Express Logic Inc. announced that it has entered into a software license agreement with Datang Mobile Communications Equipment Co. Ltd, a leading telecommunications corporation in China.

Under this agreement, Datang Mobile is licensed to use Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS supports new Diamond CPU cores" target=_blank>real-time operating systems (RTOS) in its products for the TD-SCDMA (Time Division-Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) field. TD-SCDMA, proposed by Datang Telecom Technology and Industry Group on behalf of the Chinese government, was approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in May 2000 and by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in March 2001 as one of the 3G mobile communications standards.

Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS is a small, fast, royalty-free OS designed for high-volume consumer devices where high reliability and low cost are important. According to the press release, ThreadX provides advanced technology to manage application software with extreme efficiency. ThreadX resides in under 10KB of ROM, enabling it to fit on-chip advanced SoC designs. Express Logic added that this small footprint saves cost and power, while also reducing overhead and extending battery life in portable devices.

Datang Mobile and Express Logic also disclosed that they are entering into extensive discussions intended to enable the former to distribute Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS throughout the world. Under this new agreement, Express Logic's products will be integrated into Datang Mobile's User Equipment (UE) solution for 3G wireless phone equipment where ThreadX would be used to manage the software that controls RF communications between the phone and network base stations.

William Lamie, CEO of Express Logic, commented, "This agreement provides us with an excellent channel for growth in China and confirms that Express Logic has the leading technological solutions and expertise that communications equipment manufacturers need."
