RTOS provider Express Logic Inc. has joined Eclipse Foundation, an open-source community whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle.

Recently, Express Logic introduced an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE), BenchX, which provides software developers with the tools they need to build intelligent embedded devices.

The Eclipse Project was originally created by IBM in November 2001 and supported by a consortium of software vendors. The Eclipse Foundation was created in January 2004 as an independent not-for-profit corporation to act as the steward of the Eclipse community. The independent not-for-profit corporation was created to allow a vendor neutral and open, transparent community to be established around Eclipse. Today, the Eclipse community consists of individuals and organizations from a cross section of the software industry.

"We're excited to become part of the open-source community through membership in the Eclipse Foundation," commented William Lamie, president of Express Logic. "Our initial impression has been outstandingly positive, and we've been greeted with offers of cooperation and assistance from the community that are most refreshing. We plan to work with the other members of the Eclipse Foundation to help strengthen the Eclipse ecosystem with our particular emphasis on benefits to embedded developers."
