Express Logic Inc. and Renesas Technology Corp. have rolled out a reference design platform for the development of MP3-based media players.

The media player platform is based on Renesas' SuperH SH-2A microcontroller architecture and Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS software. All software components are available through royalty-free licenses, which means that none of the software adds to bill-of-material (BOM) cost, according to Renesas.

The Renesas SH-2A platform is based on the 200MHz, superscalar SH7263 MCU. The SH7263 reference design will be priced between $2,000 and $2,500 with sample boards available in Q1 09.
