Micro Digital, Inc.

Company Logo The TI Design Network is a worldwide community of respectable, well-established companies offering products and services that complement TIs semiconductor device solutions. Products and services include a broad range of reference designs, turnkey products and services, system modules, embedded software, engineering services, and development tools that help customers accelerate development efforts and reduce time-to-market.

Company Overview

Micro Digital, Inc., founded in 1975, is the developer of the SMX® RTOS, which began with the smx multitasking kernel, released in 1989, and continued with the addition of many middleware modules, to form a complete RTOS. Each is a strong product on its own, and all are tightly integrated to work well together. We act as our customers' RTOS partner, giving direct access to the engineers that developed the code and working with them to solve problems. MDI is a privately owned company, which allows putting the needs of its customers ahead of shareholders.


SMX® RTOS is a preemptive multitasking, modular Real Time Operating System designed to meet the needs of small to medium-size embedded systems. It is licensed royalty-free and offers good support for the latest TI ARM processors, such as the Sitara and Stellaris families. (See www.smxrtos.com/ti.htm for the latest information about TI processor support.) SMX supports the on-chip USB host, USB device, USB OTG, Ethernet, NAND, SD, and LCD controllers. Kernel, TCP/IP stack, 802.11a/b/g/i/n WiFi, USB stacks, FAT filesystem for flash media, flash file system, GUI, security, IEEE 754 floating point, and other modules are offered independently, saving cost and memory. Each is a strong product on its own, and all are tightly integrated to work well together. Contract services are available directly from MDI to customize and extend our solutions. Application development services can be contracted by consultant partners of MDI.
