ThreadX and CoreDX DDS Optimize Data Distribution in Embedded Real-Time Devices

April 8, 2013―Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced that Express Logic’s ThreadX® RTOS now supports the CoreDX Data Distribution Service (DSS) communications middleware from Twin Oaks Computing. CoreDX DDS simplifies communications processes among different system types, easing the communications challenge between the embedded mobile device and the enterprise-, IT-based network application. The integration of ThreadX RTOS and CoreDX DDS strongly complements ThreadX’s broad deployment in wireless and mobile devices such as routers, PDAs, Android phones, and portable medical devices.


Field Programmable Gate Arrays are a fast, versatile, scalable, and inexpensive development platform. FPGAs often need to communicate and interoperate with GPPs, DSPs, and other FPGAs. Software must manage these highly interconnected communications and interoperability issues, while still delivering optimal performance and reliability. It’s not surprising that as more development occurs on FPGAs, developers want the functionality and convenience of a middleware like DDS.
