ThreadX® RTOS deployment count soars to over 500 million mobile devices
Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced that it has been inducted into VisionMobile’s “100 Million Club,” in recognition of the deployment of its ThreadX RTOS in over 500 million mobile handsets—more than five times the minimum entry level—as of the first half of 2010.
VisionMobile, a market analysis and strategy firm delivering market know-how to the mobile industry, offers research reports, industry maps, training courses and advisory services on under-the-radar market sectors and emerging technologies. The 100 Million Club gathers a watchlist of software companies whose products have been embedded on more than 100 million mobile handsets. The current edition, released today, features cumulative shipments up to the middle of 2010.
Despite the apparent opportunity in the one-billion-a-year handset market, very few software companies have managed to overcome the commercial and technical challenges inherent in the mobile industry. According to VisionMobile, as of the end of June 2010, only 34 products from 29 companies have shipped on more that 100 million handsets (including feature phones). The list of products can be found at www.100millionclub.com . Updated semiannually, the 100 million club celebrates software businesses that have succeeded in establishing a significant share in the mobile handset market.

“We welcome Express Logic into the 100 Million Club based on the widespread use of their ThreadX RTOS product in mobile devices,” commented Andreas Constantinou, Research Director of VisionMobile. “ThreadX already has amassed over 500 million mobile deployments and represents one of a small number of software products that can claim such success.”
“We appreciate the recognition that VisionMobile has given our ThreadX RTOS in their latest 100 Million Club report,” commented William Lamie, President and CEO of Express Logic. “Our 500 million ThreadX deployments in mobile devices indicates the popularity and rock-solid performance of our software.”
