AMD announced that embedded software provider Express Logic has brought its industry-leading ThreadX real-time operating system (RTOS) to the AMD Embedded G-Series platform.

The AMD Embedded G-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) provides an advanced, low-power, multicore x86 CPU and a discrete-class DirectX 11-capable GPU on a single, small-footprint die. This family of APUs was created for the requirements of embedded systems, many of which require precise, deterministic timing of RTOS.

"A robust RTOS is critical for many embedded systems. With the addition of ThreadX to AMD's growing embedded ecosystem, our customers can deploy the same reliable and royalty-free licensed OS that's currently deployed in more than one billion industrial and consumer devices worldwide," said Buddy Broeker, director of embedded solutions at AMD. "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 provides "instant on" and a footprint as small as 6KB with automatic scaling as required by the application. In addition to the features and tools designed to make its RTOS easy to implement, Express Logic also provides a ThreadX Safety-Critical Certification Pack that can help speed certification of regulated systems.
