What is VxWorks?
Throughout the device development cycle, engineers must spend valuable time integrating standard technologies. Although these technologies are required for commercial acceptance, they do not offer enough differentiating features to give devices an edge in the market. To gain that competitive advantage, developers need a quick and easy way to integrate the fundamental technologies and enable the production process to move forward.Wind River® offers pre-integrated and tested run-time middleware technologies that work across multiple industries and device applications. Wind River VxWorks® platform components allow engineers to take advantage of run-time technologies such as advanced networking, security, and a variety of protocols.
