Renesas Electronics America and Express Logic Announce RZ Express Program to Drive Development of HMI Applications

Renesas Electronics America, a leading supplier of advanced
semiconductor solutions, and Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader
in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOSs), announce the new RZ
Express program—an optimized package of high-performance
microprocessors (MPUs), easy-to-use RTOS, and comprehensive middleware
solutions ideal for high-resolution displays used in the design of
human-machine interface (HMI) applications.
The RZ Express program offers embedded designers developing a
commercial application with any Renesas RZ/A1 high-performance MPU the
chance to obtain a valuable single-product license for Express Logic’s
ThreadX® RTOS. This includes any Express Logic middleware
components required to complete the application—NetX™, USBX™, FileX®,
and GUIX™. Additionally, free software support and maintenance is
provided for 90 days.* The RZ Express program brings together a
powerful hardware platform and a leading commercial RTOS to help reduce
design and execution risk by providing a proven path to high-performance
“Using the Express Logic RTOS and middleware, including GUIX, helps
designers quickly and effectively build differentiated HMI solutions on
top of the Renesas RZ/A1 hardware platform,” said Ritesh Tyagi, vice
president of marketing for Renesas Electronics America. “The RZ/A1 MPUs
have been optimized for HMI applications and, when used with GUIX and
the Express Logic middleware, provide an optimal solution for
Renesas RZ/A series of MPUs combine a high-performance ARM®
Cortex-A9 processor with up to an industry-leading 10MB of on-chip RAM
to support faster device control, digital audio and video-signal
processing, and much more. The large on-chip RAM removes the need for
external SDRAM, enabling low-power, cost-effective embedded display
applications at up to WXGA resolution. The RZ/A MPUs can also drive two
displays and execute code in place from cost-effective QSPI flash memory.
“Today’s end user expects to manage an embedded device through an
intuitive human-machine interface,” noted William E. Lamie, president of
Express Logic. “RZ Express provides engineers with the fully
integrated tools they need to design a system that is responsive,
powerful, and graphically pleasing all within a minimal footprint.
What’s more, RZ Express provides this robust software support
free, saving development teams thousands of dollars otherwise needed for
such high-quality software.”
Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS is deployed in over two billion electronic
products, most of which are powered by ARM-based processors. ThreadX and
Express Logic’s related middleware provide priority-based, preemptive,
real-time scheduling, messaging, IPv4/IPv6 networking, USB Host/Device,
and GUI software support for these systems. The Express Logic products
strongly complement the Renesas RZ/A MPU.
The RZ Express promotion is valid only in the Americas (North
America, South America and Central America). Qualified customers*
can request a single-product license by registering their project with
Renesas. For more information, or to apply for the program, visit http://am.renesas.com/RZExpress.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
