Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform™ to Bring Industrial Grade Connectivity to Thread® Networked Devices

X-Ware IoT Platform Will Enhance Device Connectivity in Smart Home Automation

SAN DIEGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 24, 2017Express Logic, the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announces that its Industrial Grade X-Ware IoT Platform™ will soon include support for the Thread networking protocol. Created by the Thread Group, Thread is a reliable, low-power, secure, and scalable mesh networking solution that provides a foundation on which any application layer can run. Designed for devices and things that reside in the places where people live and work, Thread is an IPv6 networking protocol built on open standards for low-power 802.15.4 mesh networks, which easily and securely connect hundreds of devices to one another and directly to the cloud without draining battery life or one single point of failure.

The X-Ware IoT Platform is powered by Express Logic’s high-performance ThreadX® RTOS and NetX Duo™ dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack. The X-Ware IoT Platform leverages all the benefits of NetX Duo as well as Express Logic’s industrial-grade implementations of IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN), Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), and Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS).

Fast, Secure, Reliable Connectivity

The X-Ware IoT Platform contains no open source, is 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, ThreadX 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, 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.

“Express Logic is an active participant in the Thread Group, and is making meaningful contributions towards helping Thread deliver on its promise,” said Grant Erickson, president of the Thread Group. “We're very pleased to see Express Logic pursue certification for the X-Ware IoT Platform’s use of Thread’s low-power, IP-based mesh network protocol. With that, they’ll be able to address the growing demand to seamlessly connect hundreds of devices to each other, to mobile devices, and directly to the cloud, without compromising battery life.”

Once certified, other developers will be able to confidently leverage the entire X-Ware IoT Platform solution, including the safety-certified FileX, GUIX, and USBX solutions and technologies, knowing it will seamlessly connect to other Thread-certified devices.

“By their very nature home automation IoT devices have demanding safety, security, and networking needs,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic. “Extending our X-Ware IoT Platform to support Thread will provide a scalable and comprehensive Industrial Grade solution to device makers that use Thread for connectivity and networking across a variety of semiconductor solutions.”
