Express Logic to Sponsor Renesas Technology’s U.S. Developers’ Conference

Express Logic is sponsoring the Renesas Developers’ Conference, which focuses on providing design ideas for applications in consumer, industrial, automotive and communication markets. The conference takes place in San Diego from October 13-15. Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS has been ported to the Renesas SuperH processor family and Renesas has integrated RTOS-aware debugging into its Embedded Workbench development tools.

San Diego, CA, October 02, 2008 --( Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), will sponsor Renesas Technology’s upcoming Developers’ Conference, which will be held in San Diego, California from October 13-15, 2008. The Renesas Developers’ Conference is a premiere technology event that enables embedded system developers to obtain ideas and data for new designs that use microcontrollers (MCUs) and microprocessors (MPUs) for applications in consumer, industrial, automotive and communication markets, among others.

“We’re excited that Express Logic is joining our conference as our technology partner,” said Ali Sebt, executive vice president at Renesas Technology America, Inc. “We recognize the importance of offering system-level expertise to support the needs of our customers. To realize this goal, we’re closely working with companies like Express Logic to develop highly integrated and sophisticated semiconductor-based solutions that simplify and accelerate the process of developing new embedded system products. At the Developers’ Conference, we aim to inspire ideas and create innovative visions, and showcase solutions that will shape the foundation of next-generation MCU- and MPU-based products that move the electronics industry forward.”

”We are proud to be working with Renesas at this year’s Developers’ Conference, showcasing our RTOS and middleware support for their SuperH family of 32-bit processors,” commented William E. Lamie, president of Express Logic. “By demonstrating and offering a working media server this year, we’ve integrated our RTOS, USB, file system and graphics software into a working reference design that will save Renesas customers’ months of development time.”

Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS is a small, fast, royalty-free RTOS for Renesas SuperH processors. Supporting SH-2, SH-2A, SH3, SH3-DSP, SH-4, and SH-4A processors, ThreadX offers developers the ability to select the best Renesas processor for their application needs. RTOS aware debugging is fully integrated into Renesas’ high-performance Embedded Workbench development tool IDE, making a ThreadX application development fast and easy.

About the Renesas Technology Developer’s Conference
Hosted by the world’s largest MCU supplier, the two-and-a-half-day technology conference gives system designers developing embedded systems special access to the latest advances in microprocessor and microcontroller technology, as well as practical solutions that can be applied to accelerate and improve their engineering projects. The event consists of about 80 courses on a wide range of hot topics, ranging from robust CAN connectivity for networked embedded systems, direct-drive solutions for TFT LCD panels in consumer electronics products, motor control methods for home appliances, to FlexRay technology and hybrid vehicles. Content-rich lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions will be led by embedded systems experts from Renesas and technology partners from a large support community of third-party suppliers. About 250-300 are expected to attend the event. Similar events will be hosted in Europe, Japan and Asia in the near future.
