Wind River extends multicore capabilities for VxWorks RTOS

Multicore Developers Conference 2013, USA: Wind River announced extended multicore capabilities for its industry-leading VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS).

VxWorks has expanded multicore operating system support for the latest Intel, Freescale, and ARM processors, and supports key high performance interfaces required by next generation intelligent systems.

VxWorks, a fully 32-bit and 64-bit capable RTOS, provides comprehensive multicore processor support, including, asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP), symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), and mixed AMP and SMP mode configurations.

The VxWorks AMP- and SMP-enabled platforms allow for scalable, higher-performance multicore-powered products with reduced risk and development investment. In addition, VxWorks can be paired with Wind River Hypervisor for an optimized scalable virtualization solution to enable single core and/or multicore configurations supporting multiple operating systems and AMP/SMP configurations on the same platform.

Wind River has a proven history of best-in-class support for the latest market-leading multicore processors across its product portfolio, which has broadened to include VxWorks support for Intel Atom, Freescale QorIQ T4240, and ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore.

VxWorks enables unparalleled choice in system architecture, from small-scale single core, lower power devices up to large multicore, multi-OS, and multi-application devices. It also provides support for hardware offload acceleration on these devices for packet processing, signal and vector processing, and cryptography.

For the extensive connectivity, performance, and power management capabilities needed in next-generation devices, VxWorks now includes the latest input/output technologies and high speed interfaces to support multicore technologies, including USB 3.0, Serial ATA Revision 3.0, PCI Express 3.0, and Serial RapidIO.
