Jacksonville, FL - April 4, 2006 - CMX Systems, a popular supplier of real-time operating systems, embedded TCP/IP, Flash File Systems, USB as well as CANopen software, announced support for the new Freescale MCF5223x embedded processors.
CMX will support the MCF5223x with their popular embedded RTOS and embedded internet stacks, the CMX-RTX RTOS and the tiny CMX-MicroNet embedded TCP/IP stack.
Jeff Bock, Product Marketing Manager for Freescale’s 16/32 bit Consumer & Industrial Operation said, "Embedded software such as the CMX-RTX RTOS and the CMX-MicroNet TCP/IP stack are an excellent demonstration of how well our MCF5223x technology works with leading-edge embedded software systems. The highly efficient MCF5223x derivatives with onboard FEC, used in conjunction with the extremely small and fast CMX-MicroNet, provides significant benefits to the final consumer using the Internet."
CMX-RTX is a truly preemptive, multi-tasking RTOS supporting a wide variety of 8-, 16-, 32- and 64-bit microcomputers, microprocessors, and DSPs. In the opinion of Microcontroller.com, this "lean and mean" RTOS provides very high performance in a very small memory space, offering the fastest context switching times, and the lowest interrupt latency times, available on the market today.
CMX-MicroNet is an embedded TCP/IP stack specially crafted to work with virtually all 8- and 16-bit processors and those 32-bit processors and DSPs with limited memory resources. With an extremely small program memory requirement from just 3.5K to 20K (depending on configuration and processor), this embedded networking firmware resides and runs directly on the processor with no gateway required.

Pricing for CMX-RTX for the MCF5223x series of processors starts at $4,000 and is available immediately. Pricing for CMX-MicroNet for the MCF5223x series of processors starts at $5,500 and is available immediately. All CMX software is provided with full source code, no royalties on shipped products, and free technical support and software updates.
