AMD Embedded G-Series Platform Gets Real-Time Operating System Support from Express Logic

ThreadX® RTOS provides precise software timing for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform

(PresseBox) ( Sunnyvale, Calif., )
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced embedded software provider Express Logic has brought its industry-leading ThreadX real-time operating system (RTOS) to the AMD Embedded G-Series platform. The AMD Embedded G-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) offers an advanced, low-power, multi-core x86 CPU and a discrete-class DirectX® 11-capable GPU on a single, small-footprint die. This family of APUs was created expressly for the requirements of embedded systems, many of which require the precise, deterministic timing of an RTOS.

A robust RTOS is critical for many embedded systems. With the addition of ThreadX to AMD's growing embedded ecosystem, our customers can deploy the same reliable and royalty-free licensed OS that's currently deployed in more than one billion industrial and consumer devices worldwide, said Buddy Broeker, Director, Embedded Solutions, AMD. The combination of the AMD Embedded G-Series APUs and ThreadX is a very attractive platform, especially for our customers in highly regulated markets like transportation, medical devices, and gaming, where reliability and time-to-market are critical.

ThreadX offers instant on and a footprint as small as 6KB with automatic scaling as required by the application. In addition to many features and tools designed to make its RTOS easy to implement, Express Logic also offers a ThreadX Safety-Critical Certification Pack that can help speed certification of regulated systems.

AMD and Express Logic will be featuring this technology at the upcoming Embedded Systems Conference, booth 1432.
