Express Logic: industrial-grade IoT device-to-cloud connectivity platform
Express Logic announced the X-Ware IoT Platform, for fast, safe, secure, industrial-grade connectivity of deeply embedded IoT sensors, devices, edge routers, and gateways. The X-Ware IoT Platform is built on top of Express Logic’s high-performance ThreadX RTOS and NetX Duo dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack. The X-Ware IoT Platform leverages all the benefits of NetX Duo and introduces new IoT protocol support for IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks, Message Queue Telemetry Transport, Constrained Application Protocol and Lightweight M2M.
The X-Ware IoT Platform is designed for the smallest of IoT devices. For example, X-Ware IoT Platform support for an 802.15.4 radio device (using 6LoWPAN, IPv6, UDP, DTLS, and CoAP) requires only 25KB of flash memory. This gives embedded developers of safety- and security-critical IoT devices plenty of room to add NetX Secure TLS or DTLS to secure data at the socket layer or NetX Duo IPsec to secure data at the network layer.
For its part, NetX Duo has been precertified at the highest level for safety standards that include industrial safety’s IEC 61508 SIL 4, medical’s IEC 62304 Class C, automotive’s ISO 26262 ASIL D, and rail transportation’s EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, as well as consumer applicance standards 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.
Through NetX Duo, the X-Ware IoT Platform is seamlessly integrated with Express Logic’s ThreadX, and both products are certified to the same SIL 4 and ASIL D levels. Both products also support all major commercial processors, providing a powerful platform for developing safe, secure, high-performance device-to-cloud solutions in a small footprint.
