Improve Your MIPS Development

Let our extensive experience with the MIPS family of microprocessors help your product development. ThreadX, our high-performance real-time kernel, helps improve your product’s quality and its time-to-market. In addition, using ThreadX makes it easier to enhance your product in the future.

MIPS Optimizations

ThreadX optimizes context switching on the R3000. When context switching occurs inside of a ThreadX service call, only the registers preserved across function calls are saved as part of the thread’s context, i.e. registers s0-s8.

A similar technique is used in interrupt handling. On the front end of interrupt service routines, only the compiler’s scratch registers are saved initially (registers at, v0-v1, a0-a3, and t0-t9). The full register set is saved only if thread preemption is required.

Easy to Use

ThreadX is designed for ease of use. Our API is designed to be easy to understand, powerful, and consistent. The same is true with our reference manual and other supporting documentation.

 
Tools & Stacks:
 

FileX – FileX is Express Logic’s high-performance MS-DOS compatible file system. It is fully integrated with ThreadX and is available for all supported processors. Like ThreadX, FileX is designed to have a small footprint and high-performance, making it ideal for today’s deeply embedded applications that require file operations.

NetX – NetX is Express Logic’s high-performance implementation of TCP/IP protocol standards. It is fully integrated with ThreadX and is available for all supported processors. NetX has a unique Piconet™ architecture. Combined with a zero-copy API, it makes it a perfect fit for today’s deeply embedded applications that require network connectivity.

USBX – USBX™ is Express Logic’s high-performance USB host and device embedded stack. It is fully integrated with ThreadX and is available for all ThreadX supported processors. Like ThreadX, USBX is designed to have a small footprint and high-performance, making it ideal for today’s deeply embedded applications that require to interface with USB devices or be connected with a Windows/Apple/Linux desktop over USB.

TraceX – TraceX™ is Express Logic’s host-based system event analysis tool. TraceX provides developers with a graphical view of real-time system events. TraceX enables embedded developers to visualize and better understand the behavior of their real-time systems.
