April 13, 2016Express Logic, Inc., announced the publication of the third edition of Real-Time Embedded Multithreading, a developers’ textbook on real-time software development by Dr. Edward L. Lamie. Dr. Lamie, professor emeritus and founding chair of computer science departments at Central Michigan University and California State University, Stanislaus, directs educational services at Express Logic, where he is responsible for development and delivery of Express Logic’s customer training. The latest release of Real-Time Embedded Multithreading contains the fundamentals of developing real-time operating systems and multithreading with all the functionality of ThreadX Version 5.

Real-Time Embedded Multithreading offers a guide for the developer or student. Beginning with a discussion of general concepts and terminology, it quickly moves on to an exploration of the services and features of the reference RTOS and culminates with a major case study. Chapters such as “The Thread—The Essential Component,” “Memory Management: Byte Pools and Block Pools,” and “Thread Communication with Message Queues,” expose pitfalls and problem areas in real-time development and point to possible solutions.

Much of the success of a real-time implementation hinges on the simplicity and robustness of the multithreading capabilities of the RTOS. With over 5.4 billion units deployed, ThreadX is an option for embedded systems programmers, software engineers, electrical engineers, and firmware engineers with a programming background in C or C++. The book includes a downloadable link to a Win32-based ThreadX demonstration system complete with all the sample systems, end-of-chapter projects, and case study. Real-Time Embedded Multithreading is Dr. Lamie's sixth book. Dr. Lamie also authored:

  • PL/I Programming: A Structured, Disciplined Approach
  • Pascal Programming
  • Real-Time Embedded Multithreading: Using ThreadX and ARM
  • Real-Time Embedded Multithreading: Using ThreadX and MIPS
  • Real-Time Embedded Multithreading: Using ThreadX, Second Edition
