Wind River VxWorks Cert Platform

RTOS for safety-critical applications that require RTCA DO-178, EUROCAE ED-12, or IEC 61508 certification evidence in a single integrated environment, with complete platform integration, including powerful tools for debugging, code analysis, and test.

Overview

Wind River VxWorks Cert Platform provides a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for delivering safety critical applications that must be certified to the stringent requirements of RTCA DO-178B and EUROCAE ED-12B (“Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification”), IEC 61508, and other related software standards.

With VxWorks Cert Platform, developers can take full advantage of technological advances in microprocessors that the VxWorks COTS real-time operating system (RTOS) enables, with the assurance that they will have a strong OS foundation to meet the most demanding safety certification standards.

VxWorks Cert Platform includes the award-winning Wind River Workbench development suite. Wind River Workbench is an Eclipse-based collection of tools designed to accelerate time-tomarket for developers building devices with VxWorks real-time operating systems. From hardware and board initialization to application development, Workbench offers deep capability across the development process in a single integrated environment, with complete platform integration, including powerful tools for debugging, code analysis, and test.
