Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform™ Achieves Thread® Product Certification

X-Ware IoT Platform Brings Industrial Grade Connectivity to Smart Home Automation

San Diego, CA, January 9, 2018  —Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOSes), announces that its industrial-grade X-Ware IoT Platform™ is an official Thread Certified Product and the only such solution from an independent RTOS provider. 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.

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

Certified For a Better User Experience

Thread certification provides more than just protocol compliance. Rather than measuring against single reference implementations, Thread testing validates each device’s specification conformance against a blended network comprised of four reference stacks to ensure device interoperability and to reduce risk and time to market. Compliance with the Thread certification protocols and standards is administered and regulated by UL a global, independent, safety and certification company with more than a century of expertise in implementing certification solutions and standards. 

Safe, Secure, Seamless IoT Connectivity

The X-Ware IoT Platform contains no open source, provides 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 toward helping Thread deliver on its promise,” said Grant Erickson, president of the Thread Group. “We’re very pleased to congratulate Express Logic on their Thread certification of the X-Ware IoT Platform. This achievement significantly positions them to address the growing demand for seamless device connectivity — to each other, to mobile devices, and directly to the cloud — without compromising battery life.”

Thread certification will also allow developers 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.

“The IoT has brought new and exciting networking opportunities to consumer markets, such as the connected home and office, and along with that comes a demand for simple, safe, secure, and seamless device connectivity solutions,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic. “Certification of 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.”
