Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform® Brings Industrial-Grade IoT Support to RISC-V Architecture

Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announced today that its industrial-grade X-Ware IoT Platform®—powered by the industry-leading ThreadX® RTOS—provides turnkey support for Microsemi’s Mi-V RISC-V instruction set architectures (ISAs). RISC-V, a standard, open ISA under the governance of the RISC-V Foundation, offers the open source community portability as well as the ability to test and improve cores more rapidly than they could using closed ISAs. This is because the RISC-V intellectual property (IP) core is not encrypted and therefore can be used to ensure trust and certifications not possible with closed architectures. Microsemi’s new Mi-V ecosystem brings together a number of industry leaders involved in the development of RISC-V to leverage their capabilities and streamline RISC-V designs for customers.

Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform, the industry’s most comprehensive deeply embedded run-time offering, includes the ThreadX RTOS, the FileX® embedded FAT file system, the embedded GUIX™ UI framework, the NetX™/NetX Duo™ embedded TCP/IP protocol stack, and the USBX™ embedded USB support.

Safe, Secure, Seamless IoT Connectivity

The X-Ware IoT Platform contains no open-source code, provides high performance, and boasts an extremely small footprint. The X-Ware IoT Platform automatically scales to use only what is needed by the application, making it perfectly suited for the smallest low-power IoT devices.

In addition to the performance and size advantages of the X-Ware IoT Platform, Express Logic’s ThreadX, FileX, and NetX Duo have attained the highest level of safety certifications. They include IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.

X-Ware IoT Platform also offers advanced security protocols, including NetX Secure IPsec, TLS, and DTLS.

“With over 6.2 billion ThreadX deployments, we are pleased that Express Logic has expanded its X-Ware IoT Platform support to the Microsemi Mi-V RISC-V ISA for our award-winning PolarFire FPGAs,” said Tim Morin, Director of Strategic Marketing, Microsemi. “This development effort not only supports our needs but also contributes to the entire RISC-V development community. Customers can now select RISC-V for their new designs and have industrial-grade IoT connectivity and security without compromise.”

Mi-V RISC-V support also enables developers to confidently leverage the entire X-Ware IoT Platform solution, including the GUIX embedded GUI and USBX embedded USB solutions and technologies.

“Express Logic is pleased to be a foundational part of Microsemi’s Mi-V RISC-V ecosystem,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic. “Our X-Ware IoT Platform, powered by the industry-leading ThreadX RTOS with over 6.2 billion deployments, is the preferred embedded software platform for all designs requiring industrial-grade run-time solutions, making it an ideal fit for serious products based on the RISC-V architecture.”

Demonstration at Embedded World, Hall 4-122

Express Logic will be demonstrating ThreadX for the RISC-V architecture using the Microsemi RISC-V PolarFire evaluation board at the Embedded World Conference February 27 through March 1 in Nuremberg, Germany, stand 4-122.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
