Express Logic Inc.’s ThreadX RTOS now supports Critical Link’s MityDSP-L138 board. The MityDSP-L138F system-on-module (SoM) combines a TI C674x floating point DSP, an ARM9 processor, and an optional FPGA. According to Express Logic, ThreadX is the first and only RTOS that runs on both the MityDSP's ARM9 and the TI C674x. This enables developers to migrate applications from one processor to the other as needed without changing application code. Such flexibility complements Critical Link’s SoMs, which are easily customized to support a wide range of applications in medical, scientific, and industrial instrumentation.
ThreadX is available in full source code distributions, configured for use with a variety of development tools including TI’s Code Composer Studio, which supports both the ARM9 and C674x DSP on the MityDSP-L138F.
In addition to the MityDSP-L138F, the MityDSP SoM family includes modules built around TI’s C6748, C6711 and C645x DSPs with an optional Xilinx FPGA. Critical Link also offers the MityARM family with SoMs supporting TI ARM (AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 and AM1808 ARM9) processors.
