AMD Embedded G-Series adds RTOS from Express Logic

Semiconductor company AMD has said that embedded software provider Express Logic has brought its 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, said the company.

AMD Embedded Solutions director Buddy Broeker said with the addition of ThreadX to AMD’s growing embedded ecosystem, customers can deploy the same reliable and royalty-free licensed OS that is currently deployed in more than one billion industrial and consumer devices worldwide.

Broeker said, "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. Express Logic also offers a ThreadX Safety-Critical Certification Pack that can help speed certification of regulated systems, the company said.
