Wind River VxWorks

Scalable Real Time Operating System (RTOS)

Wind River VxWorks is an embedded Real Time Operating System (RTOS) that focuses on scalability and modularity. Kernel profiles allow customization specific to the needs of an organization whether it be safety, security or graphics. Kernels can be 32-bit or 64-bit and can be built to provide Symmetrical Multiprocessing (SMP) or Asymmetrical Multiprocessing (AMP) where supported.

Legacy Support

Not all projects can run on the latest version of the OS, due to third party libraries or version dependent legacy code.

X-ES has experience porting and maintaining BSPs to older versions of the OS when the development tools support it. This can allow customer projects to transition more smoothly to new hardware.

VxWorks 7

VxWorks 7 is the latest version of the operating system and it presents a much more modular and scalable configuration approach. Support for the latest build tools and libraries (such as Intel® IPP 8 and GCC 4.8) come with this version of the OS, as well as extended support for graphics.

X-ES provides VxWorks 7 support for our SBCs and actively integrates Wind River updates.

Modular Approach

X-ES extends its modular design approach across both hardware and software. Code is written for a functional piece of hardware and then extended to all compatible designs.

By leveraging this approach it is possible to provide uniform APIs and cross-product testing, resulting in more complete test exposure and reliability.
