Express Logic’s Latest Edition of Go-To Book on Embedded Real-Time Operating Systems Launched at ESC-Boston
Developers Gain Solid Foundation in Real-Time Embedded Multithreading
Embedded Systems Conference–Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), today 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 complete 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.
“Years of teaching and training university students and professional embedded developers have culminated in the lessons offered in this comprehensive text on real-time multithreading,” commented Dr. Lamie. “This book provides specific real-world references to ensure the instruction is relevant, easy to understand, and readily applicable to embedded systems.”

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 perfect 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
All books are available on Amazon.com and in retail outlets worldwide.
