ThreadX-Lite RTOS is a new, single-user license that targets the ARM Cortex-M series microcontrollers. The ThreadX-Lite real-time operating system is a subset of ThreadX RTOS and contains many ThreadX features and capabilities. ThreadX-Lite is packaged in a compact object library designed with IAR Systems for use with the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE. The Express Logic ThreadX-Lite is available exclusively through IAR Systems for $4,500 per seat, with no run-time royalties.
VDC Research is offering a webinar titled, A Market Update on Embedded / Real-Time Operating Systems. The webcast will take place at 1pm (EST) on June 16, 2010. The online seminar will present data from VDC Research’s 2010 study on embedded real-time operating systems. the speaker of the webinar is Steve Balacco, VDC Research Director of Embedded Software and Tools.
The CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ RTOSes now support Energy Micro’s ultra low energy 32-bit EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family. CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ provide a truly preemptive, multi-tasking operating system for accelerating the development capabilities of designers who use the EFM32 Gecko microcontrollers. CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ enable faster application development and efficient hardware utilization for Energy Micro based designs. The EFM32 is based on the ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller core.
TenAsys introduced INtime 4.0 real-time operating systems (RTOS) for Windows. INtime 4.0 enables embedded system developers to run multiple instances of the TenAsys INtime real-time operating systems alongside Windows on the same multi-core processor platform. Previously, embedded systems requiring multiple real-time OSes and Windows needed to employ multiple independent processor platforms. By consolidating operating environments into a single platform, embedded system developers can obtain significant cost savings and improved scalability of processing power.
