Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS supports Luminary Micro's Stellaris microcontrollers

-July 28, 2006

San Diego, CA — Express Logic, Inc.'s ThreadX real-time operating systems (RTOS) now supports Luminary Micro's Stellaris microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller core.

An evaluation version of ThreadX and a demonstration application are now included in Luminary Micro's Stellaris Development Kits. The demonstration consists of a simple six thread application that uses many advanced, yet easy-to-use features of ThreadX. The entire application with ThreadX requires less than 7KB of flash and less than 4KB of SRAM. Users can modify the demonstration or write a completely new ThreadX application up to the evaluation limits, which consist of ten threads, one instantiation of each type of memory pool, and a maximum of two instantiations for each of the other ThreadX objects.

"ThreadX presents a small memory footprint with an easy to use, rich set of system services such as threads, message queues, counting semaphores, and mutexes. We are pleased to include ThreadX in our development kit, providing developers with a convenient introduction to the capabilities of ThreadX in their applications," said Jean Anne Booth, Chief Marketing Officer of Luminary Micro.

ThreadX is Express Logic's small, fast, royalty-free RTOS for demanding real-time applications. Its royalty-free business model makes ThreadX extremely attractive for high-volume devices. ThreadX's ease-of-use enables ThreadX-powered devices to get to market on time and within budget, which accounts for ThreadX's success in the marketplace and its high-volume implementations. ThreadX has been widely embraced and is currently deployed in excess of 300 million electronic products.

ThreadX is available in full source code form, royalty free, at license prices starting at $12,500.
