The Database System Designed for Smart Devices

Anticipating the needs of intelligent connected devices.

Fast, flexible, efficient eXtremeDB gives consumer electronics manufacturers a competitive edge.

Consumer electronics manufacturers compete fiercely based on price and user experience. The right embedded database software in consumer electronics can reduce costs, boost performance and support data-hungry new features, lending a critical advantage to manufacturers. In McObject’s eXtremeDB, consumer electronics manufacturers gain a highly efficient database system to integrate in devices’ embedded software.eXtremeDB’s small code size (approximately 200K) reduces device hardware costs, while its unmatched speed delivers a snappy user experience.

As a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) product, eXtremeDB slashes a device’s time-to-market, compared to using proprietary (homegrown) database code. And the eXtremeDB product family offers deep capabilities. For example, as a hybrid database system, eXtremeDB supports both in-memory and on-disk storage, enabling the use of a single database system across a consumer electronics product line that includes disk-less and disk-enabled products.

eXtremeDB is found in embedded systems like cameras

eXtremeDB’s efficient design and unmatched speed has been giving consumer electronics manufacturers a competitive edge since 2001.  Find eXtremeDB in:

  • Cameras
  • TV set-top boxes
  • Gaming consoles & servers
  • Portable media players
  • Home media servers
  • Internet & VoIP phones

eXtremeDB has a unique blend of features and capabilities perfect for consumer electronics manufacturers.



Core in-memory database system (IMDS) architecture delivers responsiveness measured in microseconds; speed is critical in delivering a competitive user experience.

Review a list of features to look for in a faster database.


eXtremeDB provides full DBMS features with minimal CPU, RAM and storage demands. This results in lower hardware component costs, with the savings in manufacturing dropping directly to the bottom line.

Review a list of features to reduce memory usage.

Hybrid Storage

A simple database schema (design) notation adds persistent storage for specified records in an eXtremeDB database. Optimize embedded software for persistence and performance as well as cost (byte-for-byte, disk storage can be cheaper than RAM) and form factor (disk storage can be physically smaller).

Developer flexibility

Developers can leverage a rich toolset, including event notifications, fast and flexible search methods, support for virtually all data types, and multiple application programming interfaces (SQL ODBC & JDBC, Python, C# can be used with the ODBC .NET Managed Provider. Native C/C++ and Java)

Code quality

Software bugs are time-consuming and expensive. eXtremeDB’s type-safe C/C++ API is a key tool that eliminates a common category of error, and its other advanced debugging features add further stability.

Data integrity

ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated and Durable) transactions offer the gold standard in protecting data integrity.

Broadest OS and RTOS support (including the ability to run without an OS), with source code available.


Built-in Security Features

We’ve upgraded eXtremeDB encryption for data-at-rest with an AES implementation, and utilize SSL/TLS to encrypt data-in-motion. Learn more.


eXtremeDB customer deployments include millions of devices ranging from DIRECTV’s set-top boxes to MP3 players and other audio equipment from JVC/Kenwood.
