IoT Platform Supports Potent Processors

Express Logic’s industrial-grade X-Ware IoT Platform provides turnkey support for AndesCore 32-bit N25 and 64-bit NX25 RISC-V processors. The platform includes the ThreadX RTOS, FileX embedded FAT file system, embedded GUIX UI framework, NetX/NetX Duo embedded TCP/IP protocol stack, and USBX embedded USB support.

 

AndesCore N25 and NX25 families are 32- and 64-bit V5 embedded cores extending from the mass-production processors of the AndeStar V3 family. They’re compliant with RISC-V technology while providing differential features, which include Andes Performance Extension to speed up program sequence for memory accesses, branches and other common scenarios, Andes Custom Extension (ACE) to enable user-defined instructions for Domain-Specific Acceleration (DSA), CoDense for code size compression, StackSafe stack overflow/underflow detection to ensure program reliability, and PowerBrake frequency scaling for power saving.

 

In terms of security, the X-Ware IoT platform contains no open source and boasts an extremely small footprint. It automatically scales to use only what is needed by the application, making it viable for the smallest low-power IoT devices. 

 

In addition, the X-Ware IoT Platform, ThreadX, FileX, and NetX Duo have attained high levels of safety certifications. They include IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.
