Express Logic develops, markets and supports the ThreadX® real-time operating system (RTOS), NetX TCP/IP networking stack, USBX USB stack, FileX® embedded file system, and GUIX GUI toolkit for embedded applications.
ThreadX is a royalty-free, full source code, small-footprint, low-overhead RTOS that is extremely easy to learn and use. ThreadX is one of the most widely deployed RTOS products in the world, with over 1.5 billion products based on ThreadX.
Definition: A real-time operating system (RTOS)[Generally pronounced as: Are-toss] is a multitasking operating system intended for real-time applications.
Such applications include embedded systems (programmable thermostats, household appliance controllers, mobile telephones), industrial robots, spacecraft, industrial control (see SCADA), and scientific research equipment.
An RTOS facilitates the creation of a real-time system, but does not guarantee the final result will be real-time; this requires correct development of the software.
An RTOS does not necessarily have high throughput; rather, an RTOS provides facilities which, if used properly, guarantee deadlines can be met generally (soft real-time) or deterministically (hard real-time). An RTOS will typically use specialized scheduling algorithms in order to provide the real-time developer with the tools necessary to produce deterministic behavior in the final system.
An RTOS is valued more for how quickly and/or predictably it can respond to a particular event than for the given amount of work it can perform over time.
Key factors in an RTOS are therefore a minimal interrupt latency and a minimal thread switching latency.
An early example of a large-scale real-time operating system was Transaction Processing Facility developed by American Airlines and IBM for the Sabre Airline Reservations System.
