Express Logic: X-Ware enables IoT on Microsemi’s Mi-V RISC-V ISA
Express Logic’s industrial-grade X-Ware IoT Platform—powered by ThreadX RTOS—provides turnkey support for Microsemi’s Mi-V RISC-V instruction set architectures (ISAs). RISC-V, a standard, open ISA under the governance of the RISC-V Foundation, offers the open source community portability as well as the ability to test and improve cores more rapidly than they could using closed ISAs. This is because the RISC-V intellectual property core is not encrypted and therefore can be used to ensure trust and certifications not possible with closed architectures. Microsemi’s new Mi-V ecosystem brings together a number of industry leaders involved in the development of RISC-V to leverage their capabilities and streamline RISC-V designs for customers.
Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform, the industry’s most comprehensive deeply embedded run-time offering, includes the ThreadX RTOS, the FileX embedded FAT file system, the embedded GUIX UI framework, the NetX/NetX Duo embedded TCP/IP protocol stack, and the USBX embedded USB support.
The X-Ware IoT Platform contains no open-source code, provides high performance, and boasts an extremely small footprint. The X-Ware IoT Platform automatically scales to use only what is needed by the application, making it perfectly suited for the smallest low-power IoT devices.
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. They include IEC 61508 SIL 4, 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.
X-Ware IoT Platform also offers advanced security protocols, including NetX Secure IPsec, TLS, and DTLS.
