|ThreadX RTOS Support Being Extended For Multiple MIPS CPU Generations|
Imagination Technologies and Express Logic announce expansion of ThreadX RTOS support for MIPS CPUs
Imagination Technologies and Express Logic today announced their extended ThreadX support of multiple generations of MIPS CPUs which range from deeply embedded M-class cores to high-performance I-class applications processors
Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) and Express Logic announce expanded support of Express Logic’s industrial grade ThreadX® RTOS (real time operating system) for Imagination’s MIPS CPUs, with the addition of the multi-threaded MIPS I-class I6400 processor core. This development extends ThreadX support of multiple generations of MIPS CPUs which range from deeply embedded M-class cores to high-performance I-class applications processors.
ThreadX is Express Logic's advanced RTOS is designed specifically for deeply embedded, real-time, and IoT applications, and has more than 5.4 billion deployments to-date. With an advanced feature set and highly scalable performance, 64-bit MIPS I6400 CPUs are seeing adoption across a broad set of applications including digital home, automotive, AI, real-time embedded and networking equipment. For these applications, the combination of the I6400 with ThreadX provides developers with a small footprint, scalable and highly efficient solution.
William E. Lamie, president, Express Logic, says: “MIPS I-class CPUs are gaining traction for a number of real-time embedded environments where ThreadX is the RTOS of choice. Companies looking for a safe, secure, fast and compact operating system for MIPS CPUs can rely on our ThreadX and ThreadX/SMP RTOSes to provide the performance and features they need to succeed.”
Says Jim Nicholas, EVP MIPS Processor IP, Imagination: “The hardware multi-threading technology in our I-class processors brings significant advantages to real time embedded systems, and allows developers to efficiently exploit inherent parallelism in their workloads. We see ThreadX as an important part of the ecosystem that MIPS is addressing so we are delighted to extend our partnership with Express Logic to enable customers to use the ThreadX RTOS on the I6400 CPU.”
