specific development boards, Express Logic saves OEMs the engineering development time needed to produce fully supportable, fully integrated, easy-to-use IoT systems. Express Logic’s board-specific X-Ware Platform includes support for peripherals such as LCD touchscreens, Ethernet MAC, USB host or device controllers, and SD card media. All are supported with integrated stacks and drivers, ready to use out of the box.
X-Ware Platform is licensed at prices starting at $12,500 with no per-unit royalties. Pre-license evaluation is easy and free. Reference projects can be downloaded and run on a developer’s hardware of choice, free of charge. Full source evaluation licenses are available free of charge from Express Logic.
