Training

Overview

Express Logic offers a comprehensive training program at its state-of-the-art facility in San Diego, California. The initial training course features hands-on embedded systems development using ThreadX, the high-performance RTOS for deeply embedded applications.

Our electronic classroom contains eight modern workstations and multimedia projection capabilities. Each attendee has individual access to a workstation that is loaded with ThreadX and other software for embedded systems applications, so the class size is limited to eight.

The training course is intensive; it combines a rich mixture of RTOS concepts and hands-on embedded systems projects that reinforce these concepts. The projects are presented in a spiral order of depth as increasingly complex embedded systems concepts are investigated and explored.

Each attendee is provided with a detailed training workbook, documentation for the lab projects, a copy of the ThreadX User Guide, a copy of the ThreadX Programmer's Reference Guide, and a ThreadX demonstration system.
