Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform® Provides Turnkey Support for the Microsoft Azure IoT Software Development Kit (SDK)

Express Logic Extends Existing Azure Cloud Support to the Azure Software Development Kit (SDK)

San Diego, CA, September 5, 2018 — Express Logic, provider of the industry-leading X-Ware IoT Platform® powered by the stalwart ThreadX® RTOS, today announced seamless safe and secure support and integration of the Microsoft Azure IoT SDKs. This new support complements the existing direct X-Ware IoT Platform support for Azure.

Extending Options For Azure IoT

Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform provides another option for Azure IoT customers who seek to quickly and easily develop devicesand applications that connect to and are managed by Azure IoT Hub services. X-Ware IoT Platform was created entirely in house and designed from the ground up to be industrial grade. This enables Azure developers using the X-Ware IoT Platform to leverage its size, performance, safety, security, ease of use, and other advanced features to create best-of-class IoT sensors, devices, edge routers, and gateways.

Express Logic’s high-performance ThreadX RTOS is at the heart of the X-Ware IoT Platform. With more than 6.2 billion deployments, as certified by VDC Research, ThreadX is arguably one of the world’s most widely deployed RTOS. ThreadX provides embedded developers with priority-based preemptive scheduling, preemption-threshold™ scheduling, optimized context switching, real-time event trace, downloadable memory-protected application modules, and full determinism, all accessible through a highly intuitive API.

The X-Ware IoT Platform leverages the near-wire-speed performance and small footprint of Express Logic’s NetX Duo™ to provide direct IoT cloud connectivity using Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and NetX Secure TLS/DTLS to provide a fast and secure connection solution.

Complete IoT Development and Connectivity Solution

X-Ware IoT Platform is more than just an RTOS with some connectivity capabilities. It is built upon the powerful, safety-certified NetX Duo dual IPv4/IPv6 stack and includes the safety-certified FileX® embedded FAT-32/exFAT file system, the GUIX™ GUI development and embedded runtime framework, and the USBX™ embedded host/device USB stack. Embedded developers can leverage the entire X-Ware IoT Platform solution to create IoT applications that necessarily must do far more than simply communicate with the cloud.

In addition to the performance and size advantages of the X-Ware IoT Platform, Express Logic’s ThreadX FileX and NetX Duo have attained the highest level of safety certifications, including IEC 61508 SIL 4 (the highest, most dependable level as determined by IEC), 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, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.

“Cloud-networked IoT devices by their very nature require reliable, safe, and secure connectivity all within a limited amount of memory and processing power,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic. “By leveraging X-Ware IoT Platform, Microsoft Azure IoT customers can easily build, deploy, and connect billions of devices using virtually any popular microprocessor – almost instantly.”

Sam George, Director, Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp., said, “Microsoft Azure is committed to meeting the next-generation demands of connected devices to empower businesses to benefit from IoT. The X-Ware IoT Platform works great with Azure IoT services, enabling our customers to rapidly develop and manage devices without compromising security or performance.”
