Express Logic Eases IoT Development

Express Logic has integrated all of its middleware to work together offering peak performance and minimal footprint

Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOSes), introduces X-Ware™, an integrated, optimized, comprehensive middleware solution that provides a solid foundation for Internet of Things (IoT) development. X-Ware consists of Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS and its extensive middleware offerings of FileX, NetX, NetX Duo, USBX, GUIX, GUIX Studio, and TraceX. Together, they deliver all that’s needed for embedded systems to meet the functional and usability requirements of IoT devices.

Although Express Logic’s X-Ware components can operate individually, they have been tightly integrated with the ThreadX RTOS to achieve optimum performance. Express Logic has integrated all of its middleware to work together offering peak performance and minimal footprint. All of the X-Ware components can be used in IoT devices that require a graphical user interface, high-speed networking, USB capability, a file system, and an RTOS.

The Internet-of-Things has evolved over the past 10 years to incorporate billions of intelligent, connected devices that are expected to continue to grow substantially into the next decade. IoT devices today typically offer attractive Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and high-speed IPv6 networking. This shift has created a demand for high-performance software building blocks that can facilitate the rapid development of new devices with varied functionality. From handheld entertainment systems and wearable devices to implanted medical technology, IoT facilitates the flow of communications and information to deliver previously unachievable automation and remote control of computerized devices.

Such benefits require significant software development activity, and device manufacturers need a way to develop that software economically while bringing the resulting products to market quickly. The “Build vs. Buy” paradigm has shifted strongly towards “buy”, in the interest of meeting time-to-market objectives—a critical objective for companies meeting the tight ROI demands of verticals such as automotive, industrial control, medical, and smart energy where IoT is dominant.

Over the 20 years since their introduction, Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS and middleware have consistently provided developers with measurably faster time to market and more successful design results according to findings from Embedded Market Forecasters. Given the many IoT development challenges to deliver high performance with small-footprint devices, Express Logic’s unparalleled ease-of-use can significantly cut development time and cost. X-Ware delivers small footprint, high-performance, and unparalleled ease-of-use solutions for the IoT.

“Our X-Ware today powers many smartphones, medical devices, and industrial control equipment that have been integrated into the fundamental infrastructure of the IoT network,” commented William E. Lamie, CEO of Express Logic. “We’ve developed all of our X-Ware products in-house. Not only does this ensure that they are fully integrated, but we have been able to fine-tune performance to ensure that these tools can faciliate the responsive exchange of data needed for dynamic remote control. With an X-Ware foundation, IoT development is faster, more cost-effective, and free of the debug challenges that stop other hybrid solutions from being successful.”

Price And Availability

X-Ware products are individually licensed at prices starting at $12,500, with no per-unit royalties. Please consult Express Logic for further information.

IceWarp, the leader of cloud and on-premise messaging, delivers secured email, chat, documents, conferencing and collaboration to today's mobile workforce, all in one unified interface
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
