AsymtekAsymtek® is using Express Logic’s ThreadX® Real-Time Operating System to develop operation and function control software for its Axiom X-1020 automated fluid dispensing system. Using Freescale's MPC555 processor, the X-1020 was designed to meet high-volume requirements for inline semiconductor package and printed circuit board assembly. It supports a full range of applications, including flip chip and CSP underfill, dam and fill, die attach, thermal compounds and more.
Control Technology CorpControl Technology Corporation utilizes NetX and ThreadX in its leading Factory Automation controle
"We selected ThreadX because we wanted to get a flexible OS with a small footprint. It made the development of our new Blue Fusion product much simpler and allowed us to merge the Ethernet communications that was running on a separate CPU into the main product using NetX without having to rewrite the code to handle the different processes. The application speed was comparable to our previous, internally developed OS, with a significant increase in functionality and reduced development time integrating new features. The support was excellent and porting to our hardware and compiler took less than 1 week."
"ThreadX and NetX helped us to quickly enter the marketplace with a high performance display controller. The customer support that we received from Express Logic has been exceptional."
DriveCamDriveCam utilizes ThreadX in its video recording systems.
"Our experiences with ThreadX have been excellent. The operating system is very well featured, and it performed efficiently and trouble-free right out of the box. The FileX disk operating system is an excellent complement. Implementation was straightforward. Most importantly, the customer support has been very quick to respond to our needs, and rapidly implemented suggestions we made. Express Logic is a winning team member we would choose again & again."
Francotyp-Postalia AG & Co
"The use of ThreadX has sped up our time to market and has improved the quality of our products. The product has offered us a good tradeoff between resource management in our platforms and the overhead in code-size and performance."
Green Hills Software
"In developing the Green Hills Probe, we needed an RTOS that was fast, small and of course, royalty-free. We also needed good web communications support, and didn't want to develop this ourselves. ThreadX gave us the fastest development times, the fastest time to develop a working device and the fastest time-to-market. We didn't need to spend time working on getting the RTOS running, we could concentrate on developing our application. It was our best choice (by far) in selecting an RTOS for the ARM CPU."
Horner APG, LLC
"Having been an embedded control hardware / firmware designer for over 30 years, I've been exposed to a great deal of 3rd party software. The Express Logic packages rank at the top of my list from their excellent documentation, to their well-structured, well commented, efficient and consistent source code. Also, when I have run into difficulty, support from Express Logic has been second to none. Working with Express Logic has simply been a pleasure." http://www.heapg.com
Jetter AG"Jetter AG has used Express Logic’s ThreadX® RTOS in our JC340 programmable logic controller. We selected ThreadX for its small memory footprint, full source code, royalty-free licensing, and its support of various microcontrollers with outstanding real-time performance."
MicronetMicronet's newly designed M-Series is an advanced, yet most economical line of products, supporting a vast range of mobile applications, from in-cab messaging and status reporting to fully portable data collection and Signature capture. Built upon two decades of mobile technology experience and proven success in the form of over 190,000 MDT units sold globally, the new M-Series offers more value, functionality and reliability than any other product in its category.
Tandberg DataTandberg Data is using Express Logic’s ThreadX® real-time operating system to develop control software for its SLR160 tape streamer device. Using an IBM Power Architecture 405 processor, the SLR160 is a high performance device capable of backing-up 160GB of data at a sustained transfer rate of 24MB/s compressed.
TEAC"ThreadX is used in our Portable Digital Recorder to capture audio data onto a compact flash card. We used ThreadX for our RTOS because it is fast and provides the best real-time performance for our system."
The Acculeon Telemetry Information System
"With ThreadX and NetX we started focusing on our product TIS-WiFi from the very first day. We hardly spent any time on the RTOS, either in scheduling tasks or in understanding the implementations. With excellent documentation and extraordinary support the only thing that we were working on was our application software. Great to work with Express Logic and would not hesitate adapting to any product from Express Logic."
Unitronics designs, develops and manufactures excellent PLCs for more than 20 years. Unitronics latest line, UniStream™ is an All-in-One PLC with HMI. The UniStream platform offers a lower total system cost, 50% less programming time, and a great end user experience. Unistonics head of R&D says:
“We needed a robust, stable RTOS kernel for our project, which was to build—from the ground up—an entirely new generation of PLC controllers, UniStream™. Our research led us to Express Logic, a very well-known company with a reputation for excellent products. The ThreadX RTOS, together with TraceX, which allows us to track and handle system events at a high resolution, has enabled us to develop a truly robust, flexible, and fast embedded OS with a minimal footprint. It naturally followed that we select the NetX TCP/IP Protocol Stack implementation for our communication requirements, and we have been very pleased with the results. Feedback from the field regarding our PLC performance shows that Express Logic was exactly the right choice for us.”
Wincor NixdorfWincor Nixdorf, the world’s leading provider of high-end banking and retail solutions, is using Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS to control their innovative reverse vending machine (RVM) solutions.
“ThreadX provides an optimal combination of footprint, performance and functionality, which delivers excellent support for real-time operations.”
"As for our experience, we were using MicroC, a low cost RTOS without support. Due to the complexity of the RF network and the asynchronous interrupts, the MicroC was very unstable. After extensive testing, we switched to ThreadX and found our instability problems went away and we could then continue with our software development. With ThreadX we completed product development and were able to perform important demonstrations including 3 days of testing with students in a Usability study in Chicago with Riverside Publishing, our partner. During this test the units were operated continuously for 5 hours at a stretch without a single failure."
