Express Logic unveils industrial-grade IoT device-to-cloud connectivity platform
Express Logic, Inc. has 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 Logicís ThreadX RTOS and NetX Duo dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack. The X-Ware IoT platform leverages the benefits of NetX Duo and introduces new IoT protocol support for IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN), Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT), Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) and Lightweight M2M (LWM2M).
The X-Ware IoT platform contains no open-source code and is designed for the smallest IoT devices as it boasts a small footprint. For example, an 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. Embedded developers of safety- and security-critical IoT devices have 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.
NetX Duo has achieved the highest level of safety pre-certification for industrial safety-certification levels for industrial safetyís IEC 61508 SIL 4, medicalís IEC 62304 Class C, automotiveís ISO 26262 ASIL D, and rail transportationís 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, 60335-1 Annex R, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.
The X-Ware IoT platform is integrated with Express Logicís ThreadX thru NetX Duo and both products are certified to the same SIL 4 and ASIL D levels. Both products also support all major commercial processors.
ďIn our rapidly changing technology landscape, we as vendors need to work together to assist our customers in their continued innovation by providing reliable and professional solutions and services. We are proud to have Express Logic as a close partner in this,Ē said Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. "Express Logicís X-Ware IoT Platform offers a powerful and robust technology solution with unique commercial value, delivering a superior developer experience.
