Bringing reliable performance to developers using TriCore technology

The provider of the X-Ware IoT Platform powered by the ThreadX RTOS, Express Logic, has integrated its X-Ware IoT Platform with the Infineon TriCore family of 32-bit microcontrollers. The X-Ware IoT Platform is built on the ThreadX RTOS, with more than 6.2 billion deployments, and leverages the small footprint and near wirespeed of Express Logic’s NetX Duo IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack for IoT connectivity. 

Infineon TriCore 32-bit microcontrollers are used for real-time control in automotive applications, such as airbags, electronic steering support, anti-lock braking systems (ABS), electronic stability programs (ESP), pedestrian protection, seat adjustment, heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems, and driver assistance systems where the X-Ware IoT Platform already boasts substantial market success. 

With its OSEK Compatibility Kit, the X-Ware IoT Platform is a fit for the TriCore microcontrollers used in automotive applications. The ThreadX OSEK Compatibility Kit is BCC1, BCC2, ECC1, and ECC2 compliant and leverages the inherent size and speed characteristics of ThreadX. In addition, the X-Ware IoT Platform has attained the highest and most dependable level of safety certifications (according to IEC), including ISO 26262, IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, 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, as well as TLS/DTLS security protocols and EAL4+ common criteria security certification. 

For applications that must do more than just connect to the internet, the X-Ware IoT Platform offers a safety-certified FileX embedded FAT-32/exFAT file system, the GUIX GUI development and embedded runtime framework, and the USBX embedded host/device USB stack. 

William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic, stated: “Ensuring safety and security without compromising size and performance is the leading earmark in the IoT world. For example, today’s automobiles have more software-driven systems and sub-systems than ever. 

“The software that manages functions like engine performance and efficiency, vehicle control, and infotainment plays a key role in the safety of the vehicle and in the communication to and from the vehicle to objects and services. The size, performance, safety, and security certifications of our X-Ware IoT Platform make it a perfect match for the future development of embedded IoT devices, systems, sub-systems, and services.”
