Renesas Electronics America and Express Logic Announce RZ Express Program to Drive Development of HMI Applications

Renesas Electronics America, a leading supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOSs), announce the new RZ Express program—an optimized package of high-performance microprocessors (MPUs), easy-to-use RTOS, and comprehensive middleware solutions ideal for high-resolution displays used in the design of human-machine interface (HMI) applications.

The RZ Express program offers embedded designers developing a commercial application with any Renesas RZ/A1 high-performance MPU the chance to obtain a valuable single-product license for Express Logic’s ThreadX® RTOS. This includes any Express Logic middleware components required to complete the application—NetX™, USBX™, FileX®, and GUIX™. Additionally, free software support and maintenance is provided for 90 days.* The RZ Express program brings together a powerful hardware platform and a leading commercial RTOS to help reduce design and execution risk by providing a proven path to high-performance user interfaces.

“Using the Express Logic RTOS and middleware, including GUIX, helps designers quickly and effectively build differentiated HMI solutions on top of the Renesas RZ/A1 hardware platform,” said Ritesh Tyagi, vice president of marketing for Renesas Electronics America. “The RZ/A1 MPUs have been optimized for HMI applications and, when used with GUIX and the Express Logic middleware, provide an optimal solution for high-resolution displays.”

Renesas RZ/A series of MPUs combine a high-performance ARM® Cortex-A9 processor with up to an industry-leading 10MB of on-chip RAM to support faster device control, digital audio and video-signal processing, and much more. The large on-chip RAM removes the need for external SDRAM, enabling low-power, cost-effective embedded display applications at up to WXGA resolution. The RZ/A MPUs can also drive two displays and execute code in place from cost-effective QSPI flash memory.

“Today’s end user expects to manage an embedded device through an intuitive human-machine interface,” noted William E. Lamie, president of Express Logic. “RZ Express provides engineers with the fully integrated tools they need to design a system that is responsive, powerful, and graphically pleasing all within a minimal footprint. What’s more, RZ Express provides this robust software support free, saving development teams thousands of dollars otherwise needed for such high-quality software.”

RTOS/Middleware

Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS is deployed in over two billion electronic products, most of which are powered by ARM-based processors. ThreadX and Express Logic’s related middleware provide priority-based, preemptive, real-time scheduling, messaging, IPv4/IPv6 networking, USB Host/Device, and GUI software support for these systems. The Express Logic products strongly complement the Renesas RZ/A MPU.

The RZ Express promotion is valid only in the Americas (North America, South America and Central America). Qualified customers* can request a single-product license by registering their project with Renesas. For more information, or to apply for the program, visit http://am.renesas.com/RZExpress.
